Chapter 7, Page 30, Book 17


And as you walk your road,
as you live your life,
relish the road.
And relish the fact
that the road of your life
will probably be a windy road.

Suzan-Lori Parks

on the road


Think big thoughts but relish small pleasures. 

H. Jackson Brown, Jr

The dictionary says that the verb relish means to enjoy something immensely. So we’re to enjoy those windy roads of life.  Roads that twist and turn with every step are not easy ones to travel, but still we are to enjoy them.

Because it’s in the trails that are crooked, winding, lonesome and dangerous that lead to the most amazing view.  


All you need is the plan, the road map, and the courage to press on to your destination. 

Earl Nightingale

Life is a journey down smooth paths, rocky roads and downright treacherous terrain. Joy comes naturally during the easy times of life, but it takes effort to find moments of happiness during adversity. 


If you don't know where you are going, any road will get you there.

 Lewis Carroll

There are moments of joy in even the most painful times of life. Look for them. It can be a baby's smile, a phone call from a friend, a funny TV show, a beautiful sunrise or a sudden summer shower. Open your heart to these moments and relish in them.  

Life is full of pain and sorrow as well as ease and happiness. Those difficult times can make us relish the good times all the more. Embrace your life here, where you are now, and enjoy the journey.


The best path through life is the highway. 

Henri Frederic Amiel

My desire is to RELISH life as long as I have a road to travel (Physically or mentally). I just want to pay attention, so when the test comes I won't fail!
Love from Virginia.

So true we can find joy even in the midst of hard times, we just have to look for it, but it is always there.

'Relish' isn't something I hear so much anymore, but it's a splendid word, indeed. I may have to start incorporating it in my speech. :)

Ms. Parks verse would be a great sampler for a new graduate!
