As you move through life and encounter problems or anything you question, ask yourself: WWBD (What Would Bob Do.) He always found the best and kindest solution to everything.
I shall pass this way but once; any good that I can do or kindness I can show to any human being; let me do it now. Let me not defer nor neglect it, for I shall not pass this way again. Etienne de Grellet
