No point in living if you have no purpose....I have lots of purposes, for instance, I'm just about to go pick up my grandchildren from school.

Hard work spotlights the character of people:

some turn up their sleeves,
some turn up their noses,
and some don't turn up at all.

Find out what you don't do well,

Challenges are what make life interesting;

Overcoming them is what makes life meaningful.

It is better to suffer wrong than to do it, and happier to be sometimes cheated than not to trust.

There are some great ones here. I particularly like Rufus's:

Find out what you don't do well,

then don't do it.

The smallest good deed is better than the best good intention!

Everything happens to everybody sooner or later if there is time enough.
