Throughout life people will make you mad, disrespect you and treat you bad. Let God deal with the things they do, cause hate in your heart will consume you too.
Will Smith

Life is a song - sing it.
Life is a game - play it.
Life is a challenge - meet it.
Life is a dream - realize it.
Life is a sacrifice - offer it.
Life is love - enjoy it.
Sai Baba

I arise in the morning torn between a desire to improve the world and a desire to enjoy the world. This makes it hard to plan the day.
E. B. White

When we remember we are all mad, the mysteries disappear and life stands explained.
Mark Twain

"Babylon 5: And All My Dreams, Torn Asunder (#5.16)" (1998)
[last lines]
Captain John Sheridan: What does the candle represent?
Delenn: Life.
Captain John Sheridan: Whose Life?
Delenn: All Life. Every Life. We are all born as molecules in the hearts of a billion stars. Molecules that do not understand politics or policies or differences. Over a billion years, we foolish molecules forget who we are and where we came from. In desperate acts of ego, we give ourselves names, fight over lines on maps, and pretend that our light is better than everyone else's. The flame reminds us of the piece of those stars that lives on inside us. The spark that tells us: "You should know better." The flame also reminds us that life is precious as each flame is unique. When it goes out, it's gone forever. And there will never be another quite like it. So many candles will got out tonight. I wonder some days if we can see anything at all.

Every man dies. Not every man really lives.
William Wallace

Beatles
In My Life
Songwriters: NUNEZ, JOSE / LAMBERTIS, OCTAVIA C

There are places I remember
All my life, though some have changed
Some forever not for better
Some have gone and some remain
All these places have their moments
With lovers and friends I still can recall
Some are dead and some are living
In my life I've loved them all

But of all these friends and lovers
There is no one compares with you
And these memories lose their meaning
When I think of love as something new
Though I know I'll never lose affection
For people and things that went before
I know I'll often stop and think about them
In my life I love you more

Though I know I'll never lose affection
For people and things that went before
I know I'll often stop and think about them
In my life I love you more
In my life I love you more

Yes, very nice for a Sunday morning (I read it this morning).
I had a healthy breakfast.

But the regular season Football started today, so I'm deep into
hard playing games. The niners and raiders were both on today, fun, We had Football food, hot dogs, white buns and chips, No greens.
So I'll go with:

"I arise in the morning torn between a desire to improve the world and a desire to enjoy the world. This makes it hard to plan the day."
E. B. White
