"Be so strong that nothing can disturb your peace of mind. Talk health, happiness, and prosperity to every person you meet. Make all your friends feel there is something special in them. Look at the sunny side of everything. Think only of the best, work only for the best, and expect only the best. Be as enthusiastic about the success of others as you are about your own. Forget the mistakes of the past and press on to the greater achievements of the future. Give everyone a smile. Spend so much time improving yourself that you have no time left to criticize others. Be too big for worry and too noble for anger."
To laugh often and much;
To win the respect of intelligent people and affection of children;
To earn the appreciation of honest critics
And endure the betrayal of false friends;
To appreciate beauty,
To find the best in others,
To leave the world a bit better,
Whether by a healthy child, a garden patch or a redeemed social condition;
To know even one life has breathed easier
Because you have lived,
This is to have succeeded.
By Ralph Waldo Emerson
"Catch you on the flip side"
"If you can't go up the front of the mountain, then go up the back"
"It is better to live one year as a tiger than 100 years as a sheep".
May the road rise to meet you.
May the wind always be at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face,
The rain fall soft upon your fields.
Until we meet again,
May you be held in the palm of God’s hand.
