I'll start:

To live content with small means; to seek elegance rather than luxury, and refinement rather than fashion; to be worthy, not respectable, and wealthy, not rich; to study hard, think quietly, talk gently, act frankly; to listen to stars and birds, babes and sages with open heart; to bear all cheerfully, do all bravely, await occasions, hurry never. In a word, to let the spiritual, unbidden and unconscious, grow up through the common. This is to be my symphony.
- William Henry Channing
Another one:

Those who dwell among the beauties and mysteries of the earth are never alone or weary of life.
~Rachel Carson

This too shall pass.

One of my favorite is a bit funny, but carries a huge amount of truth:

“Men occasionally stumble over the truth, but most of them pick themselves up and hurry off as if nothing ever happened” (Winston Churchill)
