I expect to pass through life but once. If therefore, there be any kindness I can show, or any good thing I can do to any fellow being, let me do it now, and not defer or neglect it, as I shall not pass this way again. —William Penn

When you finally recognize that truth, then you will understand the true meaning of forgiveness of yourself and others. From this point you will finally be free. —Shannon L. Alder
