Words from the Wise:

Catherine Pulsifer - It is balance; we need it. The sad part is that some people pay more attention to their credit than they do to their own balance in life!

Steven R. Covey - Wisdom is your perspective on life, your sense of balance, your understanding of how the various parts and principles apply and relate to each other.

Betsy Jacobson - Balance is not better time management, but better boundary management. Balance means making choices and enjoying those choices.
