Today’s Positive Thoughts:
When you get to the end of your rope, tie a knot and hang on.
Kind words can be short and easy to speak, but their echoes are truly endless.
The future depends on what we do in the present.
Nobody made a greater mistake than he who did nothing because he could only do a little.
Real generosity is doing something nice for someone who will never find out.
Life’s most urgent question is: what are you doing for others?
