I ask not for a lighter burden, I ask for broader shoulders.
Jewish proverb
In life, it seems that we can always reflect and appreciate the meaning or logic behind certain events...events that are absolutely vital for one's inner growth whether they are good or bad experiences...events that make perfect sense. So what does this mean? It means that everything that will happen in life will have a purpose, despite our difficulty in appreciating the significance of the moment within the moment, because there is Meaning behind and within life. So this very day and this very moment we are in the midst of something meaningful and of incomprehensible importance. Live wisely and live lovingly because where you are tomorrow is the culmination of what you do today. Do things right today and reflect on life tomorrow with a smile.
Aaron Kusza
Life is pleasant, death is peaceful. Its the transition between them thats difficult.
Isaac Asimov

Everything is very simple in war, but the simplest thing is difficult...War is the province of uncertainty; three-fourths of the things on which action in war is based lie hidden in the fog of a greater or lesser certainty.
Carl von CLausewitz, On War
You cannot see what I see because you see what you see. You cannot know what I know because you know what you know. What I see and what I know cannot be added to what you se and what you know because they are not of the same kind. Neither can it replace what you see and what you know, because that would be to replace you yourself.
Douglas Adams
Dreams of paradise are images of perfection in the mind flashing by in your thoughts at night is it a sign of yet to come, a goal you want to reach or a fantasy dreamed up knowing you can never have it if you try you might succeed but if you don't then your potential paradise would be lost forever.
Mike Sanders
It is not the coming together or the parting of two people that counts, or where or when, but those two pepole themselves and in what matter they are joined. And if it is not with hate but with love, not with impatience but with understanding, and never with bordeom but with interest, then nothing can be wrong with their being together, no matter how wrong it may seem to others. But those others, they do not count, they must not be permitted to count for it is only between the two persons themselves that it must have meaning. It is not so difficult for people to arrange their lives sensibly if they behave sensibly, bu tto arrange their lives happily, that is a far, far different thing.
Lady by Thomas Tryon

If you lend a person any money, it becomes lost for any purposes of your own. When you ask for it back again, you find a friend made an enemy by your own kindness. If you begin to press further- either you must part with that which you have entrusted, or else you must lose that friend.
Platus
There is no purpose in life; it is merely a false hope for the conscience, to give cause for such a minute existence in this ever expansive universe.
Craig Dave
You can make more friends in two months by becoming interested in other people than you can in two years by trying to get other people interested in you.

Women are like apples on trees. The best ones are at the top of the tree. The men don't want to reach for the good ones because they are afraid of falling and getting hurt. Instead, they just get the rotten apples from the ground that aren't as good, but easy. So the apples at the top think something is wrong with them, when in reality, they're amazing. They just have to wait for the right man to come along, the one who's brave enough to climb all the way to the top.
I know not with what weapons World War III will be fought, but World War IV will be fought with sticks and stones.
Albert Einstein (1879 - 1955)
The only difference between genius and stupidity is that genius has limits.

For long you live and high you fly and smiles you'll give and tears you'll cry and all that you touch and all that you see is all your life will ever be.
