If you have it to give, give it! If you know what to say, say it! If you know what needs to be done, do it! If there is some place you want to go, go now! If there is something you want to do, do it! What are you waiting for? Haven't you figured out yet that you are the only one who can do what you do, the way you do it? Don't you realize that the world is waiting for you? (Iyanla Vanzant, Faith in the Valley, p. 186)

...there are a few things you want to remember - 1. It's not your issue.2. Don't get stuck in other people's stuff.3. When people get tired of suffering and struggling, they stop. (Iyanla Vanzant, Faith in the Valley, p. 178)

Sometimes standing for what is good and true and right for you is often a lonely stand. (Susan Smith Jones, Choose to Live Each Day Fully, Day 147)

If we are unsure of a particular course of action, it is best not to go rushing into it. (Food For Thought, 22 May)

Almost every effort of the human mind is directed, not toward lightening the work of the laborer, but toward making more pleasant the idleness of the leisured. (Leo Tolstoy, A Calendar of Wisdom, 9 June)

You don't have to give up your power to problems. You can take your focus off your problems and direct it to your life, trusting that doing so will bring you closer to a solution. (Melody Beattie, The Language of Letting Go, 18 May)
