Dance like no one is watching,
sing like no one is listening.
Love like you'll never get hurt,
and live like it's heaven on earth.

To laugh often and much;
To win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children;
To earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends;
To appreciate beauty; To find the best in others;
To leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch or redeemed
social condition;
To know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived.
This is to have succeeded. - Unknown (often incorrectly attributed to Emerson)

Life moves on, whether we act as cowards or heroes. Life has no other discipline to
impose, if we would but realise it, than to accept life unquestioningly.
Everything we shut our eyes to, everything we run away from,
everything we deny, denigrate or despise, serves to defeat us in the end.
What seems nasty, painful, evil, can become a source of beauty, joy and strength, if
faced with an open mind. Every moment is a golden one for him who has the vision to
recognise it as such. - Henry Miller

She believes a moment exists in and of and for itself. You and I know this is a game; she thinks it is a dance. You cannot win or lose a dance, and without the prospect of gain or loss, there is nothing for us to hold over her head. - Aeon Flux
