“Here is a test to find whether your mission on earth is finished:
If you are alive, it isn’t!”
– Richard Bach
an American writer widely known as the author of the hugely popular 1970s best-sellers Jonathan Livingston Seagull, Illusions: The Adventures Of A Reluctant Messiah and others. His books espouse his philosophy that our apparent physical limits and mortality are merely appearance.)

In cleaning out some files (to make space for filing some more – go figure!), I came across my rather large collection of quotes worth saving.  This is one of my favorites.  Gives us quite a message for thought, doesn’t it?

Ok, while I’ve got your attention, here’s another thoughtful quote to reflect on:

“Optimists are right.  So are pessimists.  It’s up to you to choose which you will be.”
– Harvey Mackay
perhaps best known as the author of five business bestsellers, including Swim With the Sharks (Without Being Eaten Alive), Beware the Naked Man Who Offers You His Shirt, and Dig Your Well Before You’re Thirsty. He is a nationally syndicated columnist, and one of America’s most popular business speakers.)

The Cookie Jar (<– click to download PDF file) my personal collection of powerful inspirational quotations (in a PDF slide show format) that are offered as “free cookies” (see the earlier post on Cookie Monsters for a definition of “free cookies”) for anyone looking for a daily lift of spirit and positive action focus on their lives. They have served me well all through this transplant experience and these many years after and are my “free cookie” gift to other CM’s and “would be CM’s.” Come back and take one anytime. Enjoy!
