My favorite poem of all time is Robert Frost's "The Road Not Taken" Here it is: Two road diverged in a yellow wood And sorry I could not travel both And be one traveler, long I stood And looked down one as far as I could To where it bent in the undergrowth; Then took the other, as just as fair, And having perhaps the better claim, Because it was grassy and wanted wear Though as for that the passing there Had worn them really about the same; And both that morning equally lay In leaves no step had trodden black. Oh, I kept the first for another day! Yet knowing how way leads onto way, I doubted if I should ever come back. I shall be telling this with a sigh Somewhere ages and ages hence; Two roads diverged in a wood, and I- I took the one less traveled by, And that has made all the difference I think it's wonderful. It's about not following the pack, and creating your own way in life. I love it. I also like the quote: "The price of failure is unbearable to me, so the price of success is irrelevant"...very true, not sure who said this

Don't run ahead of God. Let him direct your steps. He has plan and he has time. God's clock is never early nor late. It always strikes on time. The greatest good you can do for another is not just to share your riches but reveal to them their own.

Never stop growing and learning. Never stop smiling and being enthusiastic and never stop loving life. Do you love and love what you do. Treasure the gift you received from up above all. It will survive long after your good health has vanished.

Fool your mind on the things that are beautiful. Life is too short to be wasted on worries. Think of the solution to the problem and remain good even if others are not. What came from the earth returns back to the earth and the spirit that was sent from heaven, again carried back and is received into the temple of heaven.
