Family Life

They... threw themselves into the interests of the rest, but each plowed his or her own furrow.
Their thoughts, their little passions and hopes and desires, all ran along separate lines.
Family life is like this - animated, but collateral.

New Beginnings

Every day is a new beginning. Treat it that way.
Stay away from what might have been,
and look at what can be.

- Marsha Petrie Sue

Don’t say you don’t have enough time.

You have exactly the same number of hours per day
that were given to Helen Keller, Pasteur, Michelangelo,
Mother Teresa, Leonardo da Vinci,
Thomas Jefferson, and
Albert Einstein.

Heaven is eternal - the earth endures.
Why do heaven and earth last forever?
They do not live for themselves only.
This is the secret of their durability.

For this reason the wise sage puts himself last
and so ends up ahead.
He stays a witness to life,
so he endures.

Serve the needs of others,
and all your own needs will be fulfilled.
Through selfless action, fulfillment is attained.
