Dance as though no one is watching you; love as though you have never been hurt before, sing as though no one can hear you, live as though heaven is on earth ~Alfred Souza
If you obey all the rules, you miss all the fun -Katharine Hepburn

"The more fun you have, the greater your value to yourself and to your society. The more fun you share with others, the more fun you have." - the oaqui

We spend too much time living in the ‘what if’ and need to learn to live in the ‘what is.’ ~ Rev. Leroy Allison

There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle.

The other is as though everything is a miracle. ~ Albert Einstein

There are many wonderful things that will never be done if you do not do them. Charles D. Gill

Life is to be lived. No excuses. No reservations. No holding back.
An enchanting story about violinist Fritz Kreisler tells how he once came across a beautiful instrument he wanted to acquire. When he finally raised the money for the violin, he returned to buy it and learned that it had already been sold to a collector.
He went to the new owner's home in order to try to persuade him to sell the violin. But the collector said it was one of his prized possessions and he could not let it go. The disappointed Kreisler turned to leave, but then asked a favor. "May I play the instrument once more before it is consigned to silence?"
Permission was granted and the great musician began to play. The violin sang out a quality of music so beautiful that the collector himself could only listen in wonderment. "I have no right to keep that to myself," he said after the musician finished. "The violin is yours, Mr. Kreisler. Take it into world, and let people hear it."
William Arthur Ward said, "If you believe in prayer, pray; if you believe in serving, serve; if you believe in giving, give." For you and I are exquisite violins -- our music is meant to be heard.
I want to live my life that way -- to take it into the world and live it fully. I'd rather burn out than rust out. I'd rather be used up than die not having done whatever I could...wherever I would.
I'm not talking about wearing ourselves out on over-activity. Happiness is never found in excessive busyness. But it is found in investing our lives in others. Saying YES when asked for a hand. Volunteering some time for a worthwhile organization. Spending an hour with a lonely relative.
In the end, I know that my happiness will not have been about by my ability or my inability. It will have been about my availability. My life is meant to be lived. ~ Steve Goodier

Don't wait for some magic gift. Share what you are, dare to be vulnerable, and you will find people who count you among their deepest friends - "let god love you"

One of the secrets of a happy life is continuous small treats ~ Iris Murdoc
Be unafraid and unashamed as a child! embrace the child in you!

It is not the years in your life
but the life in your years that counts. - Adlai Stevenson
"Perfect love is rare indeed -
for to be a lover will require
that you continually have
the subtlety of the very wise,
the flexibility of the child,
the sensitivity of the artist,
the understanding of the philosopher,
the acceptance of the saint,
the tolerance of the scholar and
the fortitude of the certain."
~Leo Buscaglia

Believe!"Of all the earthly music, that which reaches farthest into heaven is the beating of a truly loving heart." ~ Henry Ward Beecher

Become more and more innocent, less knowledgeable and more childlike. Take life as fun - because that's precisely what it is! ~Osho

Experience is not what happens to you. It is what you do with what happens to you.
- Aldous Huxley

The world is a book and those who do not travel read only one page.” - St. Augustine
smile you sent, will always return ~ Indian Proverb
