Pay attention to what is good about your life. Rather than worrying about what you do not have, seek to make the best of all the good things you do have. There are a lot of things right with your life. Give your attention to them and they will grow. - Ralph S. Marston, Jr.
Every life form seems to strive to its maximum except human beings. How tall will a tree grow? As tall as it possibly can. Human beings, on the other hand, have been given the dignity of choice. You can choose to be all or you can choose to be less. Why not stretch up to the full measure of the challenge and see what all you can do? - Jim Rohn
Life understands that death brings with it change and that the only reality is to live both the future and the past in the present, accepting it with the joy of the moment and letting it go when the time is right; embracing it with all one’s energies before it leaves, but without expectations of permanency. - Leo Buscaglia
