The challenge of every day is to establish some relationship between what you want from life and your Daily Planner.

The rich and poor are but different ventricles of the same heart of humanity.

Never apologize for showing feeling, my friend.

Benjamin Disraeli

Benjamin Disraeli was a towering figure of British politics during the second half of the 19th century. He served twice as prime minister of the United Kingdom, formed a close working relationship with Queen Victoria, and became a powerful voice on the global political scene in a time when the British Empire was still expanding. He also found time to write novels, even when serving as prime minister. His most autobiographical novel, “Contarini Fleming,” was published anonymously in 1832. One of its central themes is the author’s choice between following a literary or a political career — as it turned out, Disraeli did both. In the book, Disraeli offers this pearl of wisdom: “Never apologize for showing feeling, my friend. Remember that when you do so, you apologize for truth.”

In childhood we press our nose to the pane, looking out. In memories of childhood we press our nose to the pane, looking in.

It's the simple things in life that are the most extraordinary.

Paulo Coelho

Paulo Coelho’s novel “The Alchemist” follows a young Andalusian shepherd on a journey to the Egyptian pyramids, where he believes he will find hidden treasure. These words are spoken by an old wise woman who warns him to not get carried away. Indeed, the shepherd sees and experiences many things on his journey, but the ones that affect him most are the simplest: falling in love, meeting a mentor, and discovering what home means to him. Coelho’s story serves as a lesson to us not to discount the smaller or less elaborate wonders of life: The fulfillment we get from them may surprise us.

I get this one - saw a video of a young hawk in a tree who was afraid to fly. He would test his wings and get back on the limb for safety.


You’ve got to jump off the cliff all the time and build your wings on the way down.

Ray Bradbury

Speculative fiction author Ray Bradbury blended the sci-fi, fantasy, horror, and mystery genres to craft stories about alien worlds, dystopian futures, and fantastical coming-of-age journeys. The author was fond of this exhilarating metaphor, using it often in speeches and interviews to emphasize his belief in the endless possibilities of the imagination. His words serve as an emphatic directive to stretch our minds, follow our hearts, and be willing to take a leap of faith in order to achieve our goals. In a 2010 interview, Bradbury was asked if his philosophy had ever failed him. He responded, “All of my life, I’ve jumped off the cliff and built my wings. It works every single time. It never fails.”

"Enough" is a feast.

Buddhist proverb

This Buddhist proverb emphasizes the idea that contentment and satisfaction come from appreciating what we already have, and not always seeking more. Buddhism adheres closely to the concept that desiring more than what we have causes suffering. It instead emphasizes nonattachment, which suggests that we should not cling to material possessions or experiences, as these things are often out of our control, and the constant longing for them can lead to dissatisfaction. Instead, we should aim to cultivate inner peace and contentment through acceptance and gratitude for what we already have.

Too many of us are not living our dreams because we are living our fears.

Les Brown

If you have dreams that feel just out of reach because fear keeps you from chasing after them, you’re not alone. As motivational speaker Les Brown warns with this quote, too many of us allow caution to limit our aspirations and potential. Instead of going after what we truly want, we let the fearful whispers of failure hold us back. But that nagging question — “What happens if I don’t make it?” — isn’t as scary as another question: “What happens if I don’t try?”

I will make my life. I will carve it with care.

Dolores del Río

Dolores del Río was born into one of the wealthiest families in Mexico, yet rather than remain in her home country, she chose to move to the U.S. and become an actress. She was featured in a number of successful movies in the late 1920s, including “Resurrection,” “Ramona,” and “Evangeline.” She became a queen of the silent film era and the first major female Latin American movie star. Irish playwright George Bernard Shaw once said, “The two most beautiful things in the world are the Taj Mahal and Dolores del Río.” Her Hollywood career began to fade by the early 1940s and she returned to Mexico, where she continued her influence as a leading star of the golden age of Mexican cinema.

Happiness quite unshared can scarcely be called happiness — it has no taste.

Charlotte Brontë

The friendship between writer Charlotte Brontë and publisher W.S. Williams began with false pretenses and a rejection letter. During their early correspondence, Brontë posed as a man named Currer Bell. Six publishing houses, including Williams' firm, Smith, Elder & Co., declined to print Bell's first novel, “The Professor.” However, Brontë reflected that Williams gave her much-needed “encouragement to persevere as an author,” and in October 1847, the firm published her pseudonymous masterpiece “Jane Eyre.” Several months later, Brontë revealed her true identity to Williams. Instead of being scandalized, he invited her to meet his wife and children, and began sending her books. Brontë received one of these packages in March 1850, when she was living alone with her father after having lost her mother and three siblings. While acknowledging the gift, she included this quote in her reply to Williams, reflecting that joy is always more palpable when loved ones can join in it.
