    Right now mine would have to be
    "lifes a dance you learn as you go
    sometimes you lead sometimes you follow
    don't worry about what you don't know
    lifes a dance you learn as you go
    the longer i live the more i believe
    you do have to give if you want to receive
    there's a time to listen a time to talk
    and you might have to craw even after you walk
    had sure things blow up in my face
    seen the long shot win the race
    been knocked down by the slamming door
    picked myself up and came back for more"
    from John Michael Montgomery's song Lifes A Dance

    "Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid." John 14:27.

    This has brought me immense comfort over the past few months.

    A happy life consists not in the absence, but in the mastery of hardships.

    "You can't control the way others behave. You can only control how you react to it."

    and one of my all time favorites when face with a seemingly insurmountable task: "How do you eat an elephant?"

    (of course the answer is "one bite at a time")

    ... to forgive, divine.

    My father used to say this one a lot, it's Hebrew. It goes: Mi hu haashir, hasameach b'chelko.
    Who is rich? Who is happy with his lot.

    I was thinking of this thread the other day when this saying popped into my head (hebrew again).
    Mi hu hachacham?
    Halomed mikol adam.

    (it rhymes!)
    It means:
    Who is the wisest one?
    Who learns from everyone.
