A successful marriage is work and takes true commitment to the other person. It’s very important to have fun together. Plan a successful relationship; spend one day or evening, each week with just your spouse. Always, hold hands and tell the other, that you love them. Never hang up the phone without saying; “I love you,” this could be the last thing you ever say to them and you’ll be glad you did. Most off all just have fun!

If it falls your lot to be a street sweeper, sweep streets like Michelangelo painted pictures, like Shakespeare wrote poetry, like Beethoven composed music; sweep streets so well that all the host of heaven and earth will have to pause and say, “Here lived a great street sweeper, who swept his job well.” ~ MARTIN LUTHER KING
