    "Each morning when I open my eyes I say to myself: I, not events, have the power to make me happy or unhappy today. I can choose which it shall be. Yesterday is dead, tomorrow hasn't arrived yet. I have just one day, today, and I'm going to be happy in it." --Groucho Marx

    Love: Quotes Khalil Gibran
    If you love somebody, let them go, for if they return, they were always yours. And if they don't, they never were.

      Love gratified is love satisfied, and love satisfied is indifference begun.

        The love of liberty is the love of others; the love of power is the love of ourselves.

        (William Hazlitt (1778-1830)

            Transcription Without Acknowledgment

            A perspective on plagiarism:

            William Hazlitt in his Lectures on the English Poets(1818) wrote that: “The freedom and copiousness with which our most original writers, in former periods, availed themselves of the productions of their predecessors, frequently transcribing whole passages without scruple or acknowledgment, may appear contrary to the etiquette of modern literature.” This transcription without acknowledgment is not surprising given the fact that “at a time when to read and write was of itself an honorary distinction, when learning was almost as great a rarity as genius, and when in fact those who first transplanted the beauties of other languages into their own might be considered as public benefactors, and the founders of a national literature.” Such is one view of plagiarism expressed by an English essayist in 1818. It was a view the poet T.S. Eliot expressed when he was defining a great poet as someone who was not disinclined to steal the words of others and call them his own. Of course in our modern age, in academia, plagiarism has become and has been a sensitive issue. As a teacher of the humanities and social sciences for over three decades the problem of students copying the work of others was an endless concern to both me as a teacher in primary, secondary and post-secondary schools and my students.-Ron Price, Pioneering Over Four Epochs, 30 March 2007.

            The arts of painting and poetry are conversant
            with the world of thought within us, the world
            of sense around us, with what we see and know
            and feel intimately. They flow from the sacred
            shrine of our own breasts, and are kindled
            at the living lamp of nature. But the pulse
            of the passions assuredly beat as high,
            the depths and soundings of the human heart
            were as well understood three thousand or three
            hundred years ago, as they are at present:
            the face of nature and the human face divine
            shone as bright then as they have ever done.
            But it is their light, reflected by true genius
            on art, that marks out its path before it
            and sheds a glory round the Muses' feet
            with names blazoned in the very firmament
            of reputation and in the remotest elevation
            of thought and fancy abstracted from the world
            of action to that of contemplation
            on the vicissitudes of human life.

                Happiness is a journey, not a destination; happiness is to be found along the way not at the end of the road, for then the journey is over and it's too late. The time for happiness is today not tomorrow.
                If you be loved, be worthy of love.

                    I agree with you.

                      Life is too short to wake up with regrets,
                      So love the people who treat you right,
                      Love the ones who don't just because you can.
                      Believe everything happens for a reason.
                      If you get a second chance grab it with both hands,
                      If it changes your life, let it.
                      Kiss slowly.
                      Forgive quickly.
                      God never said life would be easy,
                      He just promised it would be worth it.
                      If you be loved, be worthy of love.

                        --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

                        The thought manifests itself as the word. The word manifests itself as the deed. The deed developes into habit and the habit hardens into character. So watch the thought and its way with care, let it spring from love, born out of concern for all beings.

                        Buddha.
                        If you be loved, be worthy of love.

                          All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing.
                          If you be loved, be worthy of love.

                            HAPPINESS

                            To be happy with a man, you must understand him a lot and love him a little.

                            To be happy with a woman, you must love her a lot and not try to understand her
                            at all.
                            If you be loved, be worthy of love.

                              All good is hard. All evil is easy. Dying, losing, cheating, and mediocrity is easy. Stay away from easy.
                              If you be loved, be worthy of love.
