Memorial Day 2019


No person was ever honored for what he received.
Honor has been the reward for what he gave.
- Calvin Coolidge

Those we love don't go away,
They walk beside us every day,
Unseen, unheard, but always near,
Still loved, still missed and very dear.
- Anonymous

What you leave behind is not what is engraved in stone monuments,
but what is woven into the lives of others.
- Pericles

A hero is someone who has given his life
to something bigger than himself
or something other than himself.

it is only putting out
the lamp because the dawn has come.
- Rabindranath Tagore

Farewell My Friend
It was beautiful as long as it lasted
The journey of my life.
I have no regrets whatsoever
save the pain I'll leave behind.
Those dear hearts who love and care...
And the strings pulling at the heart and soul...
The strong arms that held me up
When my own strength let me down.
At every turning of my life I came across good friends,
Friends who stood by me,
Even when the time raced me by.
Farewell, farewell my friends
I smile and bid you goodbye.
No, shed no tears for I need them not
All I need is your smile.
If you feel sad do think of me
for that's what I'll like when you live in the hearts
of those you love, remember then
you never die.
- Gitanjali Ghei

Find God In Silence


We need to find God, and he cannot
be found in noise and restlessness.
God is the friend of silence.
See how nature - trees, flowers, grass -
grows in silence; see the stars,
the moon and the sun, how they move in silence...
We need silence to be able to touch souls.
- Mother Teresa

True silence is the rest of the mind,
and is to the spirit what sleep is to the body,
nourishment and refreshment.
- William Penn

Silence is a source of great strength.
- Lao Tzu

In silence you hear who you are becoming.
You create yourself.

Break The Spell Of Your Frustrations


Consult not your fears but your hopes and your dreams.
Think not about your frustrations,
but about your unfulfilled potential.
Concern yourself not with what you tried and failed in,
but with what it is still possible for you to do.
- Pope John XXIII

When you are angry or frustrated, what comes out?
Whatever it is, it's a good indication of what you're made of.
- H. Jackson Brown, Jr.

Our frustration is greater when we have much and want more
than when we have nothing and want some.
We are less dissatisfied when we lack many things than
when we seem to lack but one thing.
- Eric Hoffer

All that is necessary to break the spell of inertia and frustration is this:
Act as if it were impossible to fail.
That is the talisman, the formula, the command of right
about face which turns us from failure to success.
- Dorthea Brande

My recipe for dealing with anger and frustration:
set the kitchen timer for twenty minutes,
cry, rant, and rave, and at the sound of the bell,
simmer down and go about business as usual.
- Phyllis Diller

If you get frustrated by some of your family,
focus on the good aspects of your relationship
and attempt to overlook the irritations.
Then give thanks for everyone who plays a part in your life.

Redirect the substantial energy of your frustration
and turn it into positive,
effective, unstoppable determination.

Trust Your Own Inner Eye


Though we travel the world over to find the beautiful,
we must carry it with us or we find it not.
- Ralph Waldo Emerson

The sculptor produces the beautiful statue
by chipping away such parts of the marble block as are not needed -
it is a process of elimination.
- Elbert Hubbard

Outer show is a poor substitute for inner worth.
- Aesop

Perspective. Point-of-view. Is something ugly, or beautiful?
Noble or insensitive? There are six billion ways of seeing life.
Trust your own inner eye for beauty.

The beauty does not live out there; the beauty's in my eyes.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie
