Men do not really live for honors or for pay; their gladness is not the taking and holding, but in doing, the striving, the building, the living. It is a higher joy to teach than to be taught. It is good to get justice, but better to do it; fun to have things but more to make them. The happy man is he who lives the life of love, not for the honors it may bring, but for the life itself. —R.J. Baughan
Carry good cheer in the morning;
Carry good cheer in the night.

If ever we walk in love's light. —G.B. Williams

Do it again. Play it again. Sing it again. Read it again. Write it again. Sketch it again. Rehearse it again. Run it again. Try it again.
Because again is practice, and practice is improvement. —Richelle E. Goodrich
Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.  —Mark Twain
Vitality shows in not only the ability to persist but the ability to start over. —F. Scott Fitzgerald
