Some are born great, some achieve greatness, and some hire public relations officers. -- Daniel J. Boorstin There are times of your life when life is about getting. And then, there are times when your life is about giving. Always pray to live in those giving times. Only there are you truly safe. -- Bill Purdin He that's aground knows where the shoal doth lie. -- Benjamin Franklin When we turn to one another for counsel we reduce the number of our enemies. -- Kahlil Gibran When we honestly ask ourselves which person in our lives means the most us, we often find that it is those who, instead of giving much advice, solutions, or cures, have chosen rather to share our pain and touch our wounds with a gentle and tender hand. The friend who can be silent with us in a moment of despair or confusion, who can stay with us in an hour of grief and bereavement, who can tolerate not knowing, not curing, not healing and face with us the reality of our powerlessness, that is a friend who cares. -- Henri Nouwen Where facts are few, experts are many. -- Donald R. Gannon Some are born great, some achieve greatness, and some hire public relations officers. -- Daniel J. Boorstin There are times of your life when life is about getting.

Of all the self-fulfilling prophecies in our culture the assumption that aging means decline and poor health is probably the deadliest. -- Marilyn Ferguson At 18 our convictions are hills from which we look; At 45 they are caves in which we hide. -- F. Scott Fitzgerald The young have aspirations that never come to pass, the old have reminiscences of what never happened. -- Saki It is a sadness of growing older that some of us lose our ardent appreciation of what is new and different and difficult. -- Elizabeth Aston You can only perceive real beauty in a person as they get older. -- Anouk Aimee Turn your midlife crisis to your own advantage by making it a time for renewal of your body and mind, rather than stand by helplessly and watch them decline. -- Jane E.

Ball As I grow older, war looks more and more horrible to me. -- Bill Purdin Oh, the worst of all tragedies is not to die young, but to live until I am seventy-five and yet not ever truly to have lived. -- Martin Luther King Jr. Age is not a particularly interesting subject. Anyone can get old. All you have to do is live long enough. -- Groucho Marx The heart that loves is always young.-- Anonymous The quality, not the longevity, of one's life is what is important. -- Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. As you grow older, you'll find the only things you regret are the things you didn't do. -- Zachary Scott Nothing is more disgraceful than that an old man should have nothing to show to prove that he has lived long, except his years.-- Seneca Those who love deeply never grow old; they may die of old age, but they die young. -- Arthur Wing Pinero Age is opportunity no less Than youth itself, though in another dress, And as the evening twilight fades away, The sky is filled with stars, invisible by day. -- Longfellow When you were born, you cried and the world rejoiced. Live your life so that when you die, the world cries and you rejoice. -- Ancient Cherokee Saying

Perhaps, after all, America never has been discovered. I myself would say that it had merely been detected. -- Oscar Wilde "Let America be America again." Let America be America again.

(America never was America to me.) -- Bill Purdin
