Wise words

The following came in an e-mail:
1] Prayer is not a "spare wheel"  that you pull out when in trouble; it is a "steering wheel" that directs us in the right path throughout life. 
2] Do you know why a car's WINDSHIELD is so large and the rear view mirror is so small?  Because our PAST is not as important as our FUTURE.  So, look ahead and move on. 
3] Friendship is like a BOOK. It takes a few seconds to burn, but it takes years to write. 
4] All things in life are temporary. If going well enjoy it, they will not last forever. If going wrong don't worry, they can't last long either. 
5] Old friends are like Gold! New friends are Diamonds! If you get a Diamond, don't forget the Gold Because to hold a Diamond, you always need a base of Gold! 
6] Often when we lose hope and think this is the end, GOD smiles from above and says, "Relax, sweetheart, it's just a bend, not the end! 
7] When GOD solves your problems, you have faith in HIS abilities; when GOD doesn't solve your problems HE has faith in your abilities. 
8] A blind person asked St.  Anthony: "Can there be anything worse than losing eye sight?"
He replied: "Yes, losing your vision." 
9] When you pray for others, God listens to you and blesses them; and sometimes, when you are safe and happy, remember that someone has prayed for you. 
10] WORRYING does not take away tomorrows.
