Wisdom for Future Generations: 

"Make sure to recycle. Earth is getting destroyed by mankind. There is too much junk (plastic) on shelves just to make a buck."

"Go to school, get educated, go as far as you can. Anything is possible if you want it bad enough."

"Love yourself and be good to yourself."

"Water is better than pop. Years ago, I never ever thought we'd be paying for water, but here we are."

"Never ever start smoking. It is so bad for your health."
