Wealth after all is a relative thing since he that has little and wants less is richer than he that has much and wants more.
True friendship is like sound health; the value of it is seldom known until it is lost.
Men spend their lives in anticipations, in determining to be vastly happy at some period when they have time. But the present time has one advantage over every other — it is our own. Past opportunities are gone, future have not come.
