I'm going to have a vacation!
I'll leave all my housework behind,
And not have to do any cooking;
I'll forget all the daily grind!
I'll bask in the sunshine--don't worry!--
And so all the things that are right;
I'll enjoy myself every minute,
And I'll go to a dance each night!
But when my vacation is over
And I pack my glad rags, alone,
I'll be happy--so very happy!--
For, really, there's no place like home!
~Gertrude Tooley Buckingham, "My Vacation" (1940s)
"Laughter is an instant vacation."
"If you are really thankful, what do you do? You share."

"A goal is a dream with a deadline."
"Every year on your birthday, you get a chance to start new."
"All cruelty springs from weakness."

"There are two kinds of pride, both good and bad. 'Good pride' represents our dignity and self-respect. 'Bad pride' is the deadly sin of superiority that reeks of conceit and arrogance."
~John C. Maxwell
"The purpose exceeds the pain."
"You work enough with someone and you develop a shorthand. You know how he likes to work through the day and he knows where you're vulnerable and where your weaknesses and strengths are, so it makes for a good team, a team that knows who's over there behind your back."
"Knowledge is knowing a tomato is a fruit; wisdom is not putting it in a fruit salad."
