    STUDY while others are sleeping.
    DECIDE while others are delaying.
    PREPARE while others are daydreaming.
    BEGIN while others are procrastinating.
    WORK while others are wishing.
    SAVE while others are wasting.
    LISTEN while others are talking.
    SMILE while others are frowning.
    COMMEND while others are criticizing.
    PERSIST while others are quitting.

    ? William Arthur Ward

    Heres a couple more:

    ?Don't cry because it's over. Smile because it happened.?

    2 Timothy 1:7...For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.

    Both of these I have on my desk as well.

    One I heard many years ago, before I was a jw, from a friend at university who had become a born again christian:

    If you meet me and forget me, you have lost nothing. If you meet Jesus and forget him, you have lost everything.

    I like this one by Oscar Wilde as well:

    One can survive everything, nowadays, except death, and live down everything except a good reputation.

    The one that meant most to me for the last year or so:

    Suicide is a permanent solution to temporary problems. (I don't know who said it).

    Another couple for more optimistic times!:

    "A man can fail many times, but he isn't a failure until he begins to blame somebody else." John Burroughs.

    "Do all the good you can, by all the means you can, in all the ways you can, in all the places you can, at all the times you can, to all the people you can, as long as ever you can." - John Wesley.

    No matter what you do, no matter how great, no matter how stupid, no matter how loving, no matter how cruel, wonderful, shortsighted or wise, you always do with a positive intention for yourself in the moment when you do it.
