I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.
Maya Angelou

There comes a time when the mind takes a higher plane of knowledge but can never prove how it got there.
Albert Einstein

It is not how much we have, but how much we enjoy, that makes happiness.
Charles Spurgeon

True wisdom comes to each of us when we realize how little we understand about life, ourselves, and the world around us.

No matter how much cats fight, there always seem to be plenty of kittens.
Abraham Lincoln

Bob Dylan
Blowin' In The Wind

How many roads most a man walk down
Before you call him a man ?
How many seas must a white dove sail
Before she sleeps in the sand ?
Yes, how many times must the cannon balls fly
Before they're forever banned ?
The answer my friend is blowin' in the wind
The answer is blowin' in the wind.

Yes, how many years can a mountain exist
Before it's washed to the sea ?
Yes, how many years can some people exist
Before they're allowed to be free ?
Yes, how many times can a man turn his head
Pretending he just doesn't see ?
The answer my friend is blowin' in the wind
The answer is blowin' in the wind.

Yes, how many times must a man look up
Before he can see the sky ?
Yes, how many ears must one man have
Before he can hear people cry ?
Yes, how many deaths will it take till he knows
That too many people have died ?
The answer my friend is blowin' in the wind
The answer is blowin' in the wind.
