I love quotes; motivational, inspirational, whatever!

I came across this one this morning…

This sums up the majority of people from the neighborhood.

“Nothing’s impossible for when my chin is on the ground I pick myself up, dust myself off and start all over.” -Dorothy Fields

  2. I haven’t posted here in a long time. Life and obligations got in the way, I suppose.
    I think Robert Frost said it best “…knowing how way leads on to way, I doubted if I should ever come back…”

    I too like a good quote. (And I always try to cite attribution, when possible.) Here are a few of my favorites:

    *** “Patience is power. Patience is not an absence of action; rather it is “timing.” It waits on the right time to act, for the right principles and in the right way.” (Fulton J. Sheen)

    *** “If you have built castles in the air, your work need not be lost; that is where they should be. Now put the foundations under them.”
    (Henry David Thoreau)…………..(I often re-read this while raising my children.)

    (As someone who has spent more than a few hours on trout streams):

    *** “Many men go fishing all of their lives without knowing that it is not fish they are after.”
    (Henry David Thoreau)

    *** “There are really only two things we can give our children; the first is Roots, and the second—Wings.”
    (Hodding Carter)

    *** “Whatever prepares you for death enhances life.”
    (Stephen Levine, who has done more research on death and dying than perhaps anyone else, including Elizabeth Kubler Ross)

    *** “Don’t limit a child to your own learning, for he was born in another time.” (an old Rabbinic saying)

    *** “If you aim to dispense with method, learn method. If you aim at facility, work hard. If you aim for simplicity, master complexity.”
    (The Way of Chinese Painting)

    *** “We must embrace pain and burn it as fuel for our journey.”
    Kenji Miyazawa)…..(A nugget I have often re-read for myself.)

    There are so many more, of course. But I’ll leave you with just one more:

    *** “Some men have a little larceny in them, and some have a lot…”
    (My Dad)

    Great job, Steven! Hope all is well with you. Thanks!
