My wife forwarded the message below to me. As did several others. I guess it is quotes from different sources, so the authors are not clear. But it adds up beautifully

There are moments in life when you miss someone so much that you
just want to pick them from your dreams and hug them for real!

When the door of happiness closes, another opens, but often times
we look so long at the closed door that we don't see the one which
has been opened for us.

Don't go for looks; they can deceive. Don't go for wealth; even
that fades away. Go for someone who makes you smile because it takes
only a smile to make a dark day seem bright. Find the one that
makes your heart smile.

Dream what you want to dream; go where you want to go; be what you
want to be, because you have only one life and one chance to do all
the things you want to do.

May you have enough happiness to make you sweet, enough trials to
make you strong, enough sorrow to keep you human, enough hope to
make you happy.

The happiest of people don't necessarily have the best of
everything; they just make the most of everything that comes along their way.

Love begins with a smile, grows with a kiss and ends with a tear.
The brightest future will always be based on a forgotten past, you
can't go on well in life, until you let go of your past failures and

When you were born, you were crying and everyone around you was
smiling. Live your life so that when you die, you're the one who
is smiling and everyone around you is crying.

Please send this message to those people who mean something to
you, to those who have touched your life in one way or another,to those
who make you smile when you really need it, to those that make you see
the brighter side of things when you are really down, to those who you
want to let them know that you appreciate their friendship.

And if you don't, don't worry, nothing bad will happen to you, you
will just miss out on the opportunity to brighten someone's day
with this message........
