Life is a lot like a coin. You can spend it any way you wish, but you can only spend it once. Choosing one thing over all the rest through your life is a difficult thing to do. Life places before us, hundreds of possibilities, but each of us must decide what priority takes first place...

Commenting on the Bible, Ronald Reagan once said: ''I have wondered at times what the Ten Commandments would have looked like if Moses had run them through the U.S. Congress.''
