May love lead your eyes to look out for others,
may love lead your ears to listen to others,
may love lead your tongue to encourage others,
may love lead your hands to help others,
may love lead your mind to think of others,
may love lead your heart to feel for others,
and may love lead your soul to pray for others.
Love is sweeter than honey,
stronger than hate,
and greater than riches.
Hate is bitterer than herbs,
stronger than venom,
and deadlier than poison.
When love is planted in the mind,
beautiful ideas are thought.
When love is planted in the heart,
beautiful words are spoken.
When love is planted in the soul,
beautiful deeds are done.
Anything built on doubt is rocky.
Anything built on fear is shaky.
Anything built on hate is unsteady.
Anything built on wisdom is trustworthy.
Anything built on faith is sturdy.
Anything built on love is mighty.
Smile at someone,
and you have him for a second.
Wink at someone,
and you have him for a minute.
and you have him for an hour.
and you have him for a day.
and you have him for a lifetime.
Words speak to the mind,
kindness speaks to the heart,
but love speaks to the soul.
The secret to relationships is:
when you are wrong, admit it;
when you are right, be gracious;
and when you are uncertain, be quiet.
The rules of friendship are:
look beyond the imperfections of those you love,
never take advantage of those who love you,
and never let those you love take advantage of you.
Lust is mistaken for love.
Love is mistaken for weakness.
Hatred is mistaken for strength.
Anger has great strength,
but no brains.
Greed has many hands,
but no heart.
Fear has many titles,
but no honor.
Hate has many forms,
but no soul.
Your mind can see more than your eyes.
Your heart can carry more than your hands.
Your soul can go further than your feet.
With strength, you can move rocks.
With faith, you can move mountains.
With love, you can move the world.
Honesty is the gate to trust.
Hope is the doorway to faith.
Kindness is the entrance to love.
Open your eyes to opportunities.
Open your ears to wisdom.
Open your heart to virtue.
Open your soul to love.
Love has no eyes, but sees much;
has no ears, but hears much;
has no hands, but does much;
has no mind, but thinks much;
and has no heart, but feels much.
Love in your mind is strength.
Love in your heart is fortitude.
Love in your soul is influence.
Love in your life is power.
Love has many eyes to seek the lost,
many ears to hear the weeping,
many hands to uphold the poor,
and many feet to visit the sick.
It can leap over the highest mountain,
go around the widest fortress,
go under the deepest ocean,
and go through the thickest wall.
Eyes that see are many;
eyes that observe are few.
Ears that hear are plenty;
ears that listen are uncommon.
Hands that take are numerous;
hands that give are rare.
Tongues that wound are common;
tongues that heal are scarce.
Minds that think are ample;
minds that comprehend are scant.
Hearts that feel are abundant;
hearts that love are infrequent.
Train the ears to hear more.
Train the eyes to see more.
Train the hands to do more.
Train the feet to accomplish more.
Train the mind to think more.
Train the heart to feel more.
Train the soul to love more.
Depend on few.
People can hurt you,
but you can still love.
People can betray you,
but you can still trust.
People can put you down,
but you can still rise.
People can oppose you,
but you can still prevail.
If you place your heart in the hands of a fool, he will scar it.
If you place your heart in the hands of an abuser, he will shatter it.
If you place your heart in the hands of a saint, he will nourish it.
If you place your heart in the hands of God, He will bless it.
In times of adversity,
you know those who love you.
In times of prosperity,
you know those who love what you have.
Love knits people together;
the love of money tears them apart.
You can see a person without using your eyes,
hear a person without using your ears,
carry a person without using your hands,
speak to a person without using your mouth,
and move a person without using your feet.
Your ears hear much,
but your heart hears more.
Your eyes see much,
but your mind sees more.
Your tongue says much,
but your soul says more.
Your feet travel much,
but your imagination travels more.
Your hands do much,
but your mind does more.
Smile, even when others do not.
Care, even when others will not.
Love, even when others could not.
Give, even when others cannot.
You have beautiful ears if you listen to the plight of others,
beautiful hands if you carry the burdens of others,
beautiful eyes if you look out for others,
beautiful feet if you visit others,
a beautiful tongue if you encourage others,
a beautiful mind if you enlighten others,
a beautiful heart if you comfort others,
and a beautiful soul if you love others.
May your eyes be profitable,
may your ears be dutiful,
may your tongue be insightful,
and may your hands be successful.
May your mind be fruitful,
may your heart be blissful,
may your soul be joyful,
and may your life be peaceful.
