The world is a looking glass, and gives back to every man the reflection of his own face. Frown at it, and it will in turn look sourly upon you; laugh at it and with it, and it is a jolly kind companion.
~ William Makepeace Thackeray (1811-1863)
Never underestimate your power to change yourself;
never over-estimate your power to change others.
~ Jackson Brown, Jr.
A friend is one who walks in when others walk out.
