to represent the kind of legacy
you want to leave to future generations.

We need silence to be able to touch souls.

in whom is embodied all goodness,

Take time to be friendly.
It is the road to happiness.
Take time to give.
It is too short a day to be selfish.
Take time to work.
It is the price of success.
