By John Wooden
For as the eyes of bats are to the blaze of day, so is the reason in our soul to the things which are by nature most evident of all.
The least initial deviation from the truth is multiplied later a thousand fold.
The whole is more than the sum of its parts.
Happiness depends upon ourselves.
Pleasure in the job puts perfection in the work.
Well begun is half done.
Look at how a single candle can both defy and define the darkness.
An empty day, though clear and bright, is just as dark as any night.
God has strewn our paths with wonders and we certainly should not go through life with our eyes shut.
When one door closes another door opens; but we so often look so long and so regretfully upon the closed door, that we do not see the ones which open for us.
Sometimes we stare so long at a door that is closing that we see too late the one that is open.
Be the optimist in the room.
Every day holds the possibility of a miracle.
Today’s a beautiful day, and yesterday was a beautiful day, so that means it’s a great life.
When you do something beautiful and nobody noticed, do not be sad. For the sun every morning is a beautiful spectacle and yet most of the audience still sleeps.
Every day alive in the ‘Power’ world is a beautiful day.
It’s a beautiful tale, and today is a beautiful day without any bugs.
It’s a beautiful day and I can’t stop myself from smiling.
When you see validation for a life’s work and dedication, it’s a beautiful day.
Give every day the chance to become the most beautiful day of your life.
