  1. The best one (to me) is the Roosevelt one.
    You’re not going to please everyone, and it’s up to you to decide if you’ll focus on the ones you don’t or the ones you do.

    It’s works well as a short synopsis of ever quote.

  2. Nice. Loved especially the quotes:3, 13 and 18.

    Love has to start from us and if we don’t love the “I” we see then really no amount of love from anyone will make up for that.
    Is just like the Love of Christ, if we do not accept it and receive it then we keep ourselves locked out of His Graceful plan to save and sanctify us unto Himself.

    And the 18, give grace to yourself. As much as you can scold yourself, know you are still work in progress. Be dutiful and committed but yet Relax! 😁
