There was a little boy with a bad temper. His father gave him a bag of nails and told him that every time he lost his temper, to hammer a nail in the back fence. 
The first day the boy had driven 37 nails into the fence. Then it gradually dwindled down. He discovered it was easier to hold his temper than to drive those nails into the fence. 
Finally the day came when the boy didn't lose his temper at all. He told his father about it and the father suggested that the boy now pull out one nail for each day that he was able to hold his temper. The days passed and the young boy was finally able to tell his father that all the nails were gone. 
The father took his son by the hand and led him to the fence.You have done well, my son, but look at the holes in the fence. The fence will never be the same. When you say things in anger, they leave a scar just like this one. You can put a knife in a man and draw it out, it won't matter how many times you say I'm sorry, the wound is still there. A verbal wound is as bad as a physical one. 

Keep a grateful journal. Every night, list 5 things that happened this day that you are grateful for. What it will begin to do is change your perspective of your day and life. If u can learn to focus on what u have, u will always see that the universe is abundant; u will have more. If u concentrate on what u don't have, u'll never have enough. 

George Howe Colt: 
Touch is a primal need, as necessary for growth as food, clothing or shelter. From the nuzzles and caresses between mum and infant that form the foundation of the self, to holding of hands between a son and his dying father that allows a final letting go, touch is our most intimate and powerful form of communication. Michelangelo knew this: when he painted God extending a hand towards Adam on the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel, he chose touch to depict the gift of life. 

Tad Williams:
Never make your home in a place. Make a home for yourself inside your won head. U'll find what u need to furnish it-memory, friends u can trust, love of learning, and other such things. That way it will go with u wherever u journey. 

John Rosemond:
Parenting is not an intellectual endeavor. It does not emanate from the head. If it did, the smartest people would be the best parents, and I have never noticed that. Good parenting is a matter of how rooted u are in the steady soil of common sense. The heart and the gut are what make a gd parent, not the head. 

Robert Solow:
It is a gd idea to be ambitious, to have goals, to want to be gd at what u do, but it is a terrible mistake to let drive and ambition get in the way of treating people with kindness and decency. the pt is not that they will then be nice to u. It is that u will feel better abt yourself. 

Julian Barnes:
Books say,"She did this because." Life says, "She did this." Books are where things are explained to u; life is where things aren't explained to u. I'm not surprised that some people prefer books. Books make sense. The only problem is that the lives they make sense of are other people's lives, never your own. 

Arthur Gordon:
When we were growing up years ago in our sleepy town, most adults seemed rather staid and sober. There was, however, one memorable exception:Miss Lucy, a widow who lived with her prim and proper sister, Clara. But Miss Lucy was full of charm and sparkle and enthusiasm. 
One day Miss Lucy-in her 60s-asserted that she could still stand on her head. When we looked doubtful, she clamped her skirt between her knees and did so, braming at us upside down. "Oh Lucy," said Clara. "Do be your age!" 
Miss Lucy righted herself. "What sort of nonesense is that?" she asked. "How can anyone be anything but their age? The trick is to love your age. Love it when u're young and strong and foolish. Love it when u're old and wise. Love it in the middlw when the challenges come and u can solve some of them, maybe most of them. If u love your age, u'll never go round wishing u were some other age. Think abt that Clara."
