"Don't be a jerk. Try to love everyone. Give more than you take. And do it despite the fact that you only really like about seven out of 500 people." — Judd Apatow (read this on a bag from Chipotle, who knew such wisdom could be found while eating a burrito bowl?)

"I am extraordinarily patient, provided I get my way in the end." — Margaret Thatcher (Not the best attitude/approach in life, but it made me laugh!) 

"Because Christ’s eyes were unfailingly fixed on the future, He could endure all that was required of Him...How could He do this? How could He believe it? Because He knows that for the faithful, things will be made right soon enough. He is a King; He speaks for the crown; He knows what can be promised. He knows that 'the Lord … will be a refuge for the oppressed, a refuge in times of trouble. … For the needy shall not alway[s] be forgotten: the expectation of the poor shall not perish for ever.' He knows that 'the Lord is nigh unto them that are of a broken heart; and saveth such as be of a contrite spirit.' He knows that 'the Lord redeemeth the soul of his servants: and none of them that trust in him shall be desolate.' " — Elder Jeffrey R.

"Every single day, do something that makes your heart sing." — Marcia Wieder

"If I had a flower for every time I thought of you, I could walk in my garden forever." — Sir Alfred Lord Tennyson

"If we had just met...I would have asked for your number and I wouldn't have been able to wait even twenty four hours before calling you up and asking you, 'Hey, how's about some coffee or drinks or dinner or a movie...for as long as we both shall live?" — Joe Fox (Tom Hanks), "You've Got Mail" (we all know I think Nora Ephron is a genius//the clip here)

"As opportunity for change reaches into our lives, as it always will, we must ask: 'Where do I need development?', 'What do I want out of life?', 'Where do I want to go?', and 'How can I get there?' " — Elder Marvin J. Ashton, October 1979, "Progress Through Change"

"As we extend our hands and hearts toward others in Christlike love, something wonderful happens to us. Our own spirits become healed, more refined, and stronger." — President Dieter F. Uchtdorf, April 2010, "You Are My Hands"
