Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take but by the moments that take our breathe away!

Everyday you make progress, every step may be fruitfull, yet there will stretch out before you and ever lengthening, ever ascending, ever improving path. you know you will never get to the end of the journey; but thus so far from discouraging inly adds to the joy and glory of the climb!( winston churchill)

Sucess is the ability to go from one failure to another with no loss of enthusiasm

Freedom is not worth having if it does not include the freedom to make mistakes!

Being deeply loved by someone gives you strength, loving someone deeply gives you courage!

Don't allow the phone to interrupt important moments it is there for you convenience not the callers!

We come to love not by finding a perfect person but by learning to see an imperfect person perfectly!

The need for control and the addictive quest for dominance is a universal quest aimed at avoiding the inner void. Because of its scope, and because it forms the underpinnings of all unhealthy addictions, it has won itself the label as the master addiction-Philip Kavanaugh

Before our white brothers arrived to make us civilized men,
we didn't have any kind of prison. Because of this, we had no delinquents.
Without a prison, there can be no delinquents.
We had no locks nor keys and therefore among us there were no thieves.
When someone was so poor that he couldn't afford a horse, a tent or a blanket,
he would, in that case, receive it all as a gift.
We were too uncivilized to give great importance to private property.
We didn't know any kind of money and consequently, the value of a human being
was not determined by his wealth.
We had no written laws laid down, no lawyers, no politicians,
therefore we were not able to cheat and swindle one another.
We were really in bad shape before the white men arrived and I don't know
how to explain how we were able to manage without these fundamental things
that (so they tell us) are so necessary for a civilized society.

mythquester, thanks 4 ur above quote..got me thinking re...which society is more civilized...perhaps this could be another thread...

anyway, one of my fav quote is this:

For let him who wants to enjoy life and see good days, keep his tongue free from evil and his lips from guile. Let him turn away from from wickedness and shun it, and let him do right. Let him search for peace and seek it eagerly. New Testament 1Peter3:10-11

A variant on "It's better to have loved and lost than never to have loved at all" is

"It's better to have loved a short man than never to have loved a tall"

At the end of the day
all that matters is who
is in your life.....

What you think about
you bring about......

The only courage you need
is the courage to live the life
of your dream.....

When your heart
speaks listen.....

Love yourself
its the only
guarantee there is.....

Change your thoughts
change your world....

Freedom is
found in forgiveness....

Happiness is a choice.....

there is only the meaning we each give to our life,
an individual meaning, an individual plot,
like an individual novel, a book for each person."

This is the beginning of a new day.
You have been given this day to use as you will.
You can waste it or use it for good.
What you do today is important because you are exchanging a day of your life for it.
When tomorrow comes, this day will be gone forever, in its place is something that you have left behind....let it be something good.
