I soon found out you can't change the world. 

The best you can do is to learn to live with it. 

~Henry Miller

The most pleasant and useful persons are those

who leave some of the problems of the universe for God to worry about. 

~Don Marquis

The time to relax is when

you don't have time for it.

~Attributed to both

Jim Goodwin and Sydney J. Harris

Some of the secret joys of living are not found by

rushing from point A to point B, but by

inventing some imaginary letters along the way. 

~Douglas Pagels
