Don’t go around saying the world owes you a living.  The world owes you nothing.  It was here first.”   —   Mark Twain

(He’s 100% correct, of course.  You can’t carry around that:  I didn’t ask to be born attitude, you may have once had as a child.  No one asks to be born, and very few ask to die.  It just happens.  It’s up to each of us to do something with our life.  If you weren’t born into some great wealth, you better be prepared to work for your living.  That’s just how it is.  Life isn’t always “fair”.  It can be hard, or it can be easy.  It all depends on how you approach it.  Instead of looking at the bad and asking:  Why me?  Look at the good and ask:  Why not me?  One last thing, folks.  Dollars to donuts Twain said this as an old man.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
