St. Francis de Sales in Wikipedia
Do not wish to be anything but what you are, and try to be that perfectly.
St. Francis de Sales
Nothing is so strong as gentleness, nothing so gentle as real strength
Be who you are and be that well.
Do not lose courage in considering your own imperfections.
Those who love to be feared fear to be loved, and they themselves are more afraid than anyone, for whereas other men fear only them, they fear everyone.
Everything went beautifully. A very good day.
To live for results would be to sentence myself to continuous frustration. My only sure reward is in my actions and not from them.
Life is 10% of what happens to me and 90% of how I react to it.
