Zany Thoughts, Sayings and Proverbs

Do the best when you can, while you can. You will never know when your chance will be taken away.

The best chance you have for impacting others and making a use of your life is now.

There is no better time than now.

The hardest obstacle is always the second to the last.

Life is a joy in itself.

You will never appreciate the true value of friendship until you have no friends left.

If there was a limitation to the amount of friendship one can give, making new friends is stealing from another's heart.

Thank goodness we have 'Rs' or we have have fiends, not friends.
