just sharing all these thoughts today.....nice to be reflected upon.
We are told that people stay in love because of chemistry or because they remain intrigued with each other, because of many kindnesses, because of luck... But part of it has got to be forgiveness and gratefulness.
American journalist (1941 - )
All the arts we practice are apprenticeship. The big art is our life.
M. C. Richards
Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter.
Martin Luther King Jr. (1929 - 1968)
Accustom yourself continually to make many acts of love, for they enkindle and melt the soul.
Saint Teresa of Avila (1515 - 1582)
If you observe a really happy man, you will find... that he is happy in the course of living life twenty-four crowded hours each day.
W. Beran Wolfe
We allow our ignorance to prevail upon us and make us think we can survive alone, alone in patches, alone in groups, alone in races, even alone in genders.
US author & poet (1928 - )
The really potent part of love is that it allows you to carry around beliefs about yourself that make you feel special, desirable, precious, innately good. Your lover couldn't have seen [these qualities] in you, even temporarily, if they weren't part of your essential being.
Martha Beck, O Magazine, February 2003
When you helped somebody, right away you were responsible for that person. And things always followed for which you were never prepared.
Martha Brooks, True Confessions of a Heartless Girl
Happiness often sneaks in through a door you didn't know you left open.
John Barrymore (1882 - 1942)
Learn the art of patience. Apply discipline to your thoughts when they become anxious over the outcome of a goal. Impatience breeds anxiety, fear, discouragement and failure. Patience creates confidence, decisiveness, and a rational outlook, which eventually leads to success.
