    Many people will walk in and out of your life, but only true friends leave footprints in your heart.
    To handle yourself, use your head; to handle others, use your heart.
    Anger is only one letter short of danger.
    If someone betrays you once, it is his fault; if he betrays you twice, it is your fault.
    Great minds discuss ideas; average minds discuss events; small minds discuss people.
    He who loses money, loses much; he who loses a friend, loses much more; he who loses faith, loses all.
    Beautiful young people are accidents of nature, but beautiful old people are works of art.
    Learn from the mistakes of others. You can’t live long enough to make them all yourself.
    Friends, you and me. . . you brought another friend. . . and then there were three. . . we started our group. . . our circle of friends. . . and like that circle. . . there is no beginning or end. . .
    Yesterday is history.
    Tomorrow is a mystery.
    Today is a gift. That is why they call it the present.

    Eleanor Roosevelt
    We few, we happy few, we band of brothers;
    For he to-day that sheds his blood with me 
    Shall be my brother.
    From Shakespeare's Henry V, 1598
     And these few precepts in thy memory 
    Look thou character. Give thy thoughts no tongue, 
    Nor any unproportion'd thought his act. 
    Be thou familiar, but by no means vulgar: 
    Those friends thou hast, and their adoption tried, 
    Grapple them unto thy soul with hoops of steel; 
    But do not dull thy palm with entertainment 
    Of each new-hatch'd, unfledg'd comrade. 
    Beware of entrance to a quarrel; but being in, 
    Bear't that th' opposed may beware of thee. 
    Give every man thine ear, but few thy voice; 
    Take each man's censure, but reserve thy judgment. 
    Costly thy habit as thy purse can buy, 
    But not express'd in fancy; rich, not gaudy; 
    For the apparel oft proclaims the man, 
    And they in France of the best rank and station 
    Are most select and generous, chief in that. 

    Neither a borrower nor a lender be; 
    For loan oft loses both itself and friend, 
    And borrowing dulls the edge of husbandry. 
    This above all- to thine own self be true
    And it must follow, as the night the day, 
    Thou canst not then be false to any man. 
    From Shakespeare's Hamlet, 1599-1602
