一份珍贵的礼物A Precious Gift
Life is a precious gift to be cherished each day.
Regardless of where you are, open your heart to others and see the beauty in everyone and everything.
You will face anything that life has to offer, and when things get tough, don’t give up. Just be patient and walk through the storm, because running away from tough things will not save you.

There were times when your road was a rocky one, but you always you’re your head upon the road.
And the amazing part was that you always carried on through all those rough times with a smile on your face.

In a calm sea every man is a pilot.
But all sunshine without shade, all pleasure without pain, is not life at all. Take the lot of the happiest----it is a tangled yarn. Bereavements and blessings, on following another, make us sad and blessed by turns. Even death itself makes life more loving .Men come closest to their selves in the sober moments of life, under the shadows of sorrow and loss.
In the affairs of life or of business, it is not intellect that tells so much as character, not brains so much as heart, duanwenw.com not genius so much as self-control, patience, and discipline, regulated by judgment.
I have always believed that the man who has begun to live more seriously within begins to live more simply without. In an age of extravagance and waste, I wish I could show to the world how few the real wants of humanity are.
To regret one's errors to the point of not repeating them is true repentance.
There is nothing noble in being superior to some other man. The true nobility is in being superior to your previous self.
