Ordinary riches can be stolen, real riches cannot. In your soul are infinitely precious things that cannot be taken from you. - Oscar Wilde

The point of life is not to get anywhere - it is to notice that you are, and have always been, already there - Neale Donald Walsch

I challenged myself to 30 last year, and scrambled to get them all read. I ended up reading a couple of kids books to finish my goal. I am challenging myself to 30 again this year.

Peace and Many Blessings!
