“My great hope is to laugh as much as I cry; to get my work done and try to love somebody and have the courage to accept the love in return.”

~ Maya Angelou

“Bottom line is, I didn’t return to Apple to make a fortune. I have been very lucky in my life and already have one. When I was 25, my net worth was $100 million or so. I decided then that I wasn’t going to let it ruin my life. There’s no way you could ever spend it all, and I don’t view wealth as something that validates my intelligence.”

~ Steve Jobs

“I work very hard, but when God opens that door for you – when life opens that door for you, I should say – I think it’s important to be giving, to return the love back.”

~ Lady Gaga

“I’m no longer just a candidate. I’m the President. I know what it means to send young Americans into battle, for I have held in my arms the mothers and fathers of those who didn’t return.  I’ve  shared  the  pain  of  families who’ve  lost  their  homes,  and  the  frustration  of workers  who’ve  lost  their  jobs.”

~ President Barack Obama

“Mother  Earth  is  serving  us.  The  sun,  the  moon and  the  stars  all  serve  us.  What  can  we  do  in  return   for   their   selfless   service?”
~ Amma (Mata Amritanandamayi Devi)

“I returned to India after long years of international service, because I had always cherished the desire to make a difference in my own country.”

~ Shashi Tharoor

“It is an Englishman who turns out to be the real villain of ‘The Moonstone.’ By contrast, the three Indian priests who dedicate their lives to returning the jewel to its proper home in the temple, though they have nothing personal to gain by doing so, are positively heroic.”

~ Chitra Banerjee Divakaruni

“Introspection, or ‘sitting in the silence,’ is an unscientific way of trying to force apart the mind and senses, tied together by the life force. The contemplative mind, attempting its return to divinity, is constantly dragged back toward the senses by the life currents.”

~ Paramahansa Yogananda

“To the wider public, may I say that I have made many friends. I have been allowed to share your thoughts & dreams, your disappointments & your happiness. You have also given me an education. By teaching me more about life and living than any books or teachers could have done. My debt  of  gratitude to  you  all  is  immense.  I  hope,  in  some  way,  I  have  been  of  service  in  return.”

~ Princess Diana

“We cannot conceive of matter being formed of nothing, since things require a seed to start from… Therefore there is not anything which returns to nothing, but all things return dissolved  into  their  elements.”

~ William Shakespeare

“While we may have more still to endure, better days will return: we will be with our friends again; we will be with our families again; we will meet again. It’s worth remembering that it is often the small steps, not the giant leaps, that bring about the most lasting change. When life seems hard, the courageous do not lie down and accept defeat; instead, they are all the more determined to struggle for a better future.”

~ Queen Elizabeth the Second

“I like mathematics because it is not human and has nothing particular to do with this planet or with the whole accidental universe – because, like Spinoza’s God, it won’t love us in return.”

~ Bertrand Russell
