Inspirational quotes/essays/poems/pictures - Got any good ones?

I want to make a personalised book for my sister as a gift, sort of a Scrapbook Of Happy. She's had a rough few years and so i'd like the focus of the book to be inspirational, something to cheer her up or provide strength when things are tough.
Do you have any good essays, quotes, song lyrics, pictures, poems, etc that might be a good fit? As well as 'Things are shite, they will get better!' style stuff, i'd love suggestions for things in the live in the moment/work to be happy/etc line. (She's very fond of those)
If any were particularly geared towards the relationship between sisters, that would also be fantastic.
All suggestions very welcomed, whether they be common, obscure, shallow or profound.
(Alternately, links to any particularly ridiculous cat photos. Who isn't cheered by those?)
