"Paint a portrait of life to be proud of that could not be
sold for all the money on earth. Hang that portrait in
your mind and understand its ever presence. Reflect on
every brush stroke that makes all the mountains and
valleys and rivers and skies the most beautiful in the land.
Share your portrait with others but beware their brushes.
Select only those whose brush will add to the beauty
and structure of your masterpiece."

- Chris Ensor -

There is a bank that credits your account each morning with $86,400. It carries over no balance from day to day. Every evening deletes whatever part of the balance you failed to use. What would you do? Draw out ALL OF IT, of course!!!!

Each of us has such a bank. Its name is TIME.
Every morning, it credits you with 86,400 seconds. 
Every night it writes off, as lost, whatever of this you
have failed to invest to good purpose.  It carries over
no balance. It allows no overdraft.

Each day it opens a new account for you. Each night it burns the remains of the day. If you fail to use the day's deposits, the loss is yours.

There is no going back. There is no drawing against the "tomorrow." You must live in the present on today's deposits. Invest it so as to get from it the utmost in health, happiness, and success! The clock is running. Make the most of today.

To realize the value of ONE YEAR,
ask a student who failed a grade.

To realize the value of ONE MONTH,
ask a mother who gave birth to a premature baby.

To realize the value of ONE WEEK,
ask the editor of a weekly newspaper.

To realize the value of ONE HOUR,
ask the lovers who are waiting to meet.

To realize the value of ONE MINUTE,
ask a person who missed the train.

To realize the value of ONE-SECOND,
ask a person who just avoided an accident.

To realize the value of ONE MILLISECOND,
ask the person who won a silver medal in the Olympics.

Treasure every moment that you have! And treasure it
more because you shared it with someone special,
special enough to spend your time.

And remember that time waits for no one.
Yesterday is history. Tomorrow is a mystery.
Today is a gift. That's why it's called the present!!!

Friends are a very rare jewel, indeed.
They make you smile and encourage you to succeed.
They lend an ear, they share a word of praise,
and they always want to open their heart to us.

"Treat your friends as you do your pictures,
and place them in their best light."

Jennie Jerome Churchill

Some from Ram Dass

Awareness doesn't reside in the brain in resides everywhere.
Emptiness is not really empty, it's full of everything unmanifested, phenomena arise and dissolve, the totality includes it all.
Everything is present at the same time.
Creativity springs from the yearning to be the fullness of who you are.
God is the place where lover and Beloved are one.
Bhakti is the delicious intensity of love that takes you through the doorway,into the knowledge of the Real.
We serve God in order to become free, and become free in order to serve.
The path of the heart takes you out of the mind, and into the Presence.
Everything in your life is a vehicle for your transformation - use it!
The gift you offer another person is just your BEING.
Once we're free, our acts can free other people.
Let's trade all our judging for appreciating.
What you meet in another being is the projection of your own level of evolution.
We are here to remind each other what it's all about.
A moment comes when there is no other.
Be deeply invovled in life, yet less attached to it.
Our whole spiritual transformation brings us to the point where we realize that in our own being, we are enough.
A realized being is the loving, creative wisdom that is God.

"Think excitement, talk excitement, act out excitement,
and you are bound to become an excited person.
Life will take on a new zest, deeper interest and
greater meaning. You can think, talk and act yourself
into dullness or into monotony or into unhappiness.
By the same process you can build up inspiration,
excitement and surging depth of joy."

- Norman Vincent Peale -

"Joy increases as you give it,
and diminishes as you try to keep it for yourself.
In giving it, you will accumulate a deposit of joy
greater than you ever believed possible."

"I am convinced that attitude is the key to success
or failure in almost any of life's endeavors.
Your attitude - your perspective, your outlook,
how you feel about yourself, how you feel about
other people - determines your priorities, your actions,
your values. Your attitude determines how you interact
with other people and how you interact with yourself."

- Carolyn Warner -

"Courage is the most important of all the virtues,
because without it we can't practice any
other virtue with consistency."

While you cannot change other people, you can influence them through your own behaviors and actions. By being a living role model of what you want to receive from others, you create more of what you want in your life."

- Eric Allenbaugh -

"A dreamer is one who finds his way by moonlight,

with this priceless treasure?"
