You will become as small as your controlling desire; as great as your dominant aspiration. - James Allen, Writer (1864-1912)

~~~~~~~ SPECIAL THOUGHTS:
Thoughts on Friendship
If you should die before me, ask if you could bring a friend.
If you live to be a hundred, I want to live to be a hundred minus one day, so I never have to live, without you.
True friendship is like sound health; the value of it is seldom known until it is lost.
A real friend is one who walks in when the rest of the world walks out.
My father always used to say that when you die, if you've got five real friends, then you've had a great life.
If all my friends were to jump off a bridge, I wouldn't jump with them, I'd be at the bottom to catch them.
Hold a true friend with both your hands.
I'll lean on you and you lean on me and we'll be okay.
Friendship is one mind in two bodies.
Don't walk in front of me, I may not follow. Don't walk behind me, I may not lead. Walk beside me and be my friend.
Everyone hears what you say. Friends listen to what you say. Best friends listen to what you don't say.
A friend is someone who knows the song in your heart and can sing it back to you when you have forgotten the words.
We all take different paths in life, but no matter where we go, we take a little bit of each other everywhere.
Friends are God's way of taking care of us.
Strangers are just friends waiting to happen.

~~~~~~~ THIS & THAT:
What You're Telling People
If you drive this COLOR of vehicle . . .
Part 2 of 2 [Oct 24, 25]
You're assertive (or aggressive) and strong.
It screams "Look at me!" - which is why you don't see it on family sedans. lt's for sporty SUVs and expensive sports cars, in which it also says, "I'm so rich I don't care what you think" (example $50,370 Corvette convertible).
You're on top of the trends. Orange (in many variations) is a key new color in 2003. GM has "sunset orange metallic" pickups; Mercedes-Benz offers a "paprika metallic" C-Class sports coupe.
You ooze class. The No. 1 car color (it passed white for the first time in 2001), silver represents speed, power and success - which is why it's the favorite color of baby boomers (ages 38 to 56).
A longtime favorite and the color of rental cars. People under 65 in a white car like to blend in. For the elderly, white harks back to the elegance and wealth of the 1920s.
Power/aggression sums it up. The top choice for ages 24 to 37 and one of the top colors targeted by thieves (along with red).
BLUE (medium or dark):
You're conservative, middle of the road. Blue always seems to be No.5 or 6 on lists of the top 10 car colors.
GREEN: (medium or dark):
See blue, above, and add a touch of environmentalism.

~~~~~~~ KEEP SMILING:
A preacher phoned the city's newspaper. "Thank you very much," said he, "for the error you made when you announced my sermon topic for last Sunday. The topic I sent you was 'What Jesus Saw in A Publican.' You printed it as 'What Jesus Saw in a Republican' I had the biggest crowd of the year!"
