Quote #125, My Thoughts and YOUR thoughts

I love Quotes. I love them because they make me think. What does the quoter mean? Why did he/she write this? Is there a message to get through to the reader/the world? What did YOU initially think when you read it?

Here goes blog quote #125....

"Good thoughts bear good fruit, bad thoughts bear bad fruit--- and man is his own gardener."
-James Allen-

Here's an idea. Print this off and write on it, 2 columns, 'good' and 'bad'. Try to keep track of what's going on in that noggin of yours for 10 minutes, an hour, a full day. I say TRY because it is much more difficult than you can imaging. In a single day, the mind probably has close to 2417 thoughts (that's a total guess). So... What are YOU Thinking?

That's my view... What Say You?

I like this one. I try to keep optimistic god thoughts about everyone. When people get angered they generally have bad negative thoughts.As our own gardners of our own fruits it is good to make sure the fruit is always good. Thanks to God it will always be!

I think you're right. We're responsible for weeding out our own bad thoughts. Some of us have a tendency to want others to constantly "pick us up", but in the end, we all come to a place where we are alone with our own bad thoughts, and a good portion of what defines us as people depends on what we do in that moment, with no encourager, and no judge.
