    Hi,

    " To see a world in a grain of sand
    And a heaven in a wild flower,
    Hold infinity in the palm of your hand
    And eternity in a hour."

    Wiliam Blake ... 1757-1827

    Take care

    "Tomorrow and tomorrow and tomorrow
    Creeps in this petty pace from day to day
    To the last syllable of recorded time;
    And all our yesterdays have lighted fools
    The way to dusty death. Out, out brief candle!
    Life's but a walking shadow, a poor player
    That struts and frets his hour upon the stage
    And then is heard no more."

    --Shakespeare

    "Anyway, no drug, not even alcohol, causes the fundamental ills of society. If we're looking for the source of our troubles, we shouldn't test people for drugs, we should test them for stupidity, ignorance, greed and love of power."

    "A history teacher may have once told you that we study history in order to avoid the mistakes of history. It's a tidy idea that ought to work, but often doesn't. You can study history until your eyeballs wrinkle, then look up, only to discover that someone else already made a mistake for you; and the guy who made the mistake will most likely tell you how fortunate you are to fight a war he began, or suffer an economic depression caused by his excess.

    The better answer is that we study history to understand ourselves, and thus the minds and emotions of our characters."

    The optimist sees the glass as half-full; the pessimist sees the glass as half-empty; the realist sees the water in the glass and calls it polluted. (Anonymous, to my knowledge)

    I found this one in the back of a book and thought it was so beautiful I just had to post it.
    On a personal note, I know first hand what it means. May you all be so fortunate.
