Happy Thanksgiving!

“For each new morning with its light,
For rest and shelter of the night,
For health and food, for love and friends,
For everything Thy goodness sends.”
**Ralph Waldo Emerson

Talk About Ironic

“It is the privilege of the gods to want nothing, and the virtue of godlike men to want little”

**Diogenes

The Wonderous Human

“Men go abroad to wonder at the heights of mountains, at the

huge waves of the sea, at the long courses of the rivers, at the

vast compass of the ocean, at the circular motions of the stars,

yet they pass by themselves without wondering.”

–Saint Augustine

 

The Good at Heart

“It’s really a wonder that I haven’t dropped all my ideals,

because they seem so absurd and impossible to carry out. Yet I

keep them, because in spite of everything, I still believe that

people are really good at heart.”

-Anne Frank

This means to much more when you understand that Miss Frank wrote this in her diary as a young Jewish girl hiding from the Nazis with her family in WWII.  She did not survive the camps, but up to the last entry she maintained her faith in the world. If she can believe in humanity, who can then do otherwise?

Arise

“Our greatest glory is not in never falling, but in rising every

time we fall.”

–Confucius

Dreaming by Day

“All men dream, but not equally. Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds, wake in the day to find that it was vanity; but the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act on their dreams with open eyes, to make them possible.”

–T. E. Lawrence

Pink, Joy, and Living

“I believe in pink. I believe that laughing is the best calorie burner.  I believe in kissing, kissing a lot.  I believe in being strong when everything seems to be going wrong. I believe that happy girls are the prettiest girls.  I believe that tomorrow is another day and I believe in miracles.”
 
–Audrey Hepburn
