”To laugh often and love much; to win the respect of intelligent persons and the affection of children, to earn the approbation of honest critics; to appreciate beauty; to give of one's self, to leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch or a redeemed social condition; to have played and laughed with enthusiasm and sung with exultation; to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived--that is to have succeeded.”
--Ralph Waldo Emerson
"Excellence can be attained if you care more than others think is wise, risk more than others think is safe, dream more than others think is practical, and expect more than others think is possible."

"Be content with what you have; rejoice in the way things are, When you realize there is nothing lacking the whole world belongs to you." - Tao Te Ching
User talk pages; Sami Bég
You might want to consider moving your quotes to your user page, User:Freedomskr , as that is where people typically collect their favorite quotes. User talk pages are provided by Wikiquote for communication between users.
Also, if you weren't already aware of this, I've posted some information about your former article on Sami Bég at Wikiquote talk:Votes for deletion#Deletion of Quotations for Wikiquote, in response to a question from an anonymous editor (who I thought was probably you, but one never knows). I hope you will find this information useful. ~ Jeff Q (talk) 23:58, 24 December 2006 (UTC)
