When I stand before God at the end of my life, I would hope that I would not have a single bit of talent left, and could say, “I used everything you gave me.” ~Erma Bombeck
I want to be able to look back at my life and say I used up all my talents, loved as deeply and as honestly as I possibly could, and tried to make a vital difference to those around me.
What a life to remember…to be able to embrace everything around us–cherish those fine moments with loved ones…to laugh and to dream.
I cannot imagine anything finer.
“Use those talents you have. You will make it. You will give joy to the world. Take this tip from nature: The woods would be a very silent place if no birds sang except those who sang best.” — Bernard Meltzer
