Chapter 6, Page 20, Book 15


Everyone has inside himself a piece of good news! The good news is that you really don't know how great you can be, how much you can love, what you can accomplish, and what your potential is!

Anne Frank

June 20 - GOOD NEWS

There is no end to the Good News inside you.

Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around.

Leo Buscaglia


The potential for greatness lies within us all and I’ve found that it’s impossible to reach your full potential if you’re not willing to change.  We need to commit to learning something new everyday. 

If you don't change your beliefs, your life will be like this forever. Is that good news?

W. Somerset Maugham
Some beliefs are worth keeping, but there are others that could be changed for the better.  It’s a wise person that knows which to keep and which to change.

The bad news: nothing is permanent. The good news: nothing is permanent.


Be grateful for your opportunities. Be grateful for right now! Being grateful invites even better things to come into your life. 

The good news is, that the bad news can be turned into good news when you change your attitude.



How far you go in life depends on your being tender with the young, compassionate with the aged, sympathetic with the striving and tolerant of the weak and strong. Because someday in your life you will have been all of these.

George Washington Carver

I like that thought with the benches, you just have to keep moving forward sometimes no matter how hard it is. It may be difficult but it is better than just not doing something and stagnating and sometimes then allowing bitterness and other unhealthy emotions to take over.

Great quotes and info today but the nice 'shocker into reality is':

The bad news: nothing is permanent. The good news: nothing is permanent.

So I say to myself, is that good or what? THANKS

These are all great quotes, but I especially like that by G.W. Carver. That last line's a zinger, isn't it?

Love the following words that sum up this post, "the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around."
