Monday quotes

You can't change the past, but you can ruin the present by worrying over the future.

Open your arms to change, but don't let go of your values.

If you can't see the light at the end of the tunnel. March down there and turn it on yourself.

Let your heart guide you. It whispers, so listen closely.

A hug is the perfect present: One size fits all and it's easy to exchange.

Sometimes, its what you dont do, that makes you who you are.

If you think the parade of life is passing you by, perhaps you're not listening to the music.

If it is not right, do not do it; if it is not true, do not say it.
--Marcus Aurelius

Anyone can enjoy good days; those who find ways to enjoy bad days have something going for them!

If you are too busy to laugh, you are too busy.

If you are willing to admit faults, you have one less fault to admit.
