Take one day at a time. Forget worrying about 2morrow, cause u will never know if it will come. The trick is to maximise your 24 hours, every single minute and second, live life to the fullest by doing the right things, like caring 4 your neighbours and stop bitching, cause you can't even count the number of hair on your head, least tell what you will face in future.
The mysteries of this earth can be explained, thru "You will reap what u sow".
Decisions you make today, will affect the outcome tommorrow.
Therefore sit down and reflect, do you want to create "pleasant memories", or a life people will dispise, and forget all about you.
Cause that is the only thing you will leave behind, is your "footprint in time".
The Truth lies, by examing the results of its creator. A good tree will produce good fruits and vice versa.

"No wonder Americans hate politics when, year in and year out, they hear politicians make promises that won't come true because they don't even mean them--campaign fantasies that win elections but don't get nations moving again."
--Candidate Clinton, Detroit Economic Club, August 21, 1992
"I am confident that we have the knowledge and the means to make the 21st century the most peaceful, prosperous, interesting time in all human history. The question is whether we have the wisdom and the will."
--President Bill Clinton, from the Dimbleby Memorial Lecture given by the former U.S. President at the Institute of Education in London, December 18, 2001
"America demands and deserves big things from us--and nothing big ever came from being small. Let us remember the timeless wisdom of Cardinal Bernardin, when facing the end of his own life. He said: 'It is wrong to waste the precious gift of time, on acrimony and division.'"
--Second Inaugural Address of President Bill Clinton, January 20, 1997
In the application of Satyagraha, I discovered, in the earliest stages, that pursuit of Truth did not admit of violence being inflicted on one's opponent, but that he must be weaned from error by patience and sympathy. For what appears to be truth to one may appear to be error to the other. And patience means self-suffering. So the doctrine came to mean vindication of Truth, not by infliction of suffering on the opponent but one's own self.
- Gandhi
In this new world, economic strength will be more important than military strength. Nations seeking power through military strength, the development of nuclear weapons, terrorism, or tyrannical governments are mining gold.? They can never hope to match or challenge the military or economic power of the free world led by the US.
Despotic regimes will come to realize it in due course, when they find themselves left behind while free nations prosper and provide a better life for their people. One only has to look at China to see a nation slowly finding a place in the world, not through the strength of the People Liberation Army or Mao Little Red Book, but through the release of the creative entrepreneurial power of the Chinese people. In Vietnam, American businesses are being invited in to repair the economic disaster created by two decades of communism. We should encourage and support these impulses.

I am impressed with our nation present entrepreneurial vitality. Everything I observe affirms my belief in free enterprise. It creates new wealth, generates new jobs, enables people to live good lives, fuels demand, and triggers fresh enterprise, starting the cycle all over again. Government should not interfere with the demonstrated success of the free marketplace, beyond controls to protect public safety and to prevent distortions of competition by either labor or industry.
