Napoleon Bonaparte 1769 - 1821

Napoleon Bonaparte

Politician and military leader

One must learn to forgive and not to hold a hostile, bitter attitude of mind, which offends those about us and prevents us from enjoying ourselves; one must recognize human shortcomings and adjust himself to them rather than to be constantly finding fault with them.

When one door of happiness closes, another opens; but often we look so long at the closed door that we do not see the one which has been opened for us.

Helen Keller Door Open Door Closed Quote

Believe, when you are most unhappy, that there is something for you to do in the world. So long as you can sweeten another's pain, life is not in vain.

Joanne Rowling

Depression is the most unpleasant thing I have ever experience... It is that absence of being able to envisage that you will ever be cheerful again. The absence of hope. That very deadened feeling, which is so very different from feeling sad. Sad hurts but it's a healthy feeling. It's a necessary thing to feel. Depression is very different.

The world is full of wonderful things you haven't seen yet. Don't ever give up on the chance of seeing them.

We do not need magic to transform our world. We carry all the power we need inside ourselves already. We have the power to imagine better.
