Pass it on


I cannot believe that the purpose of life is to be happy. I think the purpose of life is to be useful, to be responsible, to be compassionate. It is, above all to matter, to count, to stand for something, to have made some difference that you lived at all. —Leo Rosten
I am not this hair, I am not this skin, I am the soul that lives within. —Jalal ad-Din Rumi
At the touch of love everyone becomes a poet. —Plato
For me, I am driven by two main philosophies: know more today about the world than I knew yesterday and lessen the suffering of others. You'd be surprised how far that gets you. —Neil deGrasse Tyson
Joy is a decision, a really brave one, about how you are going to respond to life. —Wess Stafford

Before you can live a part of you has to die. You have to let go of what could have been, how you should have acted and what you wish you would have said differently. You have to accept that you can’t change the past experiences, opinions of others at that moment in time or outcomes from their choices or yours. 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
I place a high moral value on the way people behave. I find it repellent to have a lot, and to behave with anything other than courtesy in the old sense of the word - politeness of the heart, a gentleness of the spirit. —Fran Lebowitz
