As I have posted before, I love quotes.  I love the turn of a phrase and the order of words. In one of my forays at a library book sale I purchased a small volume, "The Change-Your-Life Quote Book" compiled by Allen Klein.   Below are some of the ones that stood out to me:

"If you think you can do a thing or think you can't do a thing, you're right."  ~Henry Ford

"To be upset over what you don't have is to waste what you do have."  ~Ken Keyes, Jr.

"Count your blessings, not your crosses,  Count your gains, not your losses.  Count your joys instead of your woes, Count your friends instead of your foes.  Count your health, not your wealth."  ~Old Proverb

"Kindness is the language which the deaf can hear and the blind can see."  ~ Mark Twain

"Things turn out best for the people who make the best of the way things turn out." ~ John Wooden

"Never confuse a single defeat with a final defeat." ~ F. Scott Fitzgerald

"You miss 100% of the shots you don't take."  ~Wayne Gretzky

"You have it easily in your power to increase the sum total of this world's happiness now.  How? By giving a few words of sincere appreciation to someone who is lonely or discouraged.  Perhaps you will forget tomorrow the kind words you say today, but the recipient may cherish them over a lifetime."  ~ Dale Carnegie

What words of encouragement or appreciation can you bestow on someone today?
