  • The Best Moments

    (Submitted by Szóka Kóvacs, Hungary)

    Contrary to what we usually believe, the best moments in our lives are not the passive, receptive, relaxing times - although such experiences can also be enjoyable, if we have worked hard to attain them. The best moments usually occur when a person’s body or mind is stretched to the limits in a voluntary effort to accomplish something difficult and worthwhile.
