a letter for
/ X / Y
with a helping hand,
and lift another,
reach up for
good deed, no kind word can be
without its effect being felt for good upon all.
good may be infinitesimal,
but as a rock that is thrown in a pool
starts a wave from the center
which continues to enlarge until every
part of the shore is touched,
so your deeds, silent,
many of them,
unknown, unspoken, unheralded,
continue to radiate and touch many
David O. McKay
"The Impossible Dream"
To dream the
To fight the unbeatable foe
To bear with unbearable sorrow
To run where the brave dare not go
To right the unrightable wrong
To love pure and chaste from afar
To try when your arms are too weary
To reach the unreachable star
This is my quest
To follow that star
No matter how hopeless
No matter how far
To fight for the right
Without question or pause
To be willing to march into hell
For a Heavenly cause
And I know if I'll only be true
To this glorious quest
That my heart will lie peaceful and calm
When I'm laid to my rest
And the world will be better for this
That one man, scorned and covered with scars
Still strove with his last ounce of courage
To reach the unreachable star!
MAN OF LA MANCHA (1972)
Lyrics by Joe Darion
Reflect upon your
present blessings, of which everyone has many,
not on your past misfortunes, of which everyone has some.
Seeing yourself as you want
is the key to personal growth.
doesn't change reality.
Pawing through the past is not productive.
Too much attention to what might have been
actually gets in the way
of what still can be.
Neal A. Maxwell

Regret for the things we did can be tempered by
it is regret for the things we did not do that is inconsolable.
Sidney J. Harris
Despite your problems, your trials, and your temptations,
be assured that you will benefit in the end.
So look to the end and rejoice NOW!
Sometimes we learn the hard way that it doesn't pay to get
Positive thinking is an intellectual choice,
keeping our eyes focused on the light of optimism,
we can restore faith
in ourselves and stay clear of the shadows.

The past is a ghost, the future a dream,
and all we ever have is now.

Somebody hears a song that reminds them of you
Doing more things
faster is no substitute
for doing the right things.
Stephen R. Covey
American Best Selling Author and Speaker
We'll never know what's possible
until we're willing to step outside of our comfort
and seek that which we truly desire.
You can't reach your goals
without occasionally taking some long shots.
To conquer without risk is to triumph without glory.
Too many times we pray for
ease, but that's a prayer seldom met.
What we need to do is pray for roots
that reach deep into the Eternal,
so when the rains fall and the winds blow,
we won't be swept asunder.
