"If one could only learn to appreciate the little things ... A song that takes you away, for there are those who cannot hear. The beauty of a sunset, for there are those who cannot see. The warmth and safety of your home, for there are those who are homeless. Time spent with good friends for there are those who are lonely. A walk along the beach for tehre are those who cannot walk. The little things are what life is all about. Search your soul and learn to appreciate."
-- Shadi Souferian

 "...it isn't in size that you win or you fall. Be the best of whatever you are..."
-- Be the Best of Whatever You Are poem

“The brick walls are there for a reason. They’re not there to keep us out. 
The brick walls are there to give us a chance to show how badly we want something.” 
-- Randy Pausch

"... remember your puzzle box, patience, patience!!!" 
-- Owen Wilson as Roy O'Bannon, Shanghai Knights movie

"When I got my life in line with what God wanted, started living for Him and making Him my first priority, everything else seemed to fall into place. I believe that one of the reasons God let me struggle for forty-five years with only patches of succes was so that my ego would not take control of my behavior. I also believe that when good things did start to happen in my life, God wanted to be sure I knew Who was responsible and that I would never be confused about their source."
-- Zig Ziglar

"No bird soars too high if he soars with his own wings." 
-- William Blake

"It's a hard job, and a busy one. The lightkeepers have no union - not like the men on the storeboats - no one strikes for better pay or conditions. The days can leave him exhausted or sore, worried by the look of a storm front coming in at a gallop, or frustrated by the way hailstones crush the vegetable patch. But if he doesn't think about it too hard, he knows who he is and what he's for. He just has to keep the light burning. Nothing more."
-- M.L. Stedman, The Light Between Oceans novel (about Tom Sherbourne as a lightkeeper in Janus Rock).
