Friends, I need your help

Greetings again fellow bloggers,
A close friend of mine has finally conceeded that my celebration of Christmas will not end without a present passing from me to them. In order to regain a level of control, the request was that the gift should be;
A card, with a poem (written by me) and an inspirational saying. Now I have no worries making the card or writing the poem, only the little sayings I know don't seem quite.... right.

I have hunted about the internet and am currently bemoaning the loss of my parents book of quotations (since I am no longer living at home) however I still haven't found something that works. I wonder if the followers of these blogs would be interested in putting forward words that have spoken to them and may be appropriate for a person floundering a little with work, though not so much with life!

At the moment I will be putting in Rudyard Kipling's 'IF,' but I think I need something a little more succinct!

I would be very much obliged.

I know what you mean, but it doesn't have to be Christmas-ish.
I found a delightful one said by Winne-The-Pooh;
"Before beginning a Hunt, it is wise to ask someone what you are looking for before you begin looking for it."
Which I really think translates well into modern life, don't you think?

The only thing to do with good advice is pass it on. It is never any use to oneself.

A quotations I have used:

"Start the day with a smile, and get it over with".

"Freedom's just another word for nothing left to lose".

I'll think of some more...

How about: "When one person suffers from a delusion, it is called insanity. When many people suffer from a delusion it is called Religion".

JLS, are you going to tell us which inspirational quotation you used in the end? :-)
Maybe some of your readers would become inspired!

JLS - your Father roared his head off ( well ... not really..) when he read your quote from Winnie-the-Pooh so I guess that seeing he is deemed to be the WOL it would be a good quote to use. Wonder what Trespasses W would say ?
