Comfort on difficult days,
Smiles when sadness intrudes,

Friendships to brighten your being,
Faith so that you can believe,
Confidence for when you doubt,
Courage to know yourself,
Patience to accept the truth,
Love to complete your life.

Why live?
Adding one to my count of days, or postponing

feel the wind newly on my skin,
touch a new fear, a new anger,
and with focused intent and good fortune,
find an ample measure of my own joy.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

When we hate our enemies, we are
giving them power over us:

Our hate is not hurting them at all,
but our hate is turning our own days
and nights into a hellish turmoil.
- Dale Carnegie

Life is a journey. It is not a race to test

as the days slowly move past in dress review.
