MOTIVATIONAL QUOTE OF THE DAY

THE BEATLES- CAN’T BUY ME LOVE  ********This I know from the depths of my soul–it is love, not money that makes me whole.  Oh money can buy me many things; fancy cars diamond rings, a house on a hill, or a fur to chase chill, but what good is all of that if I have no one to love?   Sure, I’d have momentary bouts of happiness, but for me?  I’d choose love any day.*******
