You can tell a person, not by what they say they are gratitude for, but how they respect what they claim to be grateful for." Original quote contributed by Veronica Davina from her Mom, Mrs. Donna Priscott

"Love doesn't die a natural death. Love has to be killed, either by neglect or narcissism. Those guilty of these two crimes of the heart always hide behind excuses convenient; too ashamed, lacking in integrity and courage to face the truth. To them, it is always something other than their own actions, desires and self-importance that dictate circumstances. For these people, so blind to truth, true love can never be fully experienced for they have never really given of themselves all that they are."
"To have integrity one must be consistently honest and trustworthy in everything one does...When you have integrity, people know you will do what you know is right...Its knowing what you have to do without someone telling you to do it. It is the core of a person's-and a company's- reputation."
