Submitter's Note:
I came across these quotes on an old computer disc of mine, so thought I'd share. Enjoy...

"If you press me to say why I loved him, I can say no more than because he was he, and I was I."

- Author Unknown

"Immature love says: I love you because I need you. Mature love says: I need you because I love you."

- Erich Fromm (1900-1980, American Psychologist)


"God has created us so that we do small things with great
love. I believe in that great love, that comes or should
come from our heart, and should start at home: with my
family, my neighbors across the street, those right next
door. And this love should then reach everyone."

- Mother Teresa, in 'Mother Teresa'

"Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.
- Martin Luther King, Jr (1929-1968, American Black Leader, Nobel Prize Winner, 1964)

A great quote to start your day on a positive note!

"The greatness of a nation
consists not so much
in the number of it's people
or the extent of it's territory
as in the extent
and justice of it's compassion."

- Inscription at the Horse Memorial in Port Elizabeth, for horses killed in the Anglo-Boer War (1899-1902).

You can't change the past; but you can plan your future.
We, each one of us, can and must do what we CAN do:
to challenge our nation to change from what it is...
to what it could one day become. .

As they carry me to my deathbed, I'll be saying:
Can you just give me one more hour to finish off one last article, or book... PLEASE!"
- craig (as inspired by the quote of singer, Barry Manilow)
