There will be one thing that will dominate your life.
I strongly suggest that it be something
of which you can be proud.

Spending My Time

I'm gonna spend my time like it's going out of style
I'm moving the bottom line further than a country mile
I still have hills to climb before I hit that wall
No matter how much time I buy
I can never spend it all.
Clint Black lyrics

Kahlil Gibran on Faith

I love you my brother, whoever you are –
whether you worship in your church,
 kneel in your temple or pray in your mosque.
You and I are all children of one faith,
for the diverse paths of religion
 are fingers of the loving hand of the Supreme Being,
a hand extended to all,
offering completeness of spirit to all,
eager to receive all.
Kahlil Gibran

Simple Religion-- Kindness

This is my simple religion.
There is no need for temples;
no need for complicated philosophy.
Our own brain, our own heart is our temple;
the philosophy is kindness.
