The Unbelievable Truth

“It is an old maxim of mine that when you have excluded the impossible, whatever remains, however improbably, must be the truth.”

**Arthur Conan Doyle

There is Always Tomorrow

“While there is life there is hope. I beg to assert…that as long as a man’s heart beats, as long as a man’s flesh quivers, I do not allow that a being gifted with thought and will can allow himself to despair.”

**Jules Verne

Wonders of Man & Nature

“Great things are done when men and mountains meet.”

~~ William Blake

Blocking the Possible

“The person who says it cannot be done should not interrupt the person doing it.”

~~Chinese Proverb

No Greater Enemy Than Thyself

“A person who doubts himself is like a man who would enlist in

the ranks of his enemies and bear arms against himself. He

makes his failure certain by himself being the first person to be

convinced of it.”

–Alexandre Dumas

Happiness at Rest

“Happiness is a butterfly, which when pursued, is always just

beyond your grasp, but which, if you will sit down quietly, may

alight upon you.”

-Nathaniel Hawthorne

The Good at Heart

“It’s really a wonder that I haven’t dropped all my ideals,

because they seem so absurd and impossible to carry out. Yet I

keep them, because in spite of everything, I still believe that

people are really good at heart.”

-Anne Frank

This means to much more when you understand that Miss Frank wrote this in her diary as a young Jewish girl hiding from the Nazis with her family in WWII.  She did not survive the camps, but up to the last entry she maintained her faith in the world. If she can believe in humanity, who can then do otherwise?
