We should give children roots to know they are connected to us but we must
remember to uncover their wings so they can fly. Then they will come back.
The straight spine is an inheritance. It is agile enough to bend but its natural
position is perpendicular. . . . to hold the chin up
When as adults we realize that we no longer have the chance to save the world,
there are the children.
The children will do what we did not or could not. It is with great relief that the
torch is passed.
As we get older, our world becomes smaller but infinitely richer.
The one who chooses to come with an open head is the miracle among men.

Each of us have soft spots in need of gentle handling.
Friends feed the Spirit and good families are icing on the cake.
We should be building lives for ourselves, not lifestyles.
In a partnership there must be a compromise . . . of wishes but
not of self.
If humour was a monetary form of exchange, too many of us must
of needs file for bankruptcy.
