19. Rather than dwelling on the past, we should make the most of today, of the here and now, doing all we can to provide pleasant memories for the future.

24. Having gratitude and not expressing it is like wrapping a gift and not deliver it.
25. We can lift ourselves, and others as well, when we refuse to remain in the realm of negative thought and cultivate within our hearts an attitude of gratitude.
26. Time is a gift, a treasure not to be put aside for the future but to be used wisely in the present.
27. Christmas is the spirit of giving without a thought of getting. It is happiness because we see joy in people. It is forgetting self and finding time for others. It is discarding the meaningless and stressing the true values.
28. Of this be sure: you do not find the happy life – you make it.
