Steve Maraboli
“This life is for loving, sharing, learning, smiling, caring, forgiving, laughing, hugging, helping, dancing, wondering, healing, and even more loving. I choose to live life this way. I want to live my life in such a way that when I get out of bed in the morning, the devil says, 'aw shit, he's up!”
Steve Maraboli, Unapologetically You: Reflections on Life and the Human Experience

Laurell K. Hamilton
“You can't save everybody. In fact, there are days when I think you can't save anyone. Each person has to save himself first, then you can move in and help. I have found this philosophy does not work during a gun battle, or a knife fight either. Outside of that it works just fine.”
Laurell K. Hamilton, Guilty Pleasures

Sylvia Plath

Michael P. Watson

J. Cornell Michel
“The pretty ones are usually unhappy. They expect everyone to be enamored of their beauty. How can a person be content when their happiness lies in someone else's hands, ready to be crushed at any moment? Ordinary-looking people are far superior, because they are forced to actually work hard to achieve their goals, instead of expecting people to fall all over themselves to help them.”
J. Cornell Michel, Jordan's Brains: A Zombie Evolution

Mike  Norton
“One of the greatest evils is the foolishness of a good man. For the giving man to withhold helping someone in order to first assure personal fortification is not selfish, but to elude needless self-destruction; martyrdom is only practical when the thought is to die, else a good man faces the consequence of digging a hole from which he cannot escape, and truly helps no one in the long run.”
Mike Norton, Just Another War Story

Richelle E. Goodrich
“Every sunrise is an invitation for us to arise and brighten someone's day.”
Richelle E. Goodrich, Smile Anyway

Criss Jami
“In the land where excellence is commended, not envied, where weakness is aided, not mocked, there is no question as to how its inhabitants are all superhuman.”
Criss Jami, Venus in Arms

Rachel Naomi Remen
“Many times when we help we do not really serve. . . . Serving is also different from fixing. One of the pioneers of the Human Potential Movement, Abraham Maslow, said, "If all you have is a hammer, everything looks like a nail.' Seeing yourself as a fixer may cause you to see brokenness everywhere, to sit in judgment of life itself. When we fix others, we may not see their hidden wholeness or trust the integrity of the life in them. Fixers trust their own expertise. When we serve, we see the unborn wholeness in others; we collaborate with it and strengthen it. Others may then be able to see their wholeness for themselves for the first time.”
Rachel Naomi Remen

Shannon L. Alder
“There comes a time in your life when you can no longer put off choosing. You have to choose one path or the other. You can live safe and be protected by people just like you, or you can stand up and be a leader for what is right. Always, remember this: People never remember the crowd; they remember the one person that had the courage to say and do what no one would do.”
Shannon L. Alder

Shannon L. Alder
“They say faith is taking the first step when you can’t see the whole staircase. Actually, wisdom is seeing the elevator behind it that would have taken you to the top floor.”
Shannon L. Alder

Holly Black
“A stray dog, I might understand," she said. "But this? You are too softhearted."
No, Mabry," Ravus said. "I am not." He looked in Val's direction. "I think she wants to die."
Maybe you can help her after all," Mabry said. "You're good at helping people die.”
Holly Black, Valiant

Jojo Moyes
“You know, you can only actually help someone who wants to be helped.”
Jojo Moyes, Me Before You

Richelle E. Goodrich
“Kindness is a magical spell—performed by enlightened beings—meant to enchant hearts and lift weary souls that they might fly.”
Richelle E. Goodrich, Making Wishes

Steve Maraboli
“How would your life be different if...You didn’t wait for someone else to fix a problem or social issue? Let today be the day...You take up a cause that you feel in your heart and give your time and efforts towards that cause.”
Steve Maraboli, The Power of One

Will Advise
“And now, for something completely the same:

Wasted time and wasted breath,
's what I'll make, until my death.
Helping people 'd be as good,
but I wouldn't, if I could.

For the few that help deserve,
have no need, or not the nerve,
help from strangers to accept,
plus from mine a few have wept.

Wept from joy, or from despair,
or just from my vengeful stare.
Ways I have, to look at stupid,
make them see I am not Cupid.

Make them see they are in error,
for of truth I am a bearer.
Most decide I'm just a bear,
mauling at them, - like I care.”
Will Advise, Nothing is here...

“When we die, it's not the angels in heaven that need our help. It's the angels in hell.”
Anthony T.Hincks

“The more we realize our choices, the more we realize our power, and the more power we have.

We need to redefine what power and influence are. Power is not lording over people and forcing our will upon them. It's acting with love, attention, and with caring. In this way we can have tremendous impact not only on others but also on ourselves. We all have something that we can contribute. We all have value.

If there is even a chance that we can guide people through darkness and struggle, towards love and light, we have an obligation as human beings to do just that.

We need to cast aside our judgment, listen with an open mind and heart. We need to soften our clasp on everything we think we know, and be willing to grow and learn. We need to learn how to love another human unconditionally, as a human being and not for what they did or didn't do. We are not above or beneath anyone.

We are one of many and many of one.

There are no true separations, only those we ourselves create and believe.

I find that as we open to allow others to be, we also allow ourselves to be. As we get to know people, we also get to know ourselves better.

We lose ourselves in our hate. We find ourselves in our love.

If we pay attention, how we treat others, particularly how we treat those we dislike or disagree with, speaks volumes about who we are. It takes a lot of courage and patience to treat people everyone the same. Practicing doing so, teaches us how to be better people.

The more accepting we become, the more acceptable we are to ourselves.

The greatest intent, the greatest motivator, and goal which we can possibly have in life is to live with love. To put love into everything we do and say. Nothing will create a richer more meaningful life. Love is the ultimate power, healer and transformer.

The more you love yourself, the easier it will be to love others.

It all starts with you. You cannot love anyone or anything until you first learn to love yourself. You cannot expect to have a successful relationship until you have founded a loving, working relationship with yourself.

You have a choice in this world. You can harm or heal. Every choice has effect. Pour love into your intentions. Be a part of the solution, not the problem. Carry all hope in your heart and express it through love towards yourself and others.

Realize your choices, realize your power. Stand in you power. Act. Do. Be. Be love.”
Akiroq Brost

“If you want to reach a hand to your poor perishing fellow-sinners who are just sinking in the quicksands, you must have your own feet on the rock, for it is only by walking in God's ways that you can have firm standing-ground, whence you may reach downward, and give a helping-hand and a strong pull to those who are being engulfed in the quicksands of a perishing world.”
Stevenson A. Blackwood

“Helping others is a good effort to instill human dignity”
Gift Gugu Mona

“I'd rather spend my money on helping humanity than helping the super rich. It's about making the needy our priority as opposed to the greedy. Parsimonious conjecture is merely rhetorical babble.”
Jeffrey G. Duarte
