Have a heart that never hardens, a temper that never tires, and a touch that never hurts.

-Charles Dickens-

Be yourself. Especially do not feign affection. Neither be cynical about love, for in the face of all aridity and disenchantment, it is as perennial as the grassÖ With all its sham, drudgery, and broken dreams, it is still a beautiful world. Be cheerful. Strive to be happy.

-Max Ehrmann-

The secret of health for both mind and body is not to mourn for the past, nor to worry about the future, but to live the present moment wisely and earnestly.


You can walk freely upon life's spacious path, carpeted with flowers. You are free to traverse the world, making of your heart a torch to light your way.

There is nothing like a dream to create the future.

This above all: to thine own self be true,

And it must follow, as the night the day,

Thou canst not then be false to any man.
