Not exactly sure if this is current, but I absolutely love this story and couldn't help myself.
"What do we live for, if not to make life less difficult for each other?"
"Each morning when I open my eyes I say to myself: I, not events, have the power to make me happy or unhappy today. I can choose which it shall be. Yesterday is dead, tomorrow hasn't arrived yet. I have just one day, today, and I'm going to be happy in it."
"Don't be afraid your life will end; be afraid that it will never begin."
