Series of quotes - Which is your favorite?

I've been compiling a bunch of quotes from old journals. Here are a few of my favorites:

"Always be a first-rate version of yourself, instead of a second-rate version of somebody else." - Judy Garland

"It is no special blessing to come to the end of life with love unshared, selves ungiven, activities unactivated, deeds undone, emotions unextended." - Reuben Welch

"We want to save ourselves and keep ourselves and hold ourselves back as though the highest goal in life would be to look good in our caskets." - Reuben Welch

"Honesty makes us real in a world of pretend." - Anonymous

"What is life? It is a flash of a firefly in the night. It is the breath of a buffalo in the wintertime. It is as the little shadow that runs across the grass and loses itself in the sunset." - Chief Crowfoot

"We cannot do everything at once, but we can do something at once." - Calvin Coolidge

"Joy is the heart's harmonius response to the Lord's song of love." - AW Tozer

"Faith makes all things possible. Hope makes all things bright. Love makes all things easy." - Anonymous

"Life shrinks or expands in proportion to one's courage." - Anais Nin

"One may walk over the highest mountain one step at a time." - John Wanamaker

"Never fear shadows. They simply mean there's a light shining somewhere." - Ruth Renkel

"Hope is the thing with feathers
That perches in the soul.
And sings the tune
Without the words,
and never stops at all. " - Dickinson

"Be not the slave of your own past. Plunge into the sublime seas, dive deep and swim far, so you shall come back with self-respect, with new power, with an advanced experience that shall explain and overlook the old." - Ralph Waldo Emerson (this one has been very important lately)

Leave me a comment explaining which one you like best (and why, if applicable).
