It seems so little time has pasted since legal pads, typewriters, periodical guides, and card catalogs became the tools for research writers. Now we live in a accelerated age of Google, lap-tops, and Wikipedia which places a world of information at our fingertips. Even for the most leisurely writer, like myself, the works we prize the most will be left behind for the world to read hundreds of years from now. The source of information cited below will reside upon a microchip forever.

{You should never trouble anyone about their religion; respect others and their point-of-view, and demand that they respect yours. Love your life, perfect your life, and work to beautify all things in your life. Try to make your life long and make it's purpose serve others. Always give a greeting when meeting or passing a friend, even a stranger, in a lonely-dark place. Show respect to all people no matter the color of their skin, the amount of money in their bank account, or the clothes upon their back; love them all. When you get out of bed in the morning give thanks for the day and the joy of living. If you see no reason to be grateful, the fault lies in you, and only you can change this. And, always live your life so that the fear of death never enters your mind.}

A wise person once said, "To live a good life all you have to do is become less selfish on the way out than you were coming in." It's probably the hardest work of anyone's life. But it is the work that will make you the happiest.

Write from your heart, leave words of encouragement that have the power to heal others, and those works will change the world years from now.
