From the world's most enduring pop star:

Cher wrote:If grass can grow through cement, love can find you at every time in your life.
Cher wrote:The problem with some women is that they get all excited about nothing, and then they marry him.
Some of my recent favourites:

Dale Carnegie wrote:Develop success from failures. Discouragement and failure are two of the surest steppingstones to success.
Thomas A. Edison wrote:Our greatest weakness lies in giving up. The most certain way to succeed is always to try just one more time.
Jeannette Walls wrote:The scar meant that I was stronger than what had tried to hurt me.
James Baldwin wrote:People who believe that they are strong-willed and the masters of their destiny can only continue to believe this by becoming specialists in self-deception. Their decisions are not really decisions at all – a real decision makes one humble, one knows that it is at the mercy of more things than can be named – but elaborate systems of evasion, of illusion, designed to make themselves and the world appear to be what they and the world are not.

James Baldwin wrote:You ought to have some apprehension that the man you see before you was once even younger than you are now and arrived at his present wretchedness by imperceptible degrees.

A few I came across this year:

Jenifer Lewis wrote:Love yourself, so that love will not be a stranger when it comes, and it will come.
James Baldwin wrote:You think your pain and your heartbreak are unprecedented in the history of the world, but then you read.
Confucius wrote:The man who moves a mountain begins by carrying away small stones.
