Advice About Life, Love and Friendship from Very Wise People

by Hilary Gauntt on July 31, 2013

We either make ourselves miserable or we make ourselves strong. The amount of work is the same.              Carlos Castaneda

Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don’t matter and those who matter don’t mind.      Dr. Seuss

Even after all this time the sun never says to the earth “You owe me!”  Look what happens with a love like that, It lights the whole sky.       Hafiz

If I were asked to give what I consider the single most useful bit of advice for all humanity, it would be this:  Expect trouble as an inevitable part of life , and when it comes, hold your head high.  Look it squarely in the eye and say “I will be bigger than you.  You cannot defeat me.”  Then repeat to yourself the most comforting words of all, “This too shall pass.”       Ann Landers

We are not living in eternity.  We have only this moment, sparkling like a star in our hand – and melting like a snowflake.       Frances Bacon, Sr.

Life is a shipwreck but we must not forget to sing in the lifeboats.        Voltaire

Friends are kisses blown to us by angels.           Unknown

If there is ever a tomorrow when we are not together, there is something you must always remember: You are braver than you believe, and stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think, but most important of all, even if we are apart, I’ll always be with you.            A.A. Milne

This post is dedicated to our dearest Morgan Case and her devastated family.  She passed away suddenly on July 17th at age 23.  A candle in the wind…..
