"How we spend our days is how we spend our lives."
"Worry does not empty tomorrow of its sorrow. It empties today of its strength."

"Donít waste a minute being unhappy. If one window closes - run to the next window - or break down a door."
"Never be afraid to dream; be afraid not to. Never be afraid to live; be afraid not to. Never be afraid to love; be afraid not to. Never be afraid to laugh; be afraid not to. Youíre ALIVE, Live it that way."

I came across an informal write-up about a difficult good-bye between an elder mother and her daughter in an airport. The mother said to her daughter, "I love you, I wish you enough." The daughter responded, "Mom, our life together has been more than enough. Your love is all I ever needed. I wish you enough, too, Mom." This poem had been passed down through their family:
"I wish you enough sun to keep your attitude bright.
I wish you enough rain to appreciate the sun more.
I wish you enough happiness to keep your spirit alive.
I wish you enough pain so that the smallest joys in life appear much bigger.
I wish you enough gain to satisfy your wanting.
I wish you enough loss to appreciate all that you possess.
I wish enough "Helloís" to get you through the final "Good-bye.."
