08-03:  Summer is  the time when one sheds one’s tensions with one’s clothes, and the right kind of day is jeweled balm for the battered spirit.   ~ Ada Louise Huxtable 

08-04:  Each of us can make the path smoother for the people who follow — enabling them to push the envelope of success and achievement even further.   ~ Hazel O’Leary

08-05:  I’ll take an earnest person over a hip person every time, because hip is short-term. Earnest is long-term.   ~ Randy Pausch

 08-06:  America’s health care system is neither healthy, caring, nor a system.   ~ Walter Cronkite

 08-07:  In the final analysis, our most basic common link is that we all inhabit this small planet. We all breathe the same air. We all cherish our children’s future. And we are all mortal.     ~ John F. Kennedy

08-08:  Words are a form of action, capable if influencing the future.   ~ Ingrid Bengis

08-15:  Even the most ordinary life is a mystery, if you look close enough.   ~ Kennedy Fraser

08-16:  We have for a full lifetime taught our children to be go-getters. Can we now say to them  that, if they want to be happy, they must be go-givers?   ~ Mario Cuomo

08-17:  There are always a lot of people so afraid of rocking the boat that they stop rowing. We can never get ahead that way.   ~ Harry S Truman

08-18:  As life is action and passion, it is required that we should share the passion of our time at  the peril of being judged not to have lived.   ~ Oliver Wendell Holmes

08-19:  Too many people go through life complaining about their problems. I’ve always believed that,   if you took one-tenth the energy you put into complaining and applied it to solving the problem, you’d be surprised at how well things can work out.   ~ Randy Pausch

08-20:  Go around asking a lot of questions. Only through curiosity can we discover opportunities.     ~ Clarence Birdseye  

08-21:  In youth we learn; in age we understand.   ~ Marie Von Ebner-Eschenbach  

08-22:  The expansion of knowledge makes for an expansion of faith, and the widening of the  horizons of the mind the widening of belief.   ~ Norman Cousins

08-31:  Ask questions.   ~ Susan Sarandon
