Doc's thoughts for our graduating Seniors:

A list for your refrigerator-read one a day and add one a week-advice, thoughts and wisdom “borrowed” from many folks-all the best, Doc Morris in Israel

· Find something in life that you love doing. If you make a lot of money, that's a bonus, and if you don't, you still won't hate going to work.
· "Choose your friends wisely"
· Each difficult moment has the potential to open your eyes and open your heart.
· When our memories outweigh our dreams, we have grown old.
· The real source of wealth and capital in this new era is not material things ... it is the human mind, the human spirit, the human imagination, and our faith in the future.
· Creativity, as has been said, consists largely of rearranging what we know in order to find out what we do not know. Hence, to think creatively, we must be able to look afresh at what we normally take for granted.
· You have to decide what your highest priorities are and have the courage--pleasantly, smilingly, nonapologetically--to say 'no' to other things. And the way you do that is by having a bigger 'yes' burning inside.
· Voluntary simplicity means going fewer places in one day rather than more, seeing less so I can see more, doing less so I can do more, acquiring less so I can have more.
· Don't ask what the world needs. Ask what makes you come alive, and go do it. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive.
