"To put the world in order, we must first put the nation in order; to put the nation in order, we must put the family in order; to put the family in order, we must cultivate our personal life; and to cultivate our personal life, we must first set our hearts right." - Confucian teaching

"Keep your head above the clouds and your feet firmly planted on the ground — then move step by step." - Unknown

"As the French proverb goes, you can't make an omelet without breaking eggs. To me, those broken eggs mean sacrifice. To create an egg dish — or a business success – you must give up a great deal: time with family and friends, sleep, and episodes of 'Modern Family.' But at the end you have something worthwhile, a degree that will make a difference for you, your family and your future." - Martha Stewart

"Don't just climb the ladder of success — a ladder that leads, after all, to higher and higher levels of stress and burnout — but chart a new path to success, remaking it in a way that includes not just the conventional metrics of money and power, but a third metric that includes well-being, wisdom, wonder and giving, so that the goal is not just to succeed but to thrive." - Arianna Huffington

"Imagine that you have an invisible thread in your hand, and you will be holding it all your life. This thread is your lifeline. It leads where you need to go for your greatest fulfillment, not where your mind, your fear, your expectations, and your insecurity tell you to go. In India the thread is called Dharma, which derives from a root that means 'to uphold.' In other words, the invisible thread, fragile as it looks, is guiding you in the best possible direction. But being invisible, it guides you in unexpected ways – out of seeming uncertainty, there is hidden wisdom." - Deepak Chopra
