- Don't be afraid to go out on a limb. That's where the fruit is. Just don't break a limb doing it!

- Aerodynamically the bumblebee shouldn't be able to fly, but the bumblebee doesn't know that so it goes on flying anyway. Turn the unknown into a blessing.
- Risk it. You can't steal second and keep your foot on first. But the guy at third is keeping an eye on you!
- Today's mighty oak is yesterday's little acorn that stood it's ground. Hang in there. Rain and fertilizer is what made the mighty oak strong!
- The optimist says the glass is half full. The pessimist says the glass is half empty. The pragmatist, being thirsty, drinks the water. Pragmatists are never thirsty!
- Getting over a bad experience is much like crossing monkey bars. You have to let go at some point in order to move forward.
- The optimist says, "My cup runneth over, what a blessing." The pessimist says, "My cup runneth over, what a mess." Bless your mess!

- In the long run the pessimist may be right, but the optimist has a better time on the trip.

- Put your nose to the grindstone and your shoulder to the wheel and you'll either get polished up or a pointed nose and round shoulders.

- The game of life is not so much in holding a good hand, as it is in playing a poor hand well. Learn when to play and when to fold!
- A person who trims himself to suit everybody will soon whittle away to nothing. When you get to the size you like, just be yourself!
- When you get to the end of your rope, tie a knot and hang on tight!
- Happiness often sneaks in a door you didn't know you left open. Leave your doors open.
- Encouragement is like premium gas. It helps take the knocks out of living. May life's journey be smooth.
- An optimist laughs to forget. A pessimist forgets to laugh.
- Success comes in cans. Failure comes in can'ts. Knock those "t"s off!
- The optimist sees the rose and not its thorns. The pessimist stares at the thorns, oblivious to the rose. Smell the rose but watch for thorns... and bees!
- There is always something to be thankful for. When you cannot pay your bills, be thankful you are not one of your creditors.
- A cloudy day is no match for a sunny disposition. Smile even on cloudy days!
- What soap is for the body, tears are for the soul. An occasional cleansing is needed but don't become a prune!
