Happy Birthday to Me!

“With mirth and laughter let old wrinkles come.”
William Shakespeare

Embrace the Time You Have Here!

“Garden” by leventep

Life is full of beauty. Notice it. Notice the bumble bee, the small child, and the smiling faces. Smell the rain, and feel the wind. Live your life to the fullest potential, and fight for your dreams.
~ Ashley Smith

Or I Strangle You To Death; Either Way is Good.

A positive attitude may not solve all your problems, but it will annoy enough people to make it worth the effort.

**Herm Albright

True That

Gossip needn’t be false to be evil — there’s a lot of truth that shouldn’t be passed around.

~Frank A. Clark

Take Part in Your Own Faith

“To have faith in Divine protection is good, but even beter if backed by the pratical assistance heaven has a right to expect from sensible mortals.”

**Ellis Peters

How You Treat Them Shows How You View Yourself

“Goodness is about character – integrity, honesty, kindness, generosity, moral courage, and the like. More than anything else, it is about how we treat other people.”

**Dennis Prager

Make A Goal Worth Reaching

“We are at our very best, and we are happiest, when we are fully engaged in work we enjoy on the journey toward the goal we’ve established for ourselves. It gives meaning to our time off and comfort to our sleep. It makes everything else in life so wonderful, so worthwhile.”

**Earl Nightingale

I need a goal like that

“The best people renounce all for one goal, the eternal fame of mortals; but most people stuff themselves like cattle.”

**Heroclitus

Whatever you do, do it well

“If it falls to your lot to be a street sweeper, sweep streets like Michelangelo painted pictures, sweep streets like Beethoven composed music . . . Sweep streets like Shakespeare wrote poetry. Sweep streets so well that all the host of heaven and earth will have to pause and say: Here lived a great street sweeper who swept his job well.”

**Martin Luther King Jr.

Remember the Virtues

“People are often unreasonable and self-centered. Forgive them anyway.

If you are kind, people may accuse you of ulterior motives. Be kind anyway.

If you are honest, people may cheat you. Be honest anyway.

If you find happiness, people may be jealous. Be happy anyway.

The good you do today may be forgotten tomorrow. Do good anyway.

Give the world the best you have and it may never be enough. Give your best anyway.

For you see, in the end, it is between you and God. It was never between you and them anyway.”

**Mother Teresa
