Love imposes no demands.
Attachment expresses an overwhelming demand - "Make me feel whole."
Love expands beyond the limits of two people.
Attachment tries to exclude everything but two people.
- Deepak Chopra in The Path to Love

If you love something, set it free;
if it comes backs it's yours,
if it doesn't, it never was.
- Richard Bach

The greatest gift that you can give to others is the

Redeemed by Cooperation


Your mother really did know the secret to a better world:
"Play nicely together. Don't fight."

The only thing that will redeem mankind is cooperation.
- Bertrand Russell

When we seek to discover the best in others,
we somehow bring out the best in ourselves.
- William Arthur Ward

Most of us think about succeeding in terms of someone else failing --
that is, if I win, you lose; or if you win, I lose.
Life becomes a zero-sum game.
... [In contrast,] Win-win sees life as a cooperative arena, not a competitive one.
Win-win is a frame of mind and heart that constantly seeks
mutual benefit in all human interactions.
Win-win means agreements or solutions are mutually beneficial and satisfying.
- Stephen R. Covey


Today's affirmation:
I feel unity with Spirit and with all that is.
My life is richer for sharing my being with all those I meet.
Each experience, however it appears at the time,
highlights and strengthens the fabric of my life.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

Happiness is not the absence of problems,
but the willingness to deal with them joyfully.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

A cloudy day is no match for a sunny disposition.
- William Arthur Ward

Count your blessings - not your troubles.
- Dale Carnegie

If I feel depressed I will sing.
If I feel sad I will laugh.
If I feel ill I will double my labor.
If I feel fear I will plunge ahead.
If I feel inferior I will wear new garments.
If I feel uncertain I will raise my voice.
If I feel poverty I will think of wealth to come.
If I feel incompetent I will think of past success.
If I feel insignificant I will remember my goals.
Today I will be the master of my emotions.
- Og Mandino

To Do That Which Will Endure


The three controlling desires of every normal man seem to be:
First, to live. Not merely to exist.
Second, to be a man among men.
Third, to do that which will endure.
- James Hulme Canfield

Death comes to all,

which shall endure until the sun grows cold.

and, departing, leave behind us, footprints on the sands of time.

Why Quotations


Quotations help us remember the simple yet profound truths
that give life perspective and meaning.
- Criswell Freeman

It ain't what you don't know that gets you into trouble.
It's what you know for sure that just ain't so.
- Mark Twain (attributed)

Examine, inquire.
Look into the nature of things.
Search out the grounds of your opinions,
the for and against.
Know why you believe, understand what you believe,
and possess a reason for the faith that is in you.
- Frances Wright

If you would be a real seeker after truth,
it is necessary that at least once in your life you doubt,
as far as possible, all things.
- Rene Descartes

Everything is not as it appears to be.
- Proverb

Quotations are dead unless a spur for inquiry.
The greatest value of quotations is as a source of questions -
to get us thinking about new ideas.
Open minds - open hearts.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie
