just needed gordon b to remind me a few things....

"True love is not so much a matter of romance 
as it is a matter of anxious concern 
for the well-being of one's companion." 

"Aim high, 
but do not aim so high that you totally miss the target. 
What really matters is that he will love you, 
that he will respect you, 
that he will honor you, 
that he will be absolutely true to you, 
that he will give you the freedom of expression 
and let you fly in the development of your own talents. 
He is not going to be perfect, 
but if he is kind and thoughtful,
if he knows how to work and earn a living, 
if he is honest and full of faith, 
the chances are you will not go wrong, 
that you will be immensely happy." 

"Work at our responsibility as parents as if everything in life counted on it."  

"If we could follow the slogan that says,
"Turn off the TV and open a good book" 
we would do something of substance for a future generation." 

"Be believing, 
be happy, 
don't get discouraged. 
Things will work out."
