It is a thousand times better to have common sense without education than to have education without common sense.

Going forward

Have you ever been so far down that you don’t see how you can ever get out of it? Do you have problems that seem to overwhelm you? How do you come back from something like that? How do you move forward with your life?

Just remember this. No matter what has happened in the past, you always have something to contribute to life. As long as you are breathing, you can make a difference. It doesn’t matter who you are or what you have been, or even what you have done. That is all in the past, and you cannot change it, but you can change the present and the future.

You can resolve to make a positive contribution to life -- to your own life, to the lives of others, to your community, to the world, to the future. Nothing can pull you down far enough when you are resolved to make a difference, when you are committed to making a contribution.

Go foward. Find what you can contribute to life, and you will find fulfillment, joy and peace.

— Ralph Marston
