We must sail...

"I find the great thing in this world is not so much where we stand as in what direction we are moving. To reach the port of heaven, we must sail sometimes with the wind and sometimes against it--but we must sail, and not drift, nor lie at anchor."

--Oliver Wendell Holmes

Use well the days...

How precious is each day of life, and how quickly that can be forgotten! Every breath is a wonder, every sigh is a gift. Each moment is so deep and it passes all too soon. Life is a treasure, and everything depends on how it is used. It's all so simple, though it is not always easy.

There is only one choice:

"I'm glad that you are here with me." --Frodo to Sam in Tolkien's Lord of the Rings
