A wish for you this season!

Wouldn't dreams be coming true
If we kept the Christmas spirit
All the whole year through?"

Do you wish me a good morning,
or mean that it is a good morning whether I want it or not;

or that it is a morning to be good on?”

Kama

"We create institutions and policies on the basis of the way we make assumptions about us and others. We accept the fact that we will always have poor people around us. So we have had poor people around us. If we had believed that poverty is unacceptable to us, and that it should not belong to a civilized society, we would have created appropriate institutions and policies to create a poverty-free world. "
---Muhammad Yunus

"In a dark moment I ask,
"How can anyone bring a child into this world?"
And the answer rings clear,
"Because there is no other world,
and because the child has no other way into it."

Umaga na...

“Welcome every morning with a smile. Look on the new day as another special gift from your Creator, another golden opportunity to complete what you were unable to finish yesterday. Be a self-starter. Let your first hour set the theme of success and positive action that is certain to echo through your entire day. Today will never happen again. Don't waste it with a false start or no start at all. You were not born to fail.”
---Og Mandino

Para kay Itay!

You may have thought I didn't see,
Or that I hadn't heard,
Life lessons that you taught to me,
But I got every word.

Perhaps you thought I missed it all,
And that we'd grow apart,
But Dad, I picked up everything,
It's written on my heart.

Without you, Dad, I wouldn't be
The man I am today;
You built a strong foundation
No one can take away.

I've grown up with your values,
And I'm very glad I did;
So here's to you, dear father,
From your forever grateful kid.

HAPPY FATHER'S DAY!

At sa pagluha ko, yakap at haplos mo
Sa kandungan mo, payapa ang loob ko..."

And when this world’s insincere

Kahayag

"It's better to light just one little candle,
Than to stumble in the dark.
Better far that you light just one little candle,
All you need's a tiny spark.
If we'd all say a prayer that the world would be free,
The wonderful dawn on the new day we'll see.
And if everyone lit just one little candle,
What a bright world this would be..."
---Perry Como, One Little Candle
