It is a good thing for an uneducated man to read books of quotations. Bartlett's Familiar

don't make.

stove-lid again - and that is well; but also she will never sit down on a cold one anymore.
Mark Twain

change the nature of your thinking.

from age and experience.

Memories can either make you or break you. They can drag you down, destroy your
confidence, wear out your spirit and keep you living in "what was" and not "what is." Or they

built on what you are capable of achieving at this very moment in time. Don't live in the past
- learn from it.
Connie Podesta

Every experience of love, bliss, belonging, inspiration and insight provides a stepping stone
back to your true self.
