        21.       Love is strengthened by working through conflicts together.
        22.       The best thing parents can do for their children is to love each other.
        23.       Harsh words break no bones but they do break hearts.
        24.       To get out of a difficulty, one usually must go through it.
        25.       We take for granted the things that we should be giving thanks for.
        26.       Love is the only thing that can be divided without being diminished.
        27.       Happiness is enhanced by others but does not depend upon others.
        28.       You are richer today if you have laughed, given or forgiven.
        29.       For every minute you are angry with someone, you lose 60 seconds of happiness that you can never get back.
        30.       Do what you can, for who you can, with what you have, and where you are.
        31.       THE BEST GIFTS TO GIVE
                  To your friend           -      loyalty;
                  To your enemy            -      forgiveness;
                  To your boss             -      service;
                  To a child               -      a good example;
                  To your parents          -      gratitude and devotion;
                  To your mate             -      love and faithfulness;
                  To all men and women -          charity; and
                  To your God              -      your life.                                             Author Unknown
