|Dream as if youíll live forever. Live as if youíll die today -- James Dean|
|It isnít necessary to understand things in order to believe in them.|
|Only distance tests the strength of horses; only time reveals the hearts of men. -Chinese Proverb|
|"Do not stand there at my grave and weep;
I am not there, I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow.
I am the diamond glints on snow.
I am the sunlight on ripened grain.
I am the gentle autumn's rain.
When you awaken in the morning's hush,
I am the swift uplifting rush
Of quiet birds in circled flight.
I am the soft stars that shine at night.
Do not stand there at my grave and cry;
I am not there. I did not die."
