A Selection of Akindra's favourites from a column by Regina Brett, 90 years old, of The Plain Dealer, Cleveland , Ohio


Life isn't fair, but it's still good.

When in doubt, just take the next small step.

Life is too short to waste time hating anyone.

You don't have to win every argument. Agree to disagree.

It's OK to get angry with God. He can take it.

When it comes to chocolate, resistance is futile.

Make peace with your past so it won't screw up the present.

Don't compare your life to others. You have no idea what their journey is all about.

Everything can change in the blink of an eye. But don't worry; God never blinks.

Take a deep breath. It calms the mind.

Get rid of anything that isn't useful, beautiful or joyful.

Whatever doesn't kill you really does make you stronger.

It's never too late to have a happy childhood... But the second one is up to you and no one else.

When it comes to going after what you love in life, don't take no for an answer.

Burn the candles, use the nice sheets, wear the fancy lingerie. Don't save it for a special occasion. Today is special.

Be eccentric now. Don't wait for old age to wear purple.

No one is in charge of your happiness but you.

Frame every so-called disaster with these words
'In five years, will this matter?'

Always choose life...

Forgive everyone everything.

What other people think of you is none of your business.

Time heals almost everything. Give time time.

Don't take yourself so seriously. No one else does.

Believe in miracles.

God loves you because of who God is, not because of anything you did or didn't do.

All that truly matters in the end is that you loved.

Life isn't tied with a bow, but it's still a gift."

Friends are the family that we choose for ourselves.
