My Favorite Quotes

You cannot control what happens to you, but you can control your attitude toward what happens to you, and in that, you will be mastering change rather than allowing it to master you.


Educate your children to self-control, to the habit of holding passion and prejudice and evil tendencies subject to an upright and reasoning will, and you have done much to abolish misery from their future and crimes from society.
Benjamin Franklin 


"Keep in mind that the true measure of an individual is how he treats a person who can do him absolutely no good."   


Watch your thoughts, they become words.

Watch your words, they become actions.

Watch your actions, they become habits.

Watch your habits, they become your character.

Watch your character, it becomes your destiny.


No act of kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted. 

  If you want others to be happy, practice compassion. If you want to be happy, practice compassion.

The Dalai Lama

    Take time for tender thoughts
    Ponder on poignant pastimes, pleasures

    Draw out your heart's dreams
    Give words to your heart's poetry
