a wise women once said:
"Life is what you make it" "If you seek love, you need to both give and accept it", "If you seek wealth, honesty and hard work will give you a feeling of satisfaction..the richest feeling you'll ever know", "If you seek respect, you must treat each and every living thing as you would want to be treated"
The woman that said this was my Mother and I can remember these words from as young as 4 y.o.
Now for my own words to live by;
"when in doubt...wash your hands" (I,m a nurse)
