On... who is your real FRIEND?

Blog quote #1086...  
"Friendship isn't about who you have known the's about who came, and never left your side. -Unknown-
Ohh is that powerful or what?  Also right square on the money. Reminds us in a strange way  of  a  'quality, not quantity' definition..

The Radiance...of Kindness

Blog quote #1085...  
"Kindness is like beautifies everything it covers." -Kahlil Gibran-
We'll let this one stand on it's own. Nothing to add here, as it's perfect.

Play on words- MODERATION

Blog quote #1084...  
"Even moderation ought not to be practiced to excess." -Anonymous-
Enjoy the play on words here. True statement though--even moderation, should be moderated. 
In other words, you have to let your hair down occasionally. The new year is coming- great time to live a little on the wild side and shake things up a bitTallyho!

A deep yet powerful quote...on Excellence

Blog quote #10823...  
"Word by word, the great books are written." -Voltaire, famous French philosopher 18th century-
A very deep quote that could be taken several ways. Even the way that is typed seems like it was crafted by Voltaire over deep musings. 
We think a good interpretation is that everything takes time. Patience is a virtue for sure. And even more so on things of excellence. As someone once quoted, "There is no elevator to have to take the stairs."

Here's what Success hinges on...

Blog quote #1082...  
"Under normal conditions any man's success hinges about 5% what others do for him and about 95% on what he does." -James Worsham-
Many thoughts came to mind here immediately. First was to get into a good habit of not blaming others. Blaming is useless, doesn't help matters, and many times unfounded. Next, we get what we deserve with the efforts  we put in--generally speaking. Much of our destiny, we play a major part in (along with our creator). 
A third thought was the line 'Do it yourself.' Not sure about you, but I've found that if we frequently rely on others, sadly they will let us down more often than we'd like to admit. Thus the old DIY kicks in again--being in charge of our final fate.
What thoughts did you think of, when reading this quote?

When helping--here is WHERE TO START

Blog quote #1081...  
"Never worry about numbers. Help one person at a time, and always start with the person nearest you." -Mother Teresa-
This statement by MT proves that we don't always have to do big or take on monster huge tasks. Sometimes, a little at a time is the best progress. 
Also, don't take on so much( the old bite off more than you can chew) that you end up doing nothing. Take what is within our capabilities and just make progress. And sometimes, that means  just one person at a time. 
Progress of any type is good progress.

Best gift of all?

Blog quote #1080...

Not much to add here. Well done, Burton!

The price of Success...

Blog quote #1078...  
"The man who is anybody, and who does anything, is surely going to be criticized, vilified, and misunderstood. This is part of the penalty for greatness, and every man understands too, that it is no proof of greatness." -Elbert Hubbard-
If you've never heard of Elbert Hubbard, he is the author of some of life's most  interesting quotes. We suggest you look into him. So much wisdom and truthful words  come from this man's mind.
We interpret this statement as basically--It's easy to not be criticized, just sit in the stands, follow the crowds, take no risks, and flow along the river of life. But then, what fun would that be? 
As someone once said, "Don't be afraid to go out on a limb occasionally- for that is where the ripest fruit lies." Hmm...

Powerful Guidance here...

Blog quote #1077...  
"Preach the gospel at all times...if necessary, use words." -St. Francis of Assisi-
Is St. Francis subtly asking us to stop talking and start doing? This is brilliant and shrewd, indeed!

A simple path to Happiness...

Blog quote #1076...  
"Love one another and  you will be happy. It is as simple and as difficult as that." -Michael Leunig-
Is that perfect or what? Simple yet difficult.  'Just love one another'  seems like anyone and everyone can comprehend this concept. But doing it appears to be a tad more challenging. 
Regardless, when you love one another, life is so much more harmonious. May we all shoot for that more often.

Extra Unnecessary Clutter...

Blog quote #1075...  
"These mountains that you are carrying, you were only supposed to climb." -Najwa Zebian-
How much extra junk are you carrying around in your mind/on your back, today? Perhaps it's the appropriate time--to let it go?

Marriage, Pain, and Jewelry...

Worrying what others think...( a no no)

Blog quote #1073...  
"No matter where you are in life, you'll save a lot of time by not worrying too much about what other people think about you. The earlier in your life that you can learn that, the easier the rest of it will be." -Sophia Amoruso-
Not much to add here, other than THANK YOU Sophia, for the excellent tutelage here. 
If we are honest, most spend far too much time worrying what others think. Ironically many times others are so self-absorbed that they really don't ponder much, at all, about us(or care) for that matter. Hmm...

Light at the end of the tunnel...

Blog quote #1072...  
"Although the world is full of suffering, it is also full of the overcoming of it." -Helen Keller-
The best part is- each and every one of us gets to partake in the helping of others to overcome suffering. We might all as well start today...

The best win-win situation (The Dog)...

Blog quote #1071...  
"He is your friend,your partner, your defender,your dog.You are his life, his love, his leader.He will be yours faithful and true, to the last beat of his heart. You owe it to him- to be Worthy of Such Devotion." -Unknown-
Be worthy. They are worth every part of  it. 
Here's the most amazing misconception on planet Earth...Dogs think they have the greatest deal in the world. The best part is they have the second best deal. We the owner have the best deal. 
It is however, a nice win-win situation for both.

On Being DECISIVE...

Blog quote #1070...  
"Be decisive. Right or wrong, make a decision. The road of life is paved with flat squirrels who simply could not make a decision." -Unknown-
Very sad but very true. After all, we are supposed to learn from the mistakes  of ourselves and others around us.

On Jumping to no

Blog quote #1068...  
"Better the last smile than the first laughter."-British proverb-
Interesting. We took this as saying... "Don't jump the gun, and see how things play out." "Be careful not to leap to conclusions or  worse yet, to prejudge the outcome." 
Take it all in, and reserve comment( or in this case, laughter) until all the data and results are in. Savvy advice here, no?
