"Sitting behind the desk of Gen. Douglas MacArthur in MacArthur's suite
at the Manila Hotel overlooking the bay, I sensed the awesome power and
authority that came with that position and the terrible sense of responsibility that 
comes with that power."  Dr. Michael McKinney

peace of mind 101 (author unknown)

Do not undermine your worth by comparing yourself with others.  It is because we are different that each of us is special.

Do not set your goals by what other people deem important.  Only you know what is best for you.

Do not take for granted the things closest to your heart.  Cling to them as you would your life, for without them, life is meaningless.

Do not let your life slip through your fingers by living in the past, nor for the future.  By living your life one day at a time, you live all the days of your life.

Do not give up when you still have something to give.  Nothing is really over until the moment you stop trying.

Do not be afraid to encounter risks.  It is by taking chances that we learn how to be brave.

Do not shut love out of your life by saying it is impossible to find.  The quickest way to receive love is to give love; the fastest way to lose love is to hold it too tightly.

Do not dismiss your dreams.  To be without dreams is to be without hope; to be without hope is to be without purpose.

Do not run through life so fast that you forget not only where you have been, but also where you are going.  Life is not a race, but a journey to be savored each step of the way.

Here is the test to find whether your mission on earth is finished: If you're alive it isn't (Richard Bach)

God doesn't comfort us to make us comfortable but to make us comforters (L.H. Lovett)

You think that what you are accomplishing is a drop in the ocean.  But if this drop were not in the ocean, it would be missed.  (Mother Teresa)

I've learned.... that I feel better about myself when I make others feel
better about themselves. 

I've learned.... that having a child fall asleep in your arms is one of
the most peaceful feelings in the world. 

I've learned.... that what we have done for ourselves alone dies with
us. What we have done for others and the world remains and is immortal. 

I've learned.... that one sincere apology is worth more than all the
roses money can buy.

as feathers in a storm.

I've learned.... that you should never say no to a gift from a child. 

I've learned.... that I can always pray for someone when I don't have
the strength to help them in some other way. 

I've learned.... that no matter how serious your life requires you to
be, everyone needs a friend to act goofy with. 

I've learned.... that sometimes all a person needs is a hand to hold and
a heart to understand. 

I've learned....that life is like a roll of toilet paper. The closer it
gets to the end, the faster it goes. 

I've learned.... that we should be glad God doesn't give us everything
we ask for. 

I've learned....that money doesn't buy class. 

I've learned.... that it's those small daily happenings that make life
so spectacular. 

I've learned.... that once a relationship is over, if you experienced
more smiles than tears, it wasn't a waste of time. 

I've learned.... that under everyone's hard shell is someone who wants
to be appreciated and loved. 

I've learned.... never to humiliate another person. Always give him an
honorable way to back down or out of something and still save face. 

I've learned.... that to ignore the facts does not change the facts. 

I've learned.... that when you plan to get even with someone, you are
only hurting yourself.

I've learned....that love, not time, heals all wounds.

smile. 

I've learned....  that no one is perfect until you fall in love with
them. 

I've learned.... that opportunities are never lost; someone will take
the ones you miss. 

I've learned.... that when you harbor bitterness, happiness will dock
elsewhere. 

I've learned.... that it is just as wrong to be rude to a child as to an
adult. In fact, it may be more unforgivable. 

I've learned.... that one should keep his words both soft and tender,
because tomorrow he may have to eat them. 

I've learned....  that a smile is an inexpensive way to improve your
looks. 

I've learned.... that I can't choose how I feel, but I can choose what I
do about it. 

I've learned.... that nobody wants to know what you're doing until
you're doing something that you don't want anyone to know. 

I've learned.... that everyone wants to live on top of the mountain, but
all the happiness and growth occurs while you're climbing it. 

I've learned.... that it is best to give advice in only two
circumstances; when it is requested and when it is a life-threatening
situation. 

I've learned.... that the less time I have to work with, the more things
I get done. 

I've learned.... that life is tough, but there is always help.

Honesty Truth

I once told a man a lie.  He responded by telling me this: All of the decisions that he 
made were based upon the words that I spoke.  I have long since told the truth.

Everyone wises to have truth on his side.  But not everyone wishes to be on the side of truth.  (Richard Whately)

Truthfulness is a corner-stone in character, and if it be not firmly laid in youth, there will ever after be a weak spot in the foundation. (Jefferson Davis)

Another good thing about telling the truth is you don't have to remember what you said.

DO IT ANYWAYS, BY MOTHER TERESA

People are often unreasonable, illogical, and self-centered; Forgive them, anyway.

If you are kind, people may accuse you of elfish, ulterior motives; Be kind anyway.

If you are successful, you will win some false friends and some true enemies.  Succeed anyway.

If you are honest and frank, people may cheat you; Be honest and frank anyway.

What you spend years building, someone could destroy overnight; Build anyway.

If you find serenity and happiness, they may be jealous; Be happy anyway.

The good you do today, people will often forget tomorrow; Do good anyway.

Give the world the best you have, and it may never be enough; Give the world the best you've got anyway.

You see, in the final analysis, it is between you and God; It was never between you and them anyway.
