Do we want to hear it or not?

Blog quote #1235... 
"It's a rare person who wants to hear, what he doesn't want to hear." -Dick Cavett-
Let's 'hear it'- for people who want the good and the not so good news. The folks who say "Give it to me straight up and let me know where I need improvement, what I need to go to work on." 
It's a rare creature. Certainly refreshing when we find these types. Even better if we can learn from them, and become these types. 
That's my view...what say you?

On Happiness and Misery...

Blog quote #1233... 
"I've learned from experience that the greater part of our happiness or misery, depends on our dispositions and not on our circumstances." -Martha Washington-
A well put statement that mimics the old saying "It's not what happens to us, but HOW we CHOOSE to react to it." In other words, everyone has plenty of good and bad happen to them, but the key is in the attitude taken toward what happens. 
So...yes we do have a decision to make, regarding a choice in that attitude. Thanks Martha!

Why most autobiographies are mostly positive...

Blog quote #1232... 
"An autobiography usually reveals nothing bad about its writer, except his memory." -Humorist Franklin P Jones-
If you think about it, most autobiographies are mostly positive about the writer. This is likely because he/she gets to choose the subject matter to share and discuss. 
Biographies might on the other hand, contain a larger picture of the overall human?  While the quotesmith here is likely drawing some humor,  like all sarcasm and wit, it might be truer than we'd like to think?

Dogs and GOONESSS ( must read!)

Blog quote #1231... 
" All his life he tried to be a good person. Many times however, he failed. For after all, he was only human. He wasn't a dog." -Charles Schultz- 
We always said dogs are the closest thing to God on this planet. They love, they serve,  they are always positive, they care about others, and are incredibly unselfish. They bring great joy, they are faithful, they are gentle, good, and kind. For the spiritual type--take a look at the 9 fruits of the spirit in Galatians 5:22-23. Most of them describe what dogs do on a continuous, daily basis.
Perhaps we humans should study and learn more from our canine playbooks, and then perhaps imitate them a bit more frequently. We often wondered why man can't be man's best friend?
For the record, did you ever notice what doG spelled backwards is? Hmm...

The Powers of Imagination( and everlasting gobstoppers)

Blog quote #1229 +1230... 
"Logic will get you from A to Z. Imagination will get you everywhere." -Albert Einstein-
"There is no life I know to compare to pure imagination. Living there you'll be free--if you truly wish to be." -Willy Wonka   
Wonka also shared "If you want to view paradise, simply look around and view it. Anything you want to, do it! Want to change the world? There's nothing to it."
Logic is a great skill to utilize and have. Imagination takes it to the next level and with imagination, the sky is literally the limit...If anyone knows, it's the Chocolate Factory man!
