Easy To Remember But Big Effect

Having had a few challenges in life, I always remember a few quotes when I'm feeling down or in trouble:

"Courage doesn’t always roar. Sometimes courage is that little voice at the end of the day that says: ‘I’ll try again tomorrow.’ “ (Anne Hunninghake)

"Most folks are about as happy as they make up their minds to be." (Abe Lincoln)

"Most people in this world are nice, if you give them a chance to be." (my friend Jim Glason)

So I have put several quotes on my bulletin board in my high school classroom, and hope they have an effect on my students. Here's some of them:

"Improve your appearance: smile!" (source?)

"Don't try to make a living. Try to make a difference" (Denzel Washington)

"It's hard to look beautiful when you're acting ugly." (source?)
