" Do not think of dying, if you still cannot think of the reason why you are living."
--- Copyright 2004 Jeaneth Solomon
We should not wish to die if we still cannot find the reason or explain why we are given life by God. We all have a mission in life, but the sad fact is, when problems come, some of us easily give up and just wish to die and end being in the world. But the question is; do we already know our purpose in this world?

LIFE to me means:
L-lake of happiness, joys and sorrows
I-industry where we mold and cut our character, personality and give a definition to our names
F-farmhouse build among the greenery of different human natures
E-etch something good on another's heart so that even the maker is proud of you

" Remember, people, this IS the job."
--- Author Unknown --- Submitted by G. H. --- California
A few years ago I was working in a terribly negative environment. On a day that was a particularly stressful for the entire office, our happy-go-lucky IT contractor stopped on his way out the door, turned and uttered this phrase. It was profound in the moment, and these words live in my head. If you don't like what you're doing when you're doing it, do something else.

" When in doubt, do without."
--- Author Unknown --- Submitted by Michelle Faircloth --- North Carolina
My father used to say this to me all the time when I was wrestling with a tough decision. It can cover so many areas of life and it is so true.

" Unexamined time is wasted time."
--- Author Unknown --- Submitted by William McGrath --- Cork, Ireland
This quote was in the opening address of a R/C missioner at the Parish of St Patrick's, Cork Ireland, about 15 years ago. To me this meant that every minute was precious and we are accountable for how we live each day.

Egg
Life begins
Worm-like crawling caterpillar
Eating, growing and molting
By and by, it withdraws
Encloses itself completely in silky cocoons
In solitude it reforms itself
In shape and form
Adorn with wings
Cocoon splits
Butterfly!
