If you are honest, people may cheat you. Be honest anyway. If you find happiness, people may be jealous. Be happy anyway. The good you do today may be forgotten tomorrow. Do good anyway. Give the world the best you have and it may never be enough. Give your best anyways. For you see, in the end, it is between you and God. It was never between you and them anyway.
the one thing that has stuck with me every day since my English teacher told me it in middle school is:
"When referring to someone, always say who they are before anything else about them, because being a person always comes first"
Instead of saying “the mentally ill man,” say “the man with a mental illness”
Putting someone’s characteristics (especially negative ones) before them is dehumanizing and rude. Don’t do it.

If we want to develop society as a whole, we have to educate the whole nation — even the least able. The secret is that we take people who have a passion to be teachers because teaching is all about offering possibilities to someone for growth; it’s about paving the way for someone else. So, I believe that teaching is an art; you create something out of someone else and feel proud of the results that someone else achieves.
The death of the heart is caused by the lack of reckoning oneself and following ones desire.
We should not expect that the presence or absence of something will determine our happiness. The only thing that determines our happiness is us. It is not an expectation we should have from anything else. It exists from within.
