    “Be soft. Do not let the world make you hard. Do not let pain make you hate. Do not let the bitterness steal your sweetness. Take pride that even though the rest of the world may disagree, you still believe it to be a beautiful place.” – Kurt Vonnegut

    This is my favorite because it’s easy to let the world take your joy if you DON’T have some way to keep your optimism on top, and you are around negative people (like your spouse :>). I refuse to believe that life sucks – because it IS what you MAKE it…and my world is evolving every day 🙂
