Rebecca Hall-Gruyter, The Grandmother Legacies

No one will ever be able to touch them. But the men who,
like the sailors on the ocean, take them for guides, will
undoubtedly reach their goal."

vigorously act. There is no other route to success."
Stephen A. Brennan
"There are two ways of being happy,-- we may either diminish our wants or augment our means-- either will do-- the result
is the same; and it is for each man to decide for himself and do that which happens to be the easiest. If you are idle, or
sick, or poor, however hard it may be to diminish your wants, it will be harder to augment your means. If you are active and
prosperous, or young, or in good health, it may be easier for you to augment your menas than to diminish your wants. But if
you are wise you will do both at the same time, young or old, rich or poor, sick or well; and if you are very wise, you will
do both in such a way as to augment the general happiness of society."

"Humor is something that thrives between man's aspirations and his limitations.
There is more logic in humor than in anything else.
Because, you see, humor is truth."
"Words may show a man's wit, but actions his meaning.
Benjamin Franklin Quotes

"Teamplayer: Once who unites others toward a shared destiny

"Music produces a kind of pleasure which human nature cannot do without."
"Take a music bath once or twice a week for a few seasons.
You will find it is to the soul what a water bath is to the body."
Oliver Wendell Holmes
Funny Quotes about Life
"Among those whom I like or admire, I can find no common denominator,
but among those whom I love, I can: all of them make me laugh."
W. H. Auden
"Words mean more than what is set down on paper.
It takes the human voice to infuse them with shades of deeper meaning."
Maya Angelou Quotes
"Poetry is not a turning loose of emotion, but an escape from emotion;
it is not the expression of personality but an escape from personality.
But, of course, only those who have personality and emotion know
what it means to want to escape from these."

"A man should hear a little music, read a little poetry,
and see a fine picture every day of his life, in order that worldly
cares may not obliterate the sense of the beautiful which God
has implanted in the human soul."
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
