handle yourself, use your head. To handle others, use your heart.
"Learn to enjoy
every minute of your life. Be happy now. Don't wait for something
outside of yourself to make you happy in the future. Think how
really precious is the time you have to spend, whether it's at work
or with your family. Every minute should be enjoyed and savored."
Earl Nightingale, 1921-1989, Author and Radio Announcer
“In order to
strengthen the father in the home, I make two simple suggestions:
first, sustain and respect the father in his position; second, give
him love, understanding, and some appreciation for his efforts. . .
. “In terms of giving fathers love and understanding, it should be
remembered that fathers also have times of insecurity and doubt.
Everyone knows fathers make mistakes—especially they themselves.
Fathers need all the help they can get; mostly they need love,
support, and understanding from their own.” --James E. Faust,
“The Father Who Cares,” Liahona,
Sept. 2006, 4
"I looked on child
rearing not only as a work of love and duty but as a profession that was fully
as interesting and challenging as any honorable profession in the world and one
that demanded the best I could bring to it.” — Rose Kennedy

"Only the truth of who you are,
if realized, will set you free." -
~ Eckhart Tolle
"There seems to be a superstition among many thousands of our young
people who hold hands and smooch in the drive-ins that marriage is a
cottage surrounded by perpetual hollyhocks, to which a perpetually
young and handsome husband comes home to a perpetually young and
ravishing wife. When the hollyhocks wither and boredom and bills
appear, the divorce courts are jammed.
"Anyone who imagines that bliss is
normal is going to waste a lot of time running around shouting that
he's been robbed. The fact is that most putts don't drop. Most beef
is tough. Most children grow up to be just ordinary people. Most
successful marriages require a high degree of mutual toleration.
Most jobs are more often dull than otherwise. . . .
"Life is like an old-time rail
journey—delays, sidetracks, smoke, dust, cinders, and jolts,
interspersed only occasionally by beautiful vistas and thrilling
bursts of speed. The trick is to thank the Lord for letting you have
the ride." Gordon B. Hinckley
