The beauty of the world has two edges, one of laughter, one of anguish, cutting the heart asunder.

If you could

If you could change anything in the world, what would it be? If you could truly make a difference in the lives of those around you, how would you do it?

If you suddenly realized that today was like no other, with each moment a special, priceless and irreplaceable treasure, how would you spend it? If the world was depending on you to move it forward, what would your first step be?

If you could clearly see tomorrow, how would it look? If you could create tomorrow just the way you wanted, what would it be like? If you could tell others exactly what you thought, what would you say? If you knew you could not fail, what would you attempt?

The truth is, you can do all these things and more. Every moment is your opportunity, every situation is your starting point. Think of the very best you would do if you could. Then make it happen, because you can.

— Ralph Marston
