New Positive Thoughts
"Don't wait. The time will never be just right." Napoleon Hill

"We need to promote greater tolerance and understanding among the peoples of the world. Nothing can be more dangerous to our efforts to build peace and development than a world divided along religious, ethnic or cultural lines. In each nation, and among all nations, we must work to promote unity based on our shared humanity."
Kofi Annan

"I'm not saying that leisure is a no-no. In fact, everyone should take time out once in a while to recharge and revitalize their energy. The key is to have a balanced life. Set aside a fraction of your time to carry out your dreams and ambitions."
Michael Lee

"Take chances, make mistakes. That's how you grow. Pain nourishes your courage. You have to fail in order to practice being brave.
Mary Tyler Moore

"The negative parts of our past have served their part-and it's an ideal opportunity get rid of all of them so that we may move forward with a positive idea of living life."
Adam Green

"Each day is a new life. Each moment is really a new life. What we call memories are really present thoughts. What we call anticipations are really present thoughts. No one has ever lived in any moment except the present."
Emmet Fox

"You are never given a wish without also being given the power to make it come true. You may have to work for it, however."
Richard Bach

"In the hope of reaching the moon men fail to see the flowers that blossom at their feet."
Albert Schweitzer

"Time is not going to stop so that you can focus on what went wrong. Life is not going to sit by and wait for you while you pout about your failures. Life is going to keep on going and that is exactly what you have to do as well."
Steve Williams

"People of mediocre ability sometimes achieve outstanding success because they don't know when to quit. Most men succeed because they are determined to."
George Allen

"Not to know is bad; not to wish to know is worse."
African Proverb

"Don't worry about genius. Don't worry about being clever. Trust to hard work, perseverance and determination. And the best motto for a long march is: 'Don't grumble. Plug on!'"
Sir Thomas Treves

"No, the thing that makes for greatness is determination, persisting in the right direction over the long haul, following your dream, staying at the task."
Charles R. Swindoll

"Successful living does not mean accumulating material things, it means inner peace of mind; it means that gift of being able to adjust oneself to everyone else; it also means that all your needs for daily living will be taken care of by God."
Albert E. Cliffe

"Learn from yesterday, live for today, hope for tomorrow."
Albert Einstein

"Life just becomes more pleasant when you have a positive point of view."
Rohen Phoenix

"It is a common belief that making changes in your life is difficult and that life in general is quite a challenge. I've come to see that whatever we choose to believe about life becomes our own self-fulfilling prophecy."
Beau Norton

"The most dangerous leadership myth is that leaders are born - that there is a genetic factor to leadership. This myth asserts that people simply either have certain charismatic qualities or not. That's nonsense; in fact, the opposite is true. Leaders are made rather than born."
Warren G. Bennis

As far as I'm concerned, with all the inexpensive yet beautiful options out there for nearly anything you could want to buy, there's no excuse for not buying things that serve both form and function."
Taylor Haskins

"Christmas can be a maze of commercialism if we let it. Instead, let's make it a moment of clarity in which we view our sometimes confusing and threatening world against the back drop of God's gift to us: the Prince of Peace who was announced by angels on that original 'midnight clear'."
David Jeremiah

"Empathy is an important and valuable skill to have in many aspects in life. Not only does it contribute to strong bonds and general trust, but it allows us to gain insight of the emotions and thoughts of other people. In a sense, it offers you a chance to experience life the way someone else does."
Tuan Luu

"It is literally true, as the thankless say, that they have nothing to be thankful for. He who sits by the fire, thankless for the fire, is just as if he had no fire. Nothing is possessed save in appreciation, of which thankfulness is the indispensable ingredient. But a thankful heart hath a continual feast."
W.J. Cameron

Our Thought
One of our favorite motivational quotes comes from Robert Rivers. And our site is based on his words of wisdom:
"No person is a pillar of strength and wisdom unto themselves. Each of us need support through our lives even if only for a few minutes, or on a few occasions."
We hope this site, Words of Wisdom, provide you with positive thoughts that add a bit of inspiration and motivation for your day. No matter what you are going through at this point in your life, someone else has faced it before. We hope you find wisdom in these messages and from the experience of others.
