If you allow the economy to determine your choice, you will never be in charge of your own economy.
Listen with curiosity. Speak with honesty. Act with integrity. The greatest problem with communication is we don’t listen to understand. We listen to reply. When we listen with curiosity, we don’t listen with the intent to reply. We listen for what’s behind the words.
~Roy T. Bennett, The Light in the Heart
Anyone who stops learning is old, whether at twenty or eighty.
Busy hands achieve more than idle tongues.
Discover the fulfilment of intimate relationships with flesh-and-blood neighbours and team-mates in concrete place and time, and we escape the pressure of mainstream media to channel intimacy only as virtual embrace.
~Jose Panate-Aceves and John Hayes
Do your little bit of good where you are; it’s those little bits of good put together that overwhelm the world.
The rain to the wind said,
You push and I’ll pelt.
They so smote the garden bed
That the flowers actually knelt,
And lay lodged–though not dead.
I know how the flowers felt.
Tears shed for another person are not a sign of weakness. They are a sign of a pure heart.
~José N. Harris,
Try not to become a man of success. Rather become a man of value.
Stillness reveals the secrets of eternity.
