Youth is not a time of life, it is a state of mind.
Nobody grows old by merely living a number of years; people grow old by
deserting their ideals.
When you encounter difficulties and contradictions, do
not try to break them, but bend them with gentleness and time.
Don't limit a child to your own learning, for he was
born to another time.
Life is too short: To remember slights and insults. Life
is to serve: To lift, to lead, to love, to learn, and to enlighten oneself and
those around you.
Take time to live because the world has so much to give.
Let me give enough time to the improvement of myself
that I shall have not time to criticize others.
Those who love the Lord never have to see each other the
– old German Proverb
One of the misfortunes of our time is that in getting
rid of false shame we have killed off so much real shame as well.

Learn to make the most of life,
Lose no happy day,
Time can never bring thee back
Chances swept away.
Leave no tender word unsaid,
Love while life shall last,
The mill will never turn again
With water that has past.
If a husband and wife are too busy to have
some regular quality time together, they are too busy!
The paramount priority of parents is to

The precedent of actions yet to be.
It sometimes seems that intense desire
creates not only its own opportunities, but its own talents.

you will have to find time for illness later!

costly of all expenses.
Time is the thing life is made out of,
don't waste it.

GIVING IS LIVING
"Go give to the needy sweet charity's bread,
For giving is living" the angel said.
"And must I be giving again and again,"
My peevish, petulant answer ran.
"Oh, no," said the angel, piercing me through,
"Just give till the Master stops giving to you."
Let not that which matters least get in the
way of that which matters most.
Unfathomable Sea, whose waves are years;
Ocean of Time, whose waters of deep woe
Are brackish with the salt of human tears!

to every purpose under the heaven: A time to be born, and a time to die; a
time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted...

Time goes you say? Ah no!
Alas, Time stays, we go.

Time only is measured unto man....

Focus on Eternity with God to fulfill your
mission in mortality, to do His will in your life, and you will have joy in
this life and a fullness of joy hereafter.
