"Do not handicap your children by making their lives easy." - Robert A. Heinlein My parents made sure that I could take care of my own, stuff wasn't handed to me. I see kids today, and worry not only for their future but for mine as well.
"Life is Too Short to spend time with people who suck the happiness out of you" As Dr.Wayne Dyer always says" one of the first things you have to do to start on the path of the life you want, is to REMOVE yourself from the presence of negative people.
Bruce Lee quote - If you always put limits on everything you do, physical or anything else, it will spread into your work and into your life. There are no limits. There are only plateaus, and you must not stay there, you MUST GO BEYOND THEM.
