      There comes a time in life when you have to let go of all the pointless drama in your life and the people that create it, and surround yourself with people who make you laugh so hard that you forget the bad and focus solely on the good! After all, life is too short to be anything but happy! ~ Author Unknown

      And one I wrote myself:

      Your life is a book that you author. Every day is a new blank page that you have the ability to write. It's up to you whether you pen a tragedy or an inspirational. ~ Terra Kern

    If you skip this quote because it's not a quick one liner, then you're missing a lot...

    "You cannot strengthen the weak by weakening the strong. You cannot help small men by tearing down big men. You cannot help the poor by destroying the rich. You cannot lift the wage earner by pulling down the wage-payer. You cannot keep out of trouble by spending more than your income. You cannot further the brotherhood of man by inciting class hatreds. You cannot build character and courage by taking away a man's initiative and independence. You cannot help men permanently by doing for them what they could and should do for themselves."
    - Abraham Lincoln

      Though this quote has been often attributed to Lincoln, it allegedly was penned by William J. H. Boetcker in his pamphlet entitled The Ten Cannots - though still relevant in any regard.

        Somehow I think that saying has been around a few years longer than Justin has.

        Hmm...looks like you're right. I found several sources that believe the quotes were incorrectly attributed to Lincoln because he was quoted on one side of a leaflet and Boetcker's words on the other side. People thought Lincoln was the source of all the words and it snowballed.

        Now I have to fix my quotes file.

    Hello to all here. Good discussion going in this forum. I also wanna share my favourite quotes,
    I like these two:
    "It's true that we don't know what we've got until we lose it, but it's also true that we don't know what we've been missing until it arrives."
    or
    "Friendship is like peeing on yourself: everyone can see it, but only you get the warm feeling that it brings."
