In prosperity our friends know us;
In adversity we know our friends.
~John C. Collins~
Wisdom is the reward you get for a lifetime of
listening when you would have preferred to talk.
Look at everything as though you were seeing it either
for the first or last time.
Then your time on earth will be filled with glory.
One who gives happiness cannot give sorrow.
One who gives sorrow, cannot give happiness.
Where there is happiness there cannot be sorrow.
A knife wound heals;
A wound caused by words does not.
You are not only responsible for what you say,
but also for what you do not say.
Life is overflowing with the new.
But it is necessary to empty out the old
to make room for the new to enter.
The soul would have no rainbow,
had the eyes no tears.
~Jon Vance Cheney~
Live your life like a fried egg
-- with your sunny side up.
"I learned that courage was not the absence of fear, but the
Triumph over it. The brave man is not he who does not feel
Afraid, but he who conquers that fear."
Success means having the courage, the determination, and
the will to become the person you believe you were meant to be.
The only fool bigger than the person who knows it
all is the person who argues with him.
~Stanislaw Jerszy Lec~
