" The meaning of life: Have a heart, or have the heart!"
Written in 2009 by Sekola Phakoe --- Lesotho
I realized that that's the way life is: you either have a heart, show compassion, be loving, giving, and so on or you have the heart to do what you (may) have to! Your choice determines who you are, and GIVES you your life!

" You have a choice! You ALWAYS, have a choice!"
Author Unknown --- Submitted by Kaylyn E. --- Washington
I remember being a Junior in High School and my Art teacher telling the class this. I was going through a lot of person struggles at the time with family and it just really hit home for me. An example he gave us was you can have parents who drink and do drugs and slap each other around and you can choose to become just like that OR you can change your circumstances by making a choice because "You have a choice! You ALWAYS, have a choice." You can let life eat you alive or you can take a stance and nip it in the butt before it nips you!

" Make it a habit to tell people thank you. To express your appreciation, sincerely and without the expectation of anything in return. Truly appreciate those around you, and you'll soon find many others around you. Truly appreciate life, and you'll find that you have more of it."

" One of the greatest feelings in life is the conviction that you have lived the life you wanted to live - with the rough and the smooth, the good and the bad- and that yours was shaped by your own choices and not by someone else's."

" Your 'Past' is not your pass to fail. Do not allow what happened to you minutes ago, days ago, weeks ago, months ago or years ago be the reason for you not to strive toward success for your life. Stop looking for reasons to fail or find fault for your lacking and slacking. Your past is past, your present is present and your future is all in your hands."

" Strange thing about the rain... It reveals all of the leaks."
Written in 2009 by Mary Ellen Smith --- Georgia
We've experienced lots of rain this early autumn... My thought process to this quote was thinking on sunny days... all is well and we put off things that we need to fix. We all agree... I'll do it tomorrow. It is only in the rainy times that reveal what needs to be fixed in us and we realize we cannot delay fixing it any longer. That is a powerful realization if we act on it.
