Quotes are great, are there any you like, I am sure there are. A brief sentence can convey a whole speech, sometimes.

I must be cruel only to be kind;
Thus bad begins, and worse remains behind.

William Shakespeare

I'll contribute a few others later, but I'll start with my " personal responsibility " philosophy and "making a difference."
I learned this quote a few decades ago when I started my union leadership career.
I still subscribe to it.

"If it is to be - it is up to me."

"Religion convinced the world that there is an invisible man in the sky who watches everything you do. And there's ten things He doesn't want you to do or else you'll go to a burning place with a lake of fire until the end of eternity. But He loves you!.....And He needs money! He is all powerful,,,,but He can't handle money!"

"Life's but a walking shadow, a poor player
That struts and frets his hour upon the stage,
And then is heard no more. It is a tale
Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury,
Signifying nothing."
- Macbeth, Act 5, scene 5

"I must go down to the sea again, to the lonely sea and the sky;
I left my shoes and socks there - I wonder if they're dry?"
- Spike Milligan.

Hold infinity in the palms of your hand and eternity in an hour.”
William Blake, 'Auguries of Innocence'

"A nation's greatness is not measured by how it rewards its strongest members, but by how it treats its weakest members"

"There is no greater calling than to serve your fellow men. There is no greater contribution than to help the weak. There is no greater satisfaction than to have done it well."

“We cannot seek achievement for ourselves and forget about progress and prosperity for our community... Our ambitions must be broad enough to include the aspirations and needs of others, for their sakes and for our own.”

Everything that we see is a shadow cast by that which we do not see.

"Sometimes, someone says something so small, but it just fits the empty space in your heart." - unknown

Forgive quickly, Kiss slowly, Love truly, Laugh uncontrollably, And never regret things you've done that made you smile.

Dance as if no one were watching,
Sing as if no one were listening,
And live every day as if it were your last.

When I was young my mother said "Don't speak to strangers",
yet with time I've learned a stranger's just a friend I haven't met.
