And a Heaven in a Wild Flower,
Hold Infinity in the palm of your hand
And Eternity in an hour.

— Swahili Proverb
Recognize that you are unique in all eternity. . . .You are one of a kind ! . . . there is nobody like you anywhere on Earth today, and there never will be anybody like you in all eternity, because the Universe never duplicates itself. It all boils down to the fact that if any one of us does not fulfill that purpose for which he or she was placed on Earth, growth is slowed down because nobody can do what you do, exactly the way you do it. Very simply, that means that there is no competition.
— Foster Hibbard

— George Bernard Shaw
Luck never gives; it only lends.
— Swedish Proverb
The key to happiness is having dreams . . . The key to success is making dreams come true.
