"Do not be mistaken; we are not meant for unhappiness; we are not meant to be miserable."

Paul Decker

"At thirty years of age, the will reigns; at fifty, the wit; and at seventy, the judgement."

Benjamin Franklin paraphrased for the 21st century

"Life is made up of small pleasures. Happiness is made up of those tiny successes. The big ones come too infrequently. And if you don't collect all these tiny successes, the big ones don't really mean anything."

Norman Lear

"You have to learn the rules of the game. And then you have to play better than anyone else."

Dianne Feinstein

"It takes so little to make people happy. Just a touch, If we know how to give it, just a word fitly spoken, a slight readjustment of some bolt or pin or bearing in the delicate machinery of a soul."

Frank Crane

"What vast additions to the conveniences and comforts of living might mankind have acquired, if the money spent in wars had been employed in works of rivers rendered navigable, or joined by canals, bridges, aqueducts, new roads, and other public works, edifices, and improvements..."

Benjamin Franklin

"If we are ever to enjoy life, now is the time, not tomorrow or next year.... Today should always be our most wonderful day."

Thomas Dreier

"People oft get credited for good decisions which they were forced to make."


"He who is narrow of vision cannot be big of heart."

Chinese proverb

"Art! Who comprehends her? With whom can one consult concerning this great goddess?"

Ludwig Van Beethoven
