Anne Morrow Lindbergh:
When you love someone, you do not love him or her in exactly the same way, from moment to moment. It is an impossibility. And yet this is exactly what most of us demand. We have so little faith in the ebb and flow of life, of love, of relationships. We leap at the flow of the tide and resist in terror its ebb. We are afraid it will never return. We insist on permanency, on continuity, when the only continuity possible is in growth, in freedom, in the sense that the dancers are free, barely touching as they pass but partners in the same pattern. The only real security in a relationship lies neither in looking back in nostalgia, nor forward in dread or anticipation, but living in the present relationship and accepting it as it is now. —Gifts From the Sea(Pantheon)
People are often unreasonable, illogical, and self-centered. Forgive them anyway.
If you are kind, people may accuse you of selfish, ulterior motives. Be kind anyway.
If you are successful, you will win false friends and some true enemies. Succeed anyway.
If you are honest and frank, people may cheat you. Be honest and frank anyway.
What you spend years building someone could destroy overnight. Build anyway.
If you find serenity and happiness, they may be jealous. Be happy anyway.
The good you do today people will often forget tomorrow. Do good anyway.
Give the world the best you have, and it may never be enough. Give the world the best you’ve got anyway.
You see, in the final analysis, it is between you and God.
It was never between you and them anyway.
Kent M. Keith-Hawaii, Former President of Chaminade University
Always keep people in your life who charge your battery…not drain it!!!

The rules of a relationship are determined by the party of least concerned.
Don’t wrap your emotional life around the weaknesses of others-Covey
Be where you are. Otherwise you will miss your life.
And the day came when the wish to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.
The stuff that wears on your nerves polishes your soul.
If you can’t get out of it, you might as well get into it.
Be yourself. Everybody else is already taken.
Anyone who has never made a mistake has never tried anything new.
There are two ways to live life-one as if nothing is a miracle and one as if everything is.
Faith is believing when common sense tells you not to.
How we spend our day is, of course, how we spend our lives.
One does not discover new lands without consenting to lose sight of the shore for a very long time.
It is never too late to be what you might have been.
Life is either a daring adventure or nothing.
We only have this moment, sparkling like a star in our hand and melting like a snowflake.
Marie B. Ray
The woods would be very silent if no birds sang there except those who sang best.
