Our greatest glory is not in never falling, but in rising every time we fall.

Attitudes are contagious. Positive attitudes give energy, negative attitudes drain - follow the positive ones.
Tony Vickers-Willis (Psychologist)

“Meaning is something you build into your life. You build it out of your past, out of your affections and loyalties, out of the experience of humankind as it is passed on to you, out of your own talent and understanding, out of the things you believe in, out of the things and people you love, out of the values for which you are willing to sacrifice something. The ingredients are there. You are the only one who can put them together into that pattern that will be your life. Let it be a life that has dignity and meaning for you.”
John Gardner (USA Philosopher)

"If you always do what you've always done, you will always get what you've always got"

"When the first Superman movie came out I was frequently asked 'What is a hero?' I remember the glib response I repeated so many times. My answer was that a hero is someone who commits a courageous action without considering the consequences--a soldier who crawls out of a foxhole to drag an injured buddy to safety. And I also meant individuals who are slightly larger than life: Houdini and Lindbergh, John Wayne, JFK, and Joe DiMaggio. Now my definition is completely different. I think a hero is an ordinary individual who finds strength to persevere and endure in spite of overwhelming obstacles." Christopher Reeve

"In the seed of our darkest moments is the harvest of our greatest possibilities" (Tony Vickers-Willis, Psychologist)

Life is like a game of cards. The hand that is dealt you represents determinism; the way you play it is free will.

If we do not plant knowledge when young, it will give us no shade when we are old.

“When one door of happiness closes, another opens, but often we look so long at the closed door that we do not see the one that has been opened for us”.
Helen Keller (Blinded aged 1 from virus - famous advocate for the disabled).

"Perhaps sex IS the MAGIC elixir of life!
Jim Vickers-Willis (Sex Education Campaigner)

"We humans are social beings. We come into the world as the result of others' actions. We survive here in dependence on others. Whether we like it or not, there is hardly a moment of our lives when we do not benefit from others' activities. For this reason it is hardly surprising that most of our happiness arises in the context of our relationships with others. "
His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama
