Choose Life 1973’s Roe v. Wade decision was billed as a way to guarantee women’s rights—but what about the right to be free from the coercion to abort their offspring? Scientific surveys have confirmed that most women are having abortions they don’t want. Is that a mark of women’s freedom?”  (Maria Vitale, public relations director for Pennsylvania Pro-Life Federation)

1. “I don’t think of all the misery but of the beauty that still remains.”    (Anne Frank)

2. Growing old is like being increasingly penalized for a crime you haven’t committed.  Anthony Powell (1905-2000)

3. Money can’t buy friends, but you get a better class of enemy.  Spike Milligan (b. 1981) 

4. “A good plan is like a road map: it shows the final destination and usually the best way to get there.”  (H. Stanley Judd, Author)

5. “I do not have superior intelligence or faultless looks. I do not captivate a room or run a mile under six minutes. I only succeeded because I was still working after everyone else went to sleep.”  (Greg Evans, Novelist) 

6. Perseverance is a great element of success. If you only knock long enough at the gate, you are sure to wake up somebody.    Longfellow
