Suggestions for Reading Daily Inspiration - Daily Quote

There will be days when you say, "That's obvious, everybody knows that." Let those days be a gentle reminder.

There will be days when the picture and the quote make you feel good, and you say, "Ah." Let those days be tranquil and comforting.

There will be days when you say, "Huh, what does that quote mean?" Let those be days of inquiry and questioning.

There will be days when you say, "NO WAY! That doesn't agree with my view of how things should be." Let those be days for accepting diversity. Ask, question, then listen to your own heart and mind. Only you can choose your beliefs.

Believe nothing, no matter where you read it, or who said it, no matter if I have said it, unless it agrees with your own reason and your own common sense.
– The Buddha

Siddhattha Gotama, known as the Buddha, lived in India about 500 BC - at the time the second temple was being constructed in Jerusalem. He was a wise teacher, and is revered, but never worshiped, by those of the Buddhist philosophy.

  1. Jonathan, thank you for your humble thoughts concerning how your original and passed-on quotes and teachings are received. I would like to add that there are days when I am absolutely "blown away" by how relevant, how insightful, and how timely they are. Often my jaw literally drops and I can't wait to share it with others I care about. Sometimes it's the reader comments that blow me away as well as the compassionate responses from other readers. I love starting my day by looking for your email each morning, and following up with the "Further reading" section.

    By the way, I just received an email from Amazon saying your book will arrive early and I was very pleased.

    -Glenn
