Stop For One Minute

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

I must say I find television very educational. The minute somebody turns it on, I go to the library and read a good book. Groucho Marx

For every minute you are angry you lose sixty seconds of happiness. Ralph Waldo Emerson

Happiness cannot be traveled to, owned, earned, worn or consumed. Happiness is the spiritual experience of living every minute with love, grace, and gratitude. Dennis Watley

Beauty is unbearable, drives us to despair, offering us for a minute the glimpse of an eternity that we should like to stretch out over the whole of time. Albert Camus

Somebody should tell us, right at the start of our lives, that we are dying. Then we might live life to the limit, every minute of every day. Do it! I say. Whatever you want to do, do it now! There are only so many tomorrows. Pope Paul VI
