no rest for the wicked
Some people come into our lives and quickly go.
Some people stay for awhile,
and move our souls to dance.
They awaken us to a new understanding,
leave footprints on our hearts,
and we are never, ever the same.
- Flavia Weedn
Lives of great men all remind us, we can make our lives sublime,
and, departing, leave behind us, footprints on the sands of time.
- Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
Pessimism never won any battle.
- Dwight D. Eisenhower
While it is well enough to leave footprints on the sands of time,
it is even more important to make sure they point in a commendable direction.
- James Branch Cabell
