In life longevity is not important but quality is.

If a lie is stretching the truth ; How come the truth can never be a lie?

If we are to revel in our glories we must acknowledge our failures.

To live in doubt is to live with the realization that
what was accomplished could have been done better.

Funny how our obsessions often become anothers responsibility.

Build your world around reality.
It's a foolish man who builds on promises.

Life is like a train ride.
You must stay on track and always pay a fee
to reach your destination.

Aging is inevitable. It's our state of mind during the process
which makes it rewarding.

Love should begin in an empty room where a glance into
the mirror is an expression of intimacy.

A modest person never converses with himself.

If you shoot for the moon and only get a star ;
Remember you started with nothing.

If life were only like a novel ;
We could mark our place and come back to it later.

If life gets too busy that the common people
don't seem to matter anymore.
Take a second to remember that you were once a commoner.
