... errm, adding a little "wisdom" wink



Like:







"The richest man is not the one who has the most,

but the one who needs the least..."

Posted:oh well, tripplexed post rolleyes

still I felt compelled to share this:


"]The world is round and the place which may seem like the end may also be the beginning."

(Ivy Baker Priest)

and

"Listen to the Exhortation of the Dawn!
Look to this Day!
For it is Life, the very Life of Life.
In its brief course lie all the
Verities and Realities of your Existence.
The Bliss of Growth,
The Glory of Action,
The Splendor of Beauty;
For Yesterday is but a Dream,
And To-morrow is only a Vision;
But To-day well lived makes
Every Yesterday a Dream of Happiness,
And every Tomorrow a Vision of Hope.
Look well therefore to this Day!
Such is the Salutation of the Dawn!"

(Kalidasa)

Happy new day wink

If nothing you do matters then all that matters is what you do...

Age is not a particularly interesting subject. Anyone can get old. All you have to do is live long enough.
