Babies are such a nice way to start people. (Don Herrold)
Born on Monday,
Fair in face;
Born on Tuesday,
Full of God's grace;
Born on Wednesday,
Sour and sad;

Merry and glad;
Born on Friday,
Worthily given;
Born on Saturday,
Work hard for your living;
Born on Sunday,
You will never know want.   (Anonymous)

(Leo Buscaglia)
Please suggest a remedy to stop me trembling with joy like a lunatic when I receive and read your letters... You have given me a gift such as I never even dreamt of finding in this life. (Franz Kafka)
The best way to keep your friends is not to give them away. (Wilson Mizner)

Our obligation is to give meaning to life and in doing so to overcome the passive, indifferent life. (Elie Wiesel)

to leave the world a bit better
whether by a healthy child,
a garden patch,
or a redeemed social condition;
to know even one life has breathed
easier because you lived.
