You start dying slowly

If you do not travel
If you do not read
If you do not listen to the sounds of life
If you do not appreciate yourself

You start dying slowly
When you kill your self-esteem;
When you do not let others help you

You start dying slowly
If you become a slave of your habits
Walking everyday on the same paths …
If you do not change your routine
If you do not wear different colors
Or if you do not speak to those who you don’t know

You start dying slowly
If you avoid to feel passion
And their turbulent emotions
Those that make your eyes glisten
And your heart beat fast

You start dying slowly
If you do not change your life
when you are not satisfied with your job
or with your love
if you do not risk what is safe for the uncertain
If you do not go after a dream
If you do not allow yourself
At least once in your lifetime
To run away from sensible advice

If you always do what interests you, at least one person is pleased.
Katharine Hepburn
All our dreams can come true – if we have the courage to pursue them.
Walt Disney

There is only one thing that makes a dream impossible to achieve: the fear of failure.

Paulo Coelho

Forgive others, not because they deserve forgiveness, but because you deserve peace.
Jonathan Lockwood Hule
You have not lived today until you have done something for someone who can never repay you.
John Bunyan
Don’t worry what others are doing. Do you!
Russell Simmons

No one can make you feel inferior without your consent.

Eleanor Roosevelt

Plant your garden and decorate your own soul, instead of waiting for someone to bring you flowers.
Jose Luis Borges
To see a world in a grain of sand and a heaven in a wildflower, hold infinity in the palm of your hand and eternity in an hour.
William Blake
Love the moment. Flowers grow out of dark moments. Therefore, each moment is vital. It affects the whole. Life is a succession of such moments and to live each is to succeed.
Corita Kent
