Something to think about

The mighty oak tree was once a little nut that held its ground.

……………

There’s a fine line between a groove and a rut.

…………..

To the world you might be one person,  but to one person you might be the world.

……………….

May you never forget what is worth remembering and never remember what is worth forgetting.

………………….

Teach us … that we may feel the importance of every day, of every hour, as it passes.   from a prayer by Jane Austen, circa 1811

…………….

That which we elect to surround ourselves with becomes the museum of our soul and the archives of our experiences …   Thomas Jefferson, Architect & U.S. President

………………………….. 

Even if you are on the right track, …  you’ll get run over if you just sit there.   Will Rogers

………………………….

Kindness is the language the blind can see and the deaf can hear

……………………….

Memory is the diary that we all carry about with us. Oscar Wilde

……………………………..

  I expect to pass throught life but once.  If therefore, there can be any kindness I can show, or any good thing I can do to any fellow being, let me do it now and not defer or neglect it, as I shall not pass this way again.    William Penn

…………………………

DECISIONS

      Whenever you’re called on to make up your mind,          

and you’re hampered by not having any idea,   

the best way to solve the dilemma,

you’ll find, is simply by spinning a penny. 

No – not so that chance shall decide the affair

while you’re passively standing there moping;

but the moment the penny is up in the air,

you suddenly know what you’re hoping.” 

Piet Hein, Danish Poet (translation)

  1. Just do it for yourself.

    Love yourself for everybody wants to be loved !

    Treat yourself for everybody wants to be treated !

    Forgive yourself for everybody wants to be forgiven !

    Just do it for yourself for others dont have time for you !

    If you cant love yourself, you cant love others !!

    If you cant forgive yourself, you cant forgive others !!

    If you cant do it for yourself, no body will do it for you !!

    Just do it for yourself..

  2. You brighten my day and bring a smile to my face.
    Thanks for sharing. Gwen
