INSPIRATIONAL THOUGHTS • Last updated August 19, 2017

Friendship and Time

To realize the value of ONE YEAR, ask a student who failed a grade.
To realize the value of ONE MONTH, ask a mother who gave birth to a premature baby.
To realize the value of ONE WEEK, ask the editor of a weekly newspaper.
To realize the value of ONE HOUR, ask the lovers who are waiting to meet.
To realize the value of ONE MINUTE, ask a person who missed the train.
To realize the value of ONE SECOND, ask a person who just avoided an accident.
To realize the value of ONE MILLISECOND, ask the person who won a silver medal in the Olympics.

Treasure every moment that you have! And treasure it more because you shared it with someone special, special enough to spend your time. And remember that time waits for no one. Yesterday is history. Tomorrow is mystery. Today is a gift. That's why it's called the present!! Friends are a very rare jewel, indeed. They make you smile and encourage you to succeed. They lend an ear, they share a word of praise, and they always want to open their heart to us.

Learning

Learning how to learn is life's most important skill.
- Tony Buzan

Planning

The wise man bridges the gap by laying out the path by means of which he can get from where he is to where he wants to go.
- John Pierpont Morgan

Truer Words Were Never Spoken

Motherhood -- If it was going to be easy, it never would have started with something called labor! Shouting to make your children obey is like using the horn to steer your car, and you get about the same results.
To be in your children's memories tomorrow, you have to be in their lives today.
The smartest advice on raising children is to enjoy them while they are still on your side.
The best way to keep kids at home is to make the home a pleasant atmosphere and to let the air out of the tires.
The right temperature in a home is maintained by warm hearts, not by hot heads.
Raising a teenager is like nailing Jell-O to a tree.
Parents: People who bear infants, bore teenagers, and board newlyweds.
The joy of motherhood: the time when all the children are finally in bed.
Life's golden age is when the kids are too old to need baby-sitters and too young to borrow the family car.
Any child can tell you that the sole purpose of a middle name is so he can tell when he's really in trouble.
Grandparents are similar to a piece of string ~ handy to have around and easily wrapped around the fingers of grandchildren.
A child outgrows your lap, but never outgrows your heart.
God gave you two ears and one mouth ... so you should listen twice as much as you talk.
Adolescence is the age when children try to bring up their parents.
You know the only people in this world who are always sure about the proper way to raise children? Those who've never had any.
Cleaning your house while your kids are at home is like trying to shovel the driveway during a snowstorm.
Oh to be only half as wonderful as my child thought I was when he was small, and half as stupid as my teenager now thinks I am.
There are only two things a child will share willingly ...communicable diseases and his mother's age.
Adolescence is the age at which children stop asking questions because they know all the answers.
An alarm clock is a device for awakening people who don't have small children.
No wonder kids are confused today. Half the adults tell them to find themselves; the other half tell them to get lost.
Kids really brighten a household; they never turn off any lights.
Avenge yourself -- Live long enough to be a problem to your children.

Becoming

"Treat people as if they were what they should be, and you help them become what they are capable of becoming."
-Johannn von Goethe

Life

"Life is about enjoying yourself and having a good time."
-Cher

Happiness

"Why not seize the pleasure at once? How often is happiness destroyed by preparation, foolish preparation!"
-Jane Austen
