On TRUE Friends...

Blog quote #1276... 
"One friend who understands your tears is much more valuable than a lot of friends who only know your smile." -Anonymous-
Only one question: Who is there for you, when you need it most? 
Be on the lookout for the ones who will help lift the furniture, on moving day, or help out  during a break up. Take note the ones who just want to join the party, or jump in the limo for the wine tour. (FYI the best,  can do both...)
That's my view...what say you?

Thee most useful gift is...?

Blog quote #1275... 
"I think, at a child's birth, if a mother could ask a fairy godmother to endow it with thee most useful gift, that gift could be curiosity." -Eleanor Roosevelt-
Aaah...the critical importance, of curiosity.  What other attributes do you find to be very important in a person's treasury chest of talents?

Making lots of small but impactful differences

Blog quote #1274... 
"We must not, in trying to think about how we can make a big difference, ignore the small daily differences we can make, which over time, add up to big differences that we often cannot foresee." -Marion Wright Edelman-
An astutely written statement that to us says: While everyone would like to make a GIANT impact, most stuff in life gets done with the smaller acts. 
Rather than swinging for the fences all the time, try to hit as many singles and doubles as we can. Rather than going for the big monetary score,  many pennies, nickels, and dimes can eventually snowball to big payouts.  
Let's go for the good solid results and not all the glitter and glamour.

Cars and Manners-what they have in common...

Blog quote #1273... 
"A car is useless in New York, essential everywhere else. The same with good manners." -Mignon McLaughlin-
Found this humorous for a Thursday afternoon.

On INTEGRITY...

Blog quote #1272... 
"If you have integrity, nothing else matters. If you don't have integrity, nothing else matters." -Alan Simpson-
At first look this statement appears to contradict itself. In actuality, it's brilliantly  worded and fully speaks for itself.

Some commentary, about the Silent Man...

Blog quote #1271... 
"Too often, the strong, silent man is silent--because he does not know what to say." -Winston Churchill-
Possible truth to this? Could be. Do we overthink things on occasion? Of course. Too much credit for others at times? Quite likely.  

Hats off to Churchill's wit and his wisdom; always refreshing, a good read, and warrants a chuckle or two, more often than not.

Good food for thought-- on Changing People's Mind

Blog quotes #1269 & 1270... 
"You have not converted a man because you have silenced him." -John Morley, English statesman-
"For those who believe, no proof is necessary, for those who don't, no proof is possible." -Stuart Chase-
Two very solid quotes above, that explain how difficult is it to change a man's mind. And the first is basically stating if one has power or the upper hand over another, the lesser person may stay silent, yet it didn't sway their opinion. Good food for thought.
