HUMAN INTERACTION: "Did you know that cigarettes are a shield against meaningful interaction with people?"

Movie quote from: 200 Cigarettes (1999) - Kevin (Paul Rudd)Smoke

Never say that things don't change.  Even the Germans have decided to recognize the problems of second-hand smoke.  Cigarettes will still be allowed in the pubs and bars but politicians have conceded that perhaps smoking in schools and public sites is not good for the health of the nation.

PROACTIVE LIVING: "Every show is your last show. That's my philosophy."

Movie quote from: A Prairie Home Companion (2006) - G.K. (Garrison Keillor)  

 In his movie, 'A Prairie Home Companion' (2006), Garrison Keillor casually comments that, "Every show is your last show. That's my philosophy." This is a wise way to view the world. Once you appreciate that nothing lasts forever, you are more likely to make sure you get full value out of each remaining day.

CONFIDENCE: "The party's where you are."

FEELINGS: "Worrying is like a rocking chair. It gives you something to do but it doesn't get you anywhere."

Movie quote from: Van Wilder (2002) - Van Wilder (Ryan Reynolds)

Rocking Chair
Worry is fantasy done poorly.  It serves no value to anticipate things that may never happen.  Yet worry remains one of the biggest energy-suckers today.  Lucky for me, I learned a perspective that always helps to tuck all present-day worries away.

HUMANITY:"The time to make up your mind about people is never."

Reel Life Wisdom Quote from: The Philadelphia Story (1940) - Tracy Lord (Katherine Hepburn)

acceptancePeople are dynamic beings. We change and adapt over time. For some, this change is unfortunate.  Personality and spirit can decay during a streak of disquieting events and/or negative influences. For others, the change over time is great. Years of positive people and free-spiritedness can puts a real snap back into a person's step.  Whatever another person experiences, we must accept that they will change over time.
