"To my young friends out there:

Life can be great, but not when you can't see it.

So, open your eyes to life: to see it in the vivid colors

that God gave us as a precious gift to His children,

to enjoy life to the fullest, and to make it count.

Say yes to your life."

Nancy Reagan

"What's great about this country is that

America started the tradition where the

richest consumers buy essentially the same

things as the poorest. You can be watching

TV and see Coca-Cola, and you can know

that the President drinks Coke. Liz Taylor

drinks Coke, and just think, you can

drink Coke, too."

Keep moving forward."

Robert H. Schuller

There was something about this quote that didn't

sit right with me but I was busy and moved on. -

But I couldn't forget it, so couldn't get past it. -

The problem with it is the word 'attempt.'

Attempt means 'to try' - and trying means

to 'not do' - 'not doing' is not good enough

for doing something great, or even small.

So I'll change this quote to my own way of thinking:

"If you knew you absolutely could not

fail, what great thing would you do?"

"I've also seen that great men are often lonely.

This is understandable, because they have built

such high standards for themselves that they

often feel alone. But that same loneliness is

part of their ability to create."

People who
repeatedly attack
your confidence
and self-esteem
are quite aware of
your potential,

"I love you without knowing how, or when, or from where. I love you simply, without problems or pride. I love you in this way because I do not know any other way of loving but this, in which there is no I or you, so intimate that your hand upon my chest is my hand, so intimate that when I fall asleep your eyes close."

"It’s dark because you are trying too hard. Lightly child, lightly. Learn to do everything lightly. Yes, feel lightly even though you’re feeling deeply. Just lightly let things happen and lightly cope with them. I was so preposterously serious in those days… Lightly, lightly – it’s the best advice ever given me…So throw away your baggage and go forward. There are quicksands all about you, sucking at your feet, trying to suck you down into fear and self-pity and despair. That’s why you must walk so lightly.”
- Aldous Huxley
