  1. Limitless
    Poet: Ella Wheeler Wilcox

    There is nothing, I hold, in the way of work
    That a human being may not achieve
    If he does not falter, or shrink or shirk,
    And more than all, if he will believe.

    Believe in himself and the power behind
    That stands like an aid on a dual ground,
    With hope for the spirit and oil for the wound,
    Ready to strengthen the arm or mind.

    When the motive is right and the will is strong
    There are no limits to human power;
    For that great force back of us moves along
    And takes us with it, in trial's hour.

    And whatever the height you yearn to climb,
    Tho' it never was trod by the foot of man,
    And no matter how steep — I say you can,
    If you will be patient — and use your time.

  2. Pursue Your Dreams
    Poet: Julie Hebert, 2011

    I've always known,
    How great you are.
    I just didn't realize,
    How bizarre you are.

    I say this in,
    A very good way,
    You're so creative,
    I have to say.

    You have potential,
    To pursue your dreams.
    Now get out there,
    And explore your schemes.

    Until you try,
    You'll never know.
    Life's too short,
    To not control your show!

  3. Positive Poems to inspire you
    We all have dreams and aspirations. But, many people do not follow their dreams, they stay in jobs they hate, they never reach their full potential because they do not pursue their dreams. The Poet is trying to encourage you to go after dreams, to make them a reality! Don't wait until it is to late. Do not be one of those people who say, I wonder what would have happened if I had . . .

  4. The Things That Haven't Been Done Before
    Poet Edgar A. Guest

    The things that haven't been done before,
    Those are the things to try;
    Columbus dreamed of an unknown shore
    At the rim of the far-flung sky,
    And his heart was bold and his faith was strong
    As he ventured in dangers new,
    And he paid no heed to the jeering throng
    Or the fears of the doubting crew.

    The many will follow the beaten track
    With guideposts on the way.
    They live and have lived for ages back
    With a chart for every day.
    Someone has told them it's safe to go
    On the road he has traveled o'er,
    And all that they ever strive to know
    Are the things that were known before.

    A few strike out without map or chart,
    Where never a man has been,
    From the beaten path they draw apart
    To see what no man has seen.
    There are deeds they hunger alone to do;
    Though battered and bruised and sore,
    They blaze the path for the many, who
    Do nothing not done before.

    The things that haven't been done before
    Are the tasks worthwhile today;
    Are you one of the flock that follows, or
    Are you one that shall lead the way?
    Are you one of the timid souls that quail
    At the jeers of a doubting crew,
    Or dare you, whether you win or fail,
    Strike out for a goal that's new?

  5. Positive Quotes to remind you to - Think positively.

  6. Self-Control
    Poet Unknown

    When you’re angry,
    Here’s a rule:
    Take a deep breath
    Until you cool.
    Stop and freeze.
    Just calm down.
    Put on a smile
    Instead of a frown.
    Think of a way
    Not to fight.
    You’ll be glad
    You did it right.
    Stop! Calm down! Think!
    Then act!
    You’ll feel better.
    That’s a fact.

  7. Only A Little
    Poet Unknown

    Just a little smile will cheer us
    When life’s hill is very steep;
    Just a kindly word will help us
    When a frown would make us weep.

    Just the sunshine on the waters,
    Just the rainbow in the sky,
    Just a little love, so little,
    And its value is so high.

  8. The Dreams Ahead
    Poet: Edwin Carlile Litsey

    What would we do in this world of ours.
    Were it not for the dreams ahead?
    For thorns are mixed with the blooming flowers.
    No matter which path we tread.

    And each of us has his golden goal.
    Stretching far into the years;
    And ever he climbs with a hopeful soul.
    With alternate smiles and tears.

    That dream ahead is what holds him up
    Through the storms of a ceaseless fight:
    When his lips are pressed to the wormwood's cup.
    And clouds shut out the light.

    To some it's a dream of high estate
    To some it's a dream of wealth;
    To some it's a dream of a truce with Fate
    In a constant search for health.

    To some it s a dream of home and wife;
    To some it's a crown above;
    The dreams ahead are what make each life -
    The dreams - and faith - and love!
