Be careful of your thoughts, they may become words at any moment.

We have enough youth, how about a fountain of smart?

The word listen contains the same letters as the word silent.

Don't go through life, grow through life.-Eric Butterworth

Worry does not empty tomorrow of its sorrow. It empties today of its strength. - Corrie TenBoom

Keep your face to the sunshine and you will not see the shadows. - Helen Keller

People who are wrapped up in themselves make very small packages.

Don't cry because its over, smile because it happened.
