A timid person is frightened before a danger, a coward during the time, and a courageous person afterward.

Joy of living

Think of the most joyful moments in your life and then consider this. Though the circumstances may have changed since then, you still have that very same joyous life within you, right here and now. You still have the ability to experience real, satisfying happiness and fulfillment.

Though the years pass and the changes come with each moment, you are still you. Your dreams, your hopes, your positive possibilities are ever with you. The world around you changes at a sometimes frightening pace, yet it takes nothing away from the abundant joy which you are capable of knowing.

As life whizzes by, keep in mind what is truly important to you. Stay in touch with the people and the purposes which really matter to you and which can bring you genuine fulfillment. Nurture and delight in the joy of living.

— Ralph Marston
