Starting my day like this:

four women laughing outside with arms linkedYa gotta learn to laugh. It’s the way to true love. ~ John Travolta- in the film Michael

Love is an excess of friendship. ~ Aristotle



If lots more of us loved each other, we’d solve lots more problems. And then the world would be a gasser.  ~ Louis Armstrong

Too much of a good thing is wonderful.  ~ Mae West

There is no surprise more magical than the surprise of being loved. It is God’s finger on man’s shoulder.     ~ C. Morgan



If we make our goal to live a life of compassion and unconditional love, then the world will indeed become a garden where all kinds of flowers can bloom and grow. ~ Elisabeth Kubler-Ross
