Song/Quote of the Week

Max Ehrmann
Be impatient. All things don't come to those who wait. Push on with what you believe because life is very short. (Geoffrey Ballard)
I Turn to You
Christina Aquilera
No pessimist ever discovered the secret of the stars, or sailed to an unchartered land, or opened a new doorway to the human spirit (Helen Keller)
Everybody hurts sometimes
I have had nightmares, and I've had dreams. I overcame the nightmares because of my dreams. (Jonas Salk)
Pretty Belinda
Chris Andrews
You cannot go back and unscramble eggs. There is no way to undo what has done. Let's move out of our past failures, and starting with our scrambled eggs, learn how to make souffle! (Barbara Johnson)
Say What You Will
Justin Hines & SETA/Siyaya Choir
Problems are opportunities in work clothes. (Henry Kaiser)
Heal the World
Michael Jackson
Never be afraid to try something new. Remember, amateurs built the Ark; prefessionals built the Titanic. (Unknown)
Many of the things you can count, don't count. Many of the things you can't count, really count. (Albert Einstein)


We all have our 'good old days' tucked away inside our hearts, and we return to them in daydreams like cats to favourite armchairs (Brian Carter)
I wanted a perfect ending. Now I've learned, the hard way, that some poems don't rhyme, and some stories don't have a clear beginning, middle, and end. Life is about not knowing, having to change, taking the moment and making the best of it, without knowing what's going to happen next. (Gilda Radner)
Reflect upon your present blessings, of which every man has many - not on your past misfortunes, of which all men have some. (Charles Dickens)

What a Wonderful World

Louis Armstrong

If you can start the day without caffeine,
If you can always be cheerful, ignoring aches and pains,
If you can resist complaining and boring people with your troubles,
If you can eat the same food every day and be grateful for it,
If you can understand when your loved ones are too busy to give you any time,
if you can take criticism and blame without resentment,
If you can conquer tension without medical help,
if you can relax without alcohol,
If you can sleep without the aid of drugs,
Then you are probably the family dog!

Il ne sert de rien a l'homme de gagner la Lune s'il vient a perdre la Terre. (It is useless for man to win the Moon if he loses the Earth.)(Francois Mauriac)

When someone says you cannot do it, YOU CAN! (Dan Skinstad)

One of the most tragic things I know about human nature is that all of us tend to put off living. We are all dreaming of some magical rose garden over the horizon - instead of enjoying the roses blooming outside our windows today. (Dale Carnegie)

Don't wait for time, Make it.   Don't wait for love,  Feel it.  Don't wait for money,  Earn it.   Don't wait for the path,  Find it.  Don't wait for opportunity,  Create it.   Don't go for less,  Get the best.  Don't compare,  Be unique.   Don't fight your misfortune,  Transform it.  Don't avoid failure,  Use it.   Don't dwell on mistake,  Learn from it. Don't back down,  Go around.   Don't close your eyes,  Open your mind.

Life's too short for single-ply toilet paper.
Life's challenges are not supposed to paralyze you, they're supposed to help you discover who you are. (Bernice Johnson Reagon)
Hallelujah Canadian Tenors If you don't design your own life plan, chances are you'll fall into someone else's plan. And guess what they have planned for you? Not much. (Jim Rohn)
...what matters is not your faults of yesterday, what matters is who you are now and what you will do and be tomorrow... because if you start smiling and being positive now tomorrow will bring a beautiful yesterday... RJ86

To strengthen the muscles of your heart,

the best exercise is lifting someone else's spirit

whenever you can. (Dodinsky)

Enjoy the little things, for one day you may look back and realize they were the big things.  (Robert Bault)
Christmas is forever, not for just one day,
for loving, sharing, giving, are not to put away
like bells and lights and tinsel, in some box upon a shelf.
The good you do for others is good you do yourself...
(Norman Wesley Brooks)

Volg jy net die voetpad hier

deur borde aangedui,

of trap jy jou eie spore

waar jou hart jou lei?

Lewe jy jou drome,

is jy vry...?

Sal jy kan terug kyk

en se eendag...

Die lewe was vir my?



(My translation below)

Are you just following the signposts here

Along life's cobbled way

Or are you leaving footprints

Guided by what your heart has to say?

Do you live your dream ... Are you free?

Can you look back and say one day

Life was for me?
