SERIOUS.

Albert Einstein

“Great spirits have always encountered violent oppression from mediocre minds.”  Albert Einstein

Albert Schweitzer

“Ethics cannot be based upon our obligations toward [people], but they are complete and natural only when we feel this Reverence for Life and the desire to have compassion for and to help all creatures insofar as it is in our power. I think that this ethic will become more and more recognized because of its great naturalness and because it is the foundation of a true humanism toward which we must strive if our culture is to become truly ethical. ”   Albert Schweitzer

“In everyone’s life, at some time, our inner fire goes out. It is then burst into flame by an encounter with another human being. We should all be thankful for those people who rekindle the inner spirit.”  Albert Schweitzer

Aldous Huxley

“But the man who comes back through the ‘door in the wall’ will never be quite the same as the man who went out. He will be wiser but less cocksure, happier but less self-satisfied, humbler in acknowledging his ignorance yet better equipped to understand the relationship of words to things, of systematic reasoning to the unfathomable Mystery which he tries, forever vainly, to comprehend.”  Aldous Huxley

“It’s a little embarassing to have spent one’s entire life pondering the human situation and find oneself in the end with nothing more profound to say than try to be a little nicer.” Aldous Huxley

Alex Osborn

“Creative ideas reside in people’s minds but are trapped by fear or rejection. Create a judgment-free environment and you’ll unleash a torrent of creativity.”   Alex Osborn

Aria E. Appleford

“I looked without.  And the world taught me.  I leaned to compete, how to accumulate things and earn the praises of men.  I learned of science and medicine and art.  I learned of history, of both terrible and great men and their achievements, and still I could not fashion wings.

I looked within.  And God taught me.  I learned of love, tolerance and compassion.  I learned to understand my dark and to celebrate my light.  I learned truth.  I faced my fears and I found peace.  I found my wings and flew.”  Aria E. Appleford

“Now I pray for the courage to live in a world undefined.  I pray for the courage to find my way, to grow and understand.  I pray for the integrity to know who I am and to understand my connection to the world around me and my Father in Heaven.  I pray for the courage to be able to stand alone, undefined and misunderstood by perhaps everyone but myself and God.”   Aria E. Appleford

Brenda MacIntyre

“Every breath is an opportunity to receive and let go. I receive love and I let go of pain.” Brenda MacIntyre

Carlos Castaneda

“Before you embark on any path ask the question, does this path have a heart? If the answer is no, you will know it and then you must choose another path. The trouble is that nobody asks the question. And when a man finally realizes that he has taken a path without a heart the path is ready to kill him.”  Carlos Castaneda

Carrie Bradshaw

“Later that day I got to thinking about relationships. There are those that open you up to something new and exotic, those that are old and familiar, those that bring up lots of questions, those that bring you somewhere unexpected, those that bring you far from where you started, and those that bring you back. But the most exciting, challenging and significant relationship of all is the one you have with yourself. And if you can find someone to love the you you love, well, that’s just fabulous.”  Carrie Bradshaw

Christian D. Larson

“Promise Yourself

To be so strong that nothing
can disturb your peace of mind.
To talk health, happiness, and prosperity
to every person you meet.

To make all your friends feel
that there is something in them
To look at the sunny side of everything
and make your optimism come true.

To think only the best, to work only for the best,
and to expect only the best.
To be just as enthusiastic about the success of others
as you are about your own.

To forget the mistakes of the past
and press on to the greater achievements of the future.
To wear a cheerful countenance at all times
and give every living creature you meet a smile.

To give so much time to the improvement of yourself
that you have no time to criticize others.
To be too large for worry, too noble for anger, too strong for fear,
and too happy to permit the presence of trouble.

To think well of yourself and to proclaim this fact to the world,
not in loud words but great deeds.
To live in faith that the whole world is on your side
so long as you are true to the best that is in you. “

Helen Keller

“The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched. They must be felt with the heart.”  Helen Keller

James Henry

“We work in the dark. We do what we can – we give what we have. Our doubt is our passion , and our passion is our task.”  James Henry 

Louis Dorfsman

“Creativity is essentially a lonely art. An even lonelier struggle. To some a blessing. To others a curse. It is in reality the ability to reach inside yourself and drag forth from your very soul an idea.”  Louis Dorfsman

Mahatma Gandhi

“Even if you are in a minority of one, the truth is still the truth.” Gandhi

Mary Manin Morrissey

“The Tao Te Ching says, When I let go of what I am, I become what I might be. When I let go of what I have, I receive what I need. Have you ever struggled to find work or love, only to find them after you have given up? This is the paradox of letting go. Let go, in order to achieve. Letting go is God’s law.”  Mary Manin Morrissey

Ralph Waldo Emerson

“Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could. Some blunders and absurdities no doubt crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day; begin it well and serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense.”  Ralph Waldo Emerson

Spencer Johnson

“Integrity is telling myself the truth. And honesty is telling the truth to other people.” Spencer Johnson

The Wonder Years

“Change is never easy, you fight to hold on, and you fight to let go.” The Wonder Years

HUMOUR

Unknown

“My wife suggested a book for me to read to enhance our relationship. It’s titled, “Women are from Venus, Men are Wrong.””
