“Don’t take issue with the size of the rewards you’ve received in life, but strive to be content with the size of your pasture and rejoice when an unexpected plum falls your way.” – Barbara’s paraphrase of a thought gleaned from Cold River (Read her story of this book here.)
“Make sure to get what you like, or you will be forced to like what you get.” – Mark Twain
