                      The secret of change

                is to focus all of your energy,

                     not on fighting the old,

                       but on building the new.

                                                   -Socrates

       Somewhere on this globe, every ten seconds, there is a woman giving birth to a child.

Your present circumstances don't determine where you can go; they merely determine where you start.  -Nido Qubein

We cannot change the past.

But we can change our attitude toward it.

Uproot guilt and plant forgiveness.

Tear out arrogance and seed humility.

Exchange love for hate.

Thereby making the present comfortable

And the future promising.

                         -Maya Angelou

The most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known loss, and have found their way out of the depths. These persons have an appreciation, a sensitivity, and an understanding of life that fills them with compassion, gentleness, and a deep loving concern. Beautiful people do not just happen.
