You learn to speak
                            by speaking,

                            to study
                            by studying,

                    to run
                    by running,

            to work
            by working;

                            and just so,

                            you learn to love
                                    by loving.

    All those who think to learn in any other way
                    deceive themselves.

If love touches you once,
it touches you forever.
True love never dies,
and lives on and on.
5


                              I ask God:
                'How much time do I have left?'
                              and God replies:
                 'Enough to make a difference'. 6


You never lose by loving.
You always lose by holding back.

_______________________________________________
You will find,
as you look back upon your life,
    are the moments when you have done things
    in the spirit of love.
1


May you find
serenity
and tranquility
in a world
you may not
always understand.

May the pain
you have known
and the conflict
you have experienced,
       give you the strength
               to walk through life,

                facing each new situation
                        with courage and optimism.

               Always know
       that there are those
whose love and understanding
will always be there,
even when you feel most alone.

May you discover
enough goodness
in others
to believe
in a world of peace.

May a kind word,
a reassuring touch,
a warm smile
be yours
every day of your life,
and may you give these gifts
as well as receive them.

Remember the sunshine
       when the storm seems unending.

               
Teach love
       to those who know hate,
and let that love embrace you
as you go into the world.

May the teaching of those you admire
become part of you,
so that you may call upon them.

Remember - those whose lives you have touched
and who have touched yours
are always a part of you,
even if the encounters were less
than you would have wished.

      It is the content of the encounter
      that is more important
      than its form.

      May you not become too concerned
              with material matters,
              but instead
              place immeasurable value
                       
on the goodness in your heart.

                              Find time in each day
                      to
see the beauty
              and love
      in the world around you.

Realize that each person has limitless abilities,
but each of us is different in our own way.

What you may feel
you lack in one regard
may be more than compensated for
in another.

What you feel you lack in the present
may become one of your strengths
in the future.

May you see your future
as one filled with
promise
and possibility.

Learn to view
everything
as a worthwhile experience.

May you find
enough inner strength
to determine your
own worth by yourself,
and not be dependent
on another's judgments
of your accomplishments.

May you always feel loved. 2
Love, if you have it;
you don't need
to have anything else,

and if you don't have it;
it doesn't matter much
what else you have.
