Uplifting quotes...

on Wed Dec 14 2016, 18:22
Uplifting quotes...by Dr Norman Vincent Peale.

I read his book when I arrived in Canada at 19 years old, "The Power of Positive Thinking". It is very profound if anyone wants to buy it on line. It certainly changed my life.

Anyhow, I have three and a half pages of his famous quotes in front of me and will post a new one everyday until they have been used up.

Please feel free to add your own uplifting quotes.



"Shoot for the moon. Even if you miss, you'll land among the stars"

Quote for the 19th December.

“Be so strong that nothing can disturb your peace of mind. Talk health, happiness, and prosperity to every person you meet. Make all your friends feel there is something special in them. Look at the sunny side of everything. Think only the best, be as enthusiastic about the success of others as you are about your own.

Forget the mistakes of the past and press on to the greater achievements of the future. Give everyone a smile. Spend so much time improving yourself that you have no time left to criticize others. Be too big for worry and too noble for anger.”
