When you are tempted to say,
"Oh, if I have to, I'll skip my golf game

"I'd love to watch your game today, Sandy,"
or the honesty to decline the request gracefully.
Martyrdom doesn't create happiness
for any of the parties involved.
An honest, "No" is preferable to a coerced "Yes."

to maintain it is really difficult,
because you are doing something against nature.

Plant trees for your great-grandchildren -
for future generations.
Create the legacy of a better world.
Leave this world a better place than you found it.

to represent the kind of legacy
you want to leave to future generations.

We need silence to be able to touch souls.
