It is easy to forget the past, to live on auto-pilot. The age we live, our children live in, make decisions almost instantaneous and automatic. We have unprecedented prosperity and opportunity, all we need is the guts to find the path.

“Happiness” is defined not as an emotion, a state of mind, but as a virtues…an action to be pursued with thoughtfulness.

“The purpose of life is not to be happy. It is to be useful, to be honorable, to be compassionate, to have it make some difference that you have lived and lived well.”

Ralph Waldo Emerson
