After The Storm The Heavens Share a Smile…

Quotes and Notes #213, June 11

“After every storm there is a rainbow. If you have eyes, you will find it. If you have wisdom, you will create it. If you have love for yourself and others, you won’t need it.”—Shannon L. Alder—

The hard times come and go but their passing is accelerated by the support and caring that we receive from our friends, families, and loved ones. We must always be there to return the favor.

The rainbow heralds the coming of a brighter day. It is the heaven’s way of sharing a smile

Everything is going to be all right.

There’s no Rush…

Quotes and Notes #209, June 7

“Patience and wisdom walk hand in hand, like two one-armed lovers.”—Jarod Kintz—

Intelligence, looking for a concept, asks, “I wonder what would happen if…” Wisdom guides patience down the road to finding out, slowly. If we are impatient in finding the answer, bad things may happen.

One of my favorite rules to live by is, “If you get in a hurry, you will mess up.” I’ve found, over and over in my life that if I take my time in pursuing any endeavor, large or small, the results will be much more pleasing.

Fears and wisdom

Quotes and Notes, #93 February 2

“To conquer fear is the beginning of wisdom.”–Bertrand Russell

First we must get to know our fears, isolate them, study them, and perhaps name them Jim or Roger or something like that. After that we can accept them, defeat them, learn to live with them, give them up as silly, laugh at them, or, as my brother Tom says, “pack them in the back of your mind and pretend they don’t exist.” Help someone else to conquer their fears today by giving them a free nod and a smile to use as a weapon.

Everything is going to be all right.

Discover Wisdom

Quotes and Notes #90, January 30

“We don’t receive wisdom; we must discover it for ourselves after a journey that no one can take for us or spare us.”–Marcel Proust

Whatever happens each day, good, bad, or mediocre, may be looked at and remembered as valuable lessons of things to be repeated—or not. My mother tells of her father, a salesman, who came home after an unsuccessful work day.

“How was your day, Daddy,” she asked. He replied,”I had a wonderful day, I didn’t sell a thing.” When his daughter asked how that made a good day he answered, “I found a number of places I don’t have to go back to.” We choose our own attitude. Today, help an old lady across the street—physically or figuratively.
