It takes years to build up trust, but only seconds to destroy it.
You can get by on charm for about fifteen minutes.
After that you’d better know something.
Don’t compare yourself to the best others can do,
But to the best you can do.
It’s not what happens to people that’s important.
It’s what they do about it.
Always leave loved ones with loving words.
It may be the last time you see them.
You control your attitude or it controls you.
It isn’t always enough to be forgiven by others.
Sometimes you have to learn to forgive yourself.
Your background and circumstances may have influenced who you are,
But you are responsible for who you become.
Even if you do the right thing for the wrong reason,
It’s still the wrong thing to do.–Anonymous

We always may be what we might have been.–Adelaide A. Proctor
