For years, I worked in several organizations and one behavior I always did in arriving at work was comprised of two things at the same time. The first was to say good morning and the next was to smile as I said it. By the time I got to my work area, I had smiled to over twelve people. Now, I admit, there were a lot of mornings when I really didn't feel like smiling or even to say hello. But, I did anyway and the interesting result was that by the time I reached my work area, I felt better. Byron Pulsifer, Just Smile 

Inspirational indeed. I’m a 17-year-old student and struggling through my final exams that will determine whether or not I get into university. All the quotes are helpful, it gives one hope when hope is perched at the window about to leave. I made a lot of mistakes with regards to studying, but have come to the realization that none of that matters, all that does matter is the present moment and whether we to choose to say yes or no, every moment is an opportunity. Here are a few quotes to add to this collection:
“Even though Graham and I went back to arguing and stealing socks and hiding each other's toothbrushes in the litter box, I didn't forget that Graham didn't think I needed a best friend, because either it meant he thought I was cool enough to handle everything alone or—and this was what I hoped—it meant that he was my best friend, quietly, forever, no matter what.

Actually, I love Yip Man’s quote (is it just me or does “Yip Man” sound like a name for a bizarre kind of superhero?). We tend to eat and drink, taking the sustenance for granted. Half the time, we are not even fully aware that we are eating or drinking, absorbed in the TV instead. Yip Man is saying “This is important. Pay attention. The water does not have to be here yet here it is.” He is making us aware in order to fully experience drinking.
67.) “Some of the biggest challenges in relationships come from the fact that most people enter a relationship in order to get something: they’re trying to find someone who’s going to make them feel good. In reality, the only way a relationship will last is if you see your relationship as a place that you go to give, and not a place that you go to take.”
