    Ask an editor of a weekly newspaper.

Time waits for no one.

Treasure every moment you have.

You will treasure it even more when you can share it with someone special.

Cherish things while you still have them, before they're gone,

and you realize how precious they really are. Life can only be understood backwards,

but it must be lived forwards. Everything in life is temporary.

So if things are going well, enjoy it because it won't last forever.

And if things are going badly, don't worry because that won't last forever either.

Destiny is not a matter of chance, it is a matter of choice;

it is not a thing to be waited for, it is a thing to be achieved.
