THE POSITIVE SIDE OF LIFE:

Living on Earth is expensive, but it does include a free trip around the sun every year.

How long a minute is depends on what side of the bathroom door you're on.

Birthdays are good for you; more you have, the longer you live.

Happiness comes through doors you didn't even know you left open.

Ever notice that the people who are late are often much jollier than the people who have to wait for them?

Most of us go to our grave with our music still inside of us.

You may be only one person in the world, but you may also be the world to one person.

Some mistakes are too much fun to only make once.

Don't cry because it's over; smile because it happened.

We could learn a lot from crayons: some are sharp, some are pretty, some are dull, some have weird names, and all are different colors....but they all exist very nicely in the same box.

A truly happy person is one who can enjoy the scenery on a detour.

You really think up this kind of things yourself?

Some positive thinking I need to do everyday Feb 21, 2004

You may be only one person in the world, but you may also be the world to one person.

Don't cry because it's over; smile because it happened.

Thanx, Monica!

Much needed on a rainy day like this.

Well, life IS full of choices. One may choose to be happy; one may choose to be miserable. Let me confess, I have made both of these choices so far..., and I have learnt a lot and I am still learning...

Well, actually I had expected yes, no, or something in between.
However, this tells much more. It's clearly yes+
