A longing fulfilled is sweet to the soul. The Bible

It is better to light a candle than to curse the darkness. Chinese proverb

Three things in human life are important.  The first is to be kind.  The second is to be kind.  And the third is to be kind. Henry James

Kindness is the heart of living.  It is what makes life bearable, meaningful and delicious. Glenda Green

Compassion can be defined as our capacity to care for other living beings.  Yet it goes a little deeper than that.  Compassion requires action - giving of our time, money, or experience whenever there's a need.  Since it is available in such abundance, we sometimes take this feeling for granted.  But, oh, it's power! Compassion is the ultimate salve we can place upon the universal feelings of despair, pain, or regret.  Which means that even sometimes the simplest act of kindness can define a moment.  Or change a life! Nieman Marcus catalog

I hear and I forget, I see and I remember, I do and I understand. Chinese proverb

After a time, you may find that having is not so pleasing a thing, after all, as wanting.  It is not logical, but it is often true. Spock from Star Trek

Spread love everywhere you go: First of all in your own house... let no one ever come to you without leaving better and happier.  Be the living expression of God's kindness; kindness in your face, kindness in your eyes, kindness in your smile, kindness in your warm greeting. Mother Theresa

There is no greater joy than giving and no greater gift that love. Unknown

Friends are Angels who lift us to our feet when our wings have trouble remembering how to fly.  Unknown

Treat your friends as you do your pictures and place them in their best light.  Jennie Jerome Churchill

Others treat us the way we invite them to treat us. Unknown

Life is nothing without desire. Esther and Jerry Hicks

If you're never scared or embarrassed, or hurt, it means you never take any chances. Julia Sorel

It's not in the having, it's in the getting.  Unknown

Things won are done; joy's soul is in the doing. William Shakespeare

The saints are sinners who keep on trying. Robert Louis Stevenson

Anxiety is the space between "now" and "then." Fritz Perls

Faith is like the air in a ballon.  If you've got it, you're filled.  If you don't, you're empty. Peggy Cahn

The deepest principle in human nature, is the craving to be appreciated. William James

Children enjoy the present because they have neither a past nor a future. Jean Delabruyere
