"The purpose of life is not to be happy.
The purpose of life is to matter, to be productive,
to have it make some difference that you lived at all.
Happiness, in the ancient, noble verse, means 'Self-Fulfillment'
and is given to those who
use to the fullest
whatever talents God or luck or fate bestowed upon them"
Life's Journey is not to arrive at the grave safely in a well preserved body.
But rather to skid in sideways, totally worn out, shouting "HOLY SHIT... WHAT A RIDE!"
"The better part of one's life consists of his friendships."
Friendship isn't about who you have known the longest,
it's about those who came and never left your side.
Anticipate the difficult by managing the easy.
Life is like a roll of toilet paper.
The closer it gets to the end,
the faster it goes.
The happiest people don't necessarily have
the best of everything,
they just make the best of everything that they have.
Give to the world the best you have.
And the best will come back to you.
God grant me the senility to forget the people I never liked,
the good fortune to run into the ones I do,
and the eyesight to tell the difference!!!
"Random acts of kindness makes the
soul feel good.
Be generous with them.
Make your own corner of the world worth
and hope for the ripple effect."
Life should be a source of experience to be lived up to,
not just survived through.
The Racer's Prayer
Lord, I pray as I race today,
Keep me safe along the way.
Not only me, but the other drivers too,
As they perform the jobs they do.
I know God, that in every race,
I, the driver must set the pace.
Let not my desire for more speed,
Warp my judgement and turn into greed.
From green to checkered, guide me through.
Giving me strength to know what to do.
Remind me often in the race of life,
How to cope with all the strife.
Help me accept the wins I may receive,
And all the defeats, most graciously.
Ride with me, don't allow me to lag,
Guide me all the way to the checkered flag.
"Be kinder than necessary,
you meet is fighting some kind of battle."
Happiness Keeps You Sweet,
Trials Keep You Strong,
Sorrows Keep You Human,
Failures Keep You Humble,
Success Keeps You Glowing,
But Only God Keeps You Going!
The whole point of being alive is to evolve
into the complete person you were intended to be.
No trumpets sound when the important decisions of our lives are made.
Our destiny is made known silently.
Generosity is giving more than you can,
and pride is taking less than you need.
One nice thing about egotists...
they don't talk about other people.
Mistakes, obviously, show us what needs improving.
Without mistakes, how would we know what we had to work on?
Peter McWilliams, Life 101
Practice what you preach!
Count your blessings.
Once you realize how valuable you are and how much you have going for you,
the smiles will return, the sun will break out, the music will play,
and you will finally be able to move forward with the life that
God intended for you with grace, strength, courage, and confidence.
A man has to have a code, a way of life to live by.
Nobody can make you feel inferior without your permission.
Light travels faster than sound.
This is why some people appear bright until you hear them speak.
Nothing is foolproof to a sufficiently talented fool.
You don't stop laughing because you grow old,
You grow old because you stop laughing.
"To live life is to dream in black & white,
to enjoy life to the fullest is to live the dream in color."
Experience is the one thing you have left
when everything else is gone.
Watch your thoughts; they become words.
Watch your words; they become actions.
Watch your actions; they become habits.
Watch your habits; they become character.
Watch your character; it becomes your destiny.
Life isn't about how to survive the storm,
but how to dance in the rain.
If you want the rainbow, you gotta put up with the rain.
In each of us, two natures are at war - the good and evil.
All our lives the fight goes on between them, and one must conquer.
But in our own hands lies the power to choose -
what we want most to be we are.
exerpt from Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde
by Robert Louis Stevenson
'Life is not measured by the breaths we take,
but by the moments that take our breath away.'
"The greatest natural resourse in the world is not in the earth's
waters or minerals, nor in the forests or grasslands.
It is the spirit that resides in every unstoppable person.
And the spirit of the individual benefits us all.
Choose to be Unstoppable!"
The true measure of a persons character,
is not how many times they have been knocked down,
but in how many times they got back up.
"Give a child a flower and she will smile.
Give an older person a tree, and he will rest in its shade.
And if a child asks, he will tell tales and share memories before they fade.
Give children a field, and they will play.
Give people a park, and they will join in music and dance.
And if we just cherish that, a union of people and nature will blossom."
