Kahlil Gibran :
Your children are not your children. They are the sons and daughters of Life's longing for itself. They came through you but not from you. And though they are with you yet they belong not to you. You may give them your love but not your thoughts, For they have their own thoughts. You may house their bodies but not their souls, For their souls dwell in the house of tomorrow, which you cannot visit, not even in your dreams. You may strive to be like them, but seek not to make them like you, For life goes not backward nor tarries with yesterday. You are the bows from which your children as living arrows are sent forth.
[Kahlil Gibran (1883-1931), Lebanese-U.S. poet and painter. "On Children," Prophet, 1923.]

When, at rare intervals, some thought visits one, as perchance he is walking on a railroad, then, indeed, the cars go by without his hearing them. But soon, by some inexorable law, our life goes by and the cars return.

Billie Jean King :
I've never cared that much for cementing my place in history. Sports is so transitory, so ephemeral. It just seems like so much nonsense comparing me to Helen Wills Moody or Suzanne Lenglen or anybody else from some other time. One lesson you learn from sports is that life goes on without you.
[Billie Jean King (b. 1943), U.S. tennis player. Billie Jean, ch. 2 (1982). Moody (b. 1905) was a champion tennis player in the 1920s and 30s, Lenglen (1899- 1938) in the 1920s.]

I feel nothing but the accursed happiness I have dreaded all my life long: the happiness that comes as life goes, the happiness of yielding and dreaming instead of resisting and doing, the sweetness of the fruit that is going rotten.
[George Bernard Shaw (1856-1950), Anglo-Irish playwright, critic. Captain Shotover, in Heartbreak House, act 2.]

Buisiness can be likened to a comercial dryer at the luanndromat. round and round life goes, never stopping, and things heat up. saying yes is like adding yet another quarter to that already heavy load, taking up even more of your time. it is not until you run out of 'quarters' that you can lighten your load.
[people should be purposeful, not 'busy'.]
Soha Zaki :
