  4. An old friend once said: Nothing happens in the future… only in the present. So what’s more important, now or next week?

  6. I like this B.C. Ferries slogan: The road to enlightenment is not paved.

  7. Be known by who you are, not by what things you possess.

  8. Life is a quest for meaning and fulfillment. The hard part is trying to determine what is meaningful and recognizing when a level of satisfaction is attained.

  9. Glad to see some responses!
    The man doing the pondering is of course Rodin’s “Thinker” at the Palace of the Legion of Honor. San Francisco.

  10. Grains of sand… such are memories over time. Sifting, gathering, intermingling, until run out. And then turned over in birth to flow once again, the hourglass of life.

  11. Unhappy people tend to dwell on the past, be annoyed by the present, and worry about the future. Happy people learn from the past, improve on their present, and plan for the future.

  12. Not In Vain

    If I can stop one heart from breaking,
    I shall not live in vain;
    If I can ease one life the aching,
    Or cool one pain,
    Or help one fainting robin
    Unto his nest again,
    I shall not live in vain. – Emily Dickinson

  13. Life
    When you don’t have any money, the problem is food.
    When you have money, the problem is sex.
    When you have both, the problem is health.
    When you have all three, you worry about death.
