Life is a box of chocolates. You never know what you're going to get.
Death is just a part of life. Something we are all destined to do.
I happen to believe you make your own destiny.
——What's my destiny, mama?
——You're going to have to figure that out for yourself.
There's only so much fortune a man really need and the rest is just for showing off.
I am not a smart man, but I know what love is.
You got to put the past behind you before you can move on.
Sometimes it would stop raining long enough for the stars to come out and than it was nice.
They just couldn't believe that somebody would do all that running for no particular reason.
Much to Live for
There is so much I have not been, so much I have not seen.
I have not thought and have not done or felt enough — the early sun, rain and the seasonal delight of flocks of ducks and geese in flight, the mysteries of late-at-night. I still need time to read a book, write poems, paint a picture, look at scenes and faces dear to me. There is something more to be of value — something I should find within myself — as peace of mind, patience, grace and being kind. I shall take and I shall give, while yet, there is so much to live for — rainbows, stars that gleam, the fields, the hills, the hope, the dreams, the truth that one must seek.
I’ll stay here — treasure every day and love the world in my own way!
