Happiness keeps you sweet,
Trials keep you strong;
Sorrows keep you Human;
Life keeps you humble;
Hope to keeps you happy,
Enthusiasm to look forward to tomorrow.

God gave us the gift of life.  The meaning of life is to find your gift.  Breathing is the first act of life and the last.  When the breath from God leaves, whatever remains is but dust and goes back to dust.

Science is organized knowledge; wisdom is organized life.  The ability to use our knowledge and experience to make good decisions and judgments.  Good judgment and advice in difficult and uncertain matters of life.  Listen to your instincts and manage growth wisely.  It will help you see and do the right thing at the right time in the right way, with the right people.  Observe and reflect, and become a little wiser everyday.  A wise old owl sat on an oak; the more he saw the less he spoke; the less he spoke the more he heard.  We are neither doves nor hawks but owls, and we are vigilant when others are resting.

Wisdom is not a product of schooling but of the lifelong attempt to acquire it.  Knowledge comes from learning.  Experience comes from living.  A life without problems is like a school without lessons.  Sometimes you have to experience the bad, so that you can learn to appreciate the good things that enter your life.  To attain knowledge, add things everyday, understanding, and accepting of the fundamental nature of things in life, gained through the studying of new information, consists of a rich storage of information.  Intelligence is an individual's capacity to store and utilize information, while wisdom is more practical knowledge gained through experience.  Intelligence doesn't guarantee wisdom.  Intellect takes you to the door, but it doesn't take you into the house.

Happiness can be found even in the darkest of times, if you remember to turn on the light.  Do not dwell in the past; do not dream of the future.  Concentrate the mind on the present moment.  Worry does not empty tomorrow of its sorrow; it empties today of its strength.  It will not take away tomorrow's troubles; it takes away today's peace.  When life gives you a hundred reasons to cry; show life that you have a thousand reasons to smile.  When life hands you a lemon – make lemonade.  Keep your face always toward the sunshine -- and shadows will fall behind you.

No one is perfect.  That's why pencils have erasers.  Mistakes are painful, but as time goes by, they become a collection of experiences called "
lessons".  Grief gives you a hundred reasons to cry; hope gives you a thousand reasons to smile; joy gives you a million reasons to laugh, and love gives you a billion reasons to rejoice.  Wisdom provides contentment, joy, and peace.  Learn to manage your stress, making choices that bring you joy, keeping your immediate needs in mind, along with holding long-term perspectives.  The truth is more important than the facts.  The truth will set you free, but first it will piss you off.

Life is like a book.  Some chapters are sad, some are happy, and some are exciting.  You can't start the next chapter of your life if you keep re-reading the last one.  If you don't let the past die, then it won't let you live.  You can never plan the future by the past.  Be
strong enough to let go and wise enough to wait for what you deserve.  Don't be long where you don't belong.  Life's not about waiting for the storms to pass...  It's about learning to dance in the rain.  We must go through the storm to appreciate the sunshine.  You can't calm the storm, so stop trying.  What you can do is calm yourself.  The storm will pass.

The wisdom of life consists in the elimination of non-essentials.  Don't gain the world and lose your soul; wisdom is better than silver or gold.  To get something you never had, you have to do something you never did.  Never stop learning because life never stops teaching.  Learn from yesterday, live for today, hope for tomorrow.

Peace is the beauty of life.  Live to discover the value of life, not in the length of days.  In the end, it's not the years in your life that count.  It's the life of your years.
