“Never miss an opportunity to make others happy, even if you have to leave them alone in order to do it.” Author Unknown
“Never forget that you are one of a kind. Never forget that if there weren’t any need for you, in all your uniqueness, to be on this earth, you wouldn’t be here in the first place. And never forget, no matter how overwhelming life’s challenges and problems seem to be, that one person can make a difference in the world. In fact, it is always because of one person that all the changes that matter in the world come about. So be that one person.” R. Buckminster Fuller
