Still are withered by the evening:
You can be me when I'm gone.

6:21p - On Growing Up -- Anonymous


As we grow up, we learn that even the one person that wasn't supposed to ever let you down probably will. You will have your heart broken probably more than once, and it's harder every time. You'll break hearts too, so remember how it felt when yours was broken. You'll fight with your best friend. You'll blame a new love for things an old one did. You'll cry because time is passing too fast, and you'll eventually lose someone you love. So take too many pictures, laugh too much, and love like you've never been hurt, because every sixty seconds you spend upset is a minute of happiness you'll never get back.

11:55p - A Guide to a Happy Life!


No one will ever get out of this world alive. Maintain a reasonable sense of values!

Remember "Character is Destiny!"

Good health is everyone's major source of wealth!

Resolve to be cheerful and helpful. People will repay you in kind!

Avoid angry, abrasive people. They are generally vengeful!

Avoid zealots. They are generally without humor!

Start off the day with a smile - read the comics first!

Strive to become the type of person your parents hoped for when you were small. Many do not turn out that way!

ALWAYS do the right thing and tell the truth. Your kids will tell the story of your life!

Listen more and talk less. No one ever learns anything by talking!

Resolve to be tender with the young, compassionate with the aged, sympathetic with the striving and tolerant of the weak and the wrong. Sometime in life you will have been all of these!

Do not equate money and power with success. Those who value money and power are often miserable failures as human beings. What matters most about success is how it is achieved!

Far better it is to dare mighty things...
