Time is Nature's way of keeping everything
from happening all at once!
"You say, 'If I had a little more, I should be very satisfied.'
You make a mistake.
If you are not content with what you have,
you will not be satisfied if it were doubled."
Charles H. Spurgeon
"Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life.
It turns what we have into enough, and more.
It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home,
a stranger into a friend."

It's worth your time.
You give but little when you
give of your possessions.
It is when you give of yourself
that you truly give.
When the power of love,
overcomes the love of power,
the world shall know peace
Do not wish to be anything but what you are,
and be that perfectly.
St Francis of Assisi
"The whole secret of a successful life
is to find out what it is one's destiny to do,
and then do it."
Go confidently in the direction of your dreams.
Henry David Thoreau
I may not have gone where
I intended to go,
but I think I have ended up where
I needed to be.
You have to have an idea of
what you are going to do,
but it should be a vague idea.
For everything you have missed,
you have gained something else.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
Patience cures many an old complaint.
old Irish proverb
Wisdom has two parts:
1. Having a lot to say
2. Not saying it
Silence is often the Best Answer...
Smiling is often the Best Reaction...
Blessed are the Flexible,
for they shall not be bent out of shape.
old Finnish Proverb
Kindness is difficult to give away
because it keeps coming back.
A blind person asked St. Anthony:
"Can there be anything worse
than losing eye sight?"
He replied: "Yes, losing your vision!"

'Life may not be the party we hoped for...
but while we are here, we might as well dance!"
Some people come into our lives and quickly go;
Some people move our souls to dance;
they awaken us to new understanding
With the passing whisper of their wisdom;
Some people make the sky more beautiful to gaze upon
Friends share simple, ordinary times in our lives,
Moments that become memories that stay in our hearts forever
... And we will never, ever be the same.
"Every great dream begins with a dreamer.
you have within you the strength,
and the passion
to reach for the stars
to change the world. "
"I have never let my schooling interfere with my education."
~ Mark Twain
Whether you think you can....
Or think you can't...
YOU ARE RIGHT!
Most folks are as happy as
they make up their minds to be.
"Attitude is a little thing that makes a big difference."
"Nothing can stop the man with the right mental attitude
from achieving his goal;
nothing on earth can help the man
with the wrong mental attitude. "

but with extraordinary determination.
