Kind Words, like favorite flowers, are admired by all. Tomorrow will be a better day if you begin this morning to improve it.

Though we travel the world over to find the beautiful, we must carry it with us, or we find it not. --Ralph Waldo Emerson.

Don't worry about what others will think. Have confidence in your own judgment.

He that can have patience can have what he will. --Benjamin Franklin.
