Some suggestions for you :

You never know what events are going to transpire to get you home.

Remember that there is no happiness in having or in getting, but only in giving.

Each misfortune you encounter will carry in it the seed of tomorrow's good luck.

Failure will never overtake me if my determination to succeed is strong enough.

Love doesn't sit there like a stone, it has to be made, like bread: remade all the time, made new.

The only certain means is to render more and better service than is expected of you no matter what your task may be.

It is those who concentrates on but one thing at a time who advance in this world. The great man or woman is the one who never steps outside his or her specialty or foolishly dissipates his or her individuality.

If I persist long enough I will win.

I will persist until I succeed. I was not delivered unto this world in defeat, nor does failure course in my veins. I am not a sheep waiting to be prodded by my shepherd.

The height of my goals will not hold me in awe, though I may stumble often before they are reached.

A smile remains the most inexpensive gift I can bestow on anyone and yet its powers can vanquish kingdoms.

Obstacles are necessary for success because in selling, as in all careers of importance, victory comes only after many struggles and countless defeats.

The person who knows one thing and does it better than anyone else, even if it only be the art of raising lentils, receives the crown he merits. If he raises all his energy to that end, he is a benefactor of mankind and its rewarded as such.

Always render more and better service than is expected of you, no matter what your task may be.
