He who allows his day to pass by without practicing generosity and enjoying life's pleasures is like a blacksmith's bellows- he breathes but does not live.
Be thankful for what you have; you'll end up having more. If you concentrate on what you don't have, you will never, ever have enough.
The 14th Dalai Lama
What if you gave someone a gift, and they neglected to thank you for it - would you be likely to give them another? Life is the same way. In order to attract more of the blessings that life has to offer, you must truly appreciate what you already have.
Pride slays thanksgiving, but a humble mind is the soil out of which thanks naturally grow. A proud man is seldom a grateful man, for he never thinks he gets as much as he deserves.
Henry Ward Beecher
The aim of life is appreciation; there is no sense in not appreciating things; and there is no sense in having more of them if you have less appreciation of them.
G. K. Chesterton
When work, commitment, and pleasure all become one and you reach that deep well where passion lives, nothing is impossible.
James M. Barrie
Occasionally in life there are those moments of unutterable fulfillment which cannot be completely explained by those symbols called words. Their meanings can only be articulated by the inaudible language of the heart.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
Remember the things in life that are free to each of us—our family, our friends, our soul, our hopes, our dreams, and our knowledge—are the most important.

Learn To DrawSubmitted by Skip Van Lenten
Whatever artistic talents I might possess, I owe to my mother. I spent a lot of time in the kitchen watching her cook while I was growing up, and I noticed that whenever she made French fries, she would lay them out on a brown paper bag to soak up the oil before putting them on our plates. One night, she ran out...
Mc MasterSubmitted by Anonymous
I go to Mac High School, and once a year we get snacks when we get off the bus. Usually I think nothing of it and just take a snack and then go on with the rest of my day. But today there were stickers on the bottles which told us to "pay it forward" and there was even a website to visit (which was this one) to...

I want to thank you for these advertisements. It's a nice change to be able to see something different from someone telling us to buy something. It is also the best when I see my kids watching and learning from them. They even have their favorite ones. Thank you.
