Life is like.....

Life is like the dice that, falling, still show a different face.
So life, though it remains the same, is always presenting different aspects.

True Family

The bond that links your true family is not one of blood, but of respect and joy in each other's life.
Rarely do members of one family grow up under the same roof.

Richard Bach

Nothing in the world can take the place of Persistence.

Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent.

Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb.

Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts.

Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent.

The slogan 'Press On' has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race.

Calvin Coolidge

A New Canvas

Each day is a new canvas to paint upon.
Make sure your picture is full of life and happiness,
and at the end of the day you don't look at it
and wish you had painted something different.

Author Unknown

At the end....

At the end of your life, you will never regret not having passed one more test, not winning one more verdict, or not closing one more deal. You will regret time not spent with a husband, a friend, a child, or a parent.
Barbara Bush

Each Morning.....

Each morning when I open my eyes I say to myself:
I, not events, have the power to make me happy or unhappy today.
I can choose which it shall be.
Yesterday is dead, tomorrow hasn't arrived yet.
I have just one day, today, and I'm going to be happy in it.

Groucho Marx

One Earth.....

Be firm like a rock, deep and serious like the sea.
Think of the Earth as a Mother. This is one Earth.
Don't be divided by thinking of yourself as belonging to different countries.
This is one Earth.

A Spark...

At times our own light goes out and is rekindled by a spark from another person.
Each of us has cause to think with deep gratitude of those who have lighted the flame within us.

Sing Your Song

"Find out what you really like if you can.
Find out what is really important to you.
Then sing your song.
You will have something to sing about and your whole heart will be in the singing."
