Life is too short to nurse one’s misery.  Hurry across the lowlands so that you may spend more time on the mountaintop.

From Philippians 2:14-15:  “Do all things without murmuring and arguing, so that you may be blameless and innocent, children of God without blemish in the midst of a crooked and perverse generation, in which you shine like stars in the world.”

Be such a man, and live such a life, that if every man were such as you, and every life a life like yours, this earth would be God’s paradise.

From Philippians 2:4:  “Let each of you look not to your own interests, but to the interests of others.”
