“Be who you are and say what you feel because those who mind don’t matter and those who matter don’t mind.”
“Happiness is the only good. The place to be happy is here. The time to be happy is now. The way to be happy is to make others so.”
Robert Green Ingersoll

To laugh often and love much; to win the respect of intelligent persons and the affection of children; to earn the approbation of honest citizens and endure the betrayal of false friends; to appreciate beauty; to find the best in others; to give of one’s self; to leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch or a redeemed social condition; to have played and laughed with enthusiasm and sung with exultation; to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived—this is to have succeeded
R. W. Emerson
