Life is About Enjoying What We Have


Life is not about perfection -
or a quest for perfection.
Life is about enjoying what we have -
for as long as we have it.

Life must not be about regretting what we do not have.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

Even a happy life cannot be without a measure of darkness,
and the word happy would lose its meaning
if it were not balanced by sadness.
It is far better take things as they come along
with patience and equanimity.
- Carl Jung

Life is a song - sing it.
Life is a game - play it.
Life is a challenge - meet it.
Life is a dream - realize it.
Life is a sacrifice - offer it.
Life is love - enjoy it.
- Sai Baba

Arguments Accomplish Nothing


Arguments only confirm people in their own opinions.
- Booth Tarkington

We may have our private opinions
but why should they be a bar to the meeting of hearts?
- Mohandas (Mahatma) Gandhi

The only way to get the best of an argument is to avoid it.
- Dale Carnegie

We cling to our own point of view,
as though everything depended on it.
Yet our opinions have no permanence;
like autumn and winter, they gradually pass away.
- Zhuangzi

The moment we want to believe something,
we suddenly see all the arguments for it,

Kindness to ALL


It's the little things you do
that can make a big difference.
- Bob Proctor

Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.
- Jesus (Matthew 25:40)

I expect to pass through this world but once.
Any good therefore that I can do,
or any kindness that I can show to my fellow-creature,
let me do it now.
Let me not defer or neglect it,
for I shall not pass this way again.
- William Penn

If you treat others kindly, a few will respond with unkindness,
or even take advantage of your kindness,
but most will respond with kindness and friendliness.
However, if you treat others unkindly, you can be quite certain
that they will respond with harsh thoughts and actions.
...
Whatever you do, do with kindness.
Whatever you say, say with kindness.
Wherever you go, radiate kindness.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie
