The future depends on what we do in the present.~Mahatma Gandhi

Take time to work-
It is the price of success
Take time to think-
It is the source of power
Take time to play-
It is the secret of perpetual youth
Take time to read-
It is the fountain of wisdom
Take time to be friendly-
It is the road to happiness
Take time to love and be loved-
It is the nourishment of the soul
Take time to share-
It is too short a life to be selfish
Take time to laugh-
It is the music of the heart
Take time to dream-
It is hitching your wagon to a star.
