My...state of mind...: pensivepensive
My tune: Soundtrack of The Return of the King
“‘If you compare yourself with others, you may become vain or bitter; for always there will be greater and lesser persons than yourself’.”

“‘Enjoy your achievements as well as your plans. Keep interested in your own career, however humble; it is a real possession in the changing fortunes of time.

“’Exercise caution in your business affairs, for the world is full of trickery. But let not this blind you to what virtue there is; many persons strive for high ideals, and everywhere life is full of heroism.

“Be yourself, especially do not feign affection,Neither be cynical about love; for in the face of all aridity and disenchantment it is as perennial as the grass’.”

… be at peace with God, whatever you conceive Him to be. And whatever your labors and aspirations in the noisy confusion of life, keep peace in your soul. With all its sham, drudgery and broken dreams; it is still a beautiful world. Be cheerful.”

“Strive to be happy.”
