Here are some quotes and sayings submitted by our readers over the last months:

"This to will end "

Look to this day
Yesterday is already a dream,
And tomorrow is only a vision
But today is well lived which
Makes every yesterday a dream
Of happiness, and every tomorrow
A vision of hope.

"If at first you don't're about average."

If your out-go is bigger than your in-come,
Your upkeep will be your downfall.

Good friends are like stars....You don't always see them, but
you know they are always there.

"He has not learned the first lesson of life who does not, every day, surmount a fear."
