Quote of the Day – Erma Bombeck on Mothers

It’s Mother’s day around here and while I’m lucky to have my mother, I’m keenly aware of those who have lost theirs. So, in that, I wish all mother’s out there, with us and no longer, a happy mother’s day. May your day be filled with love and laughter. When mothers talk about the depression…

Quote of the Day – Happily Ever After

I had a hard time picking today’s quote. I wasn’t feeling inspired, I searched for different words, different authors and deep thinkers and nothing appealed to me. Then I came across this, it seemed to say it just right. 🙂 Feel lucky for what you have when you have it. Isn’t that the point? Happily…

Quote of the Day – Henry David Thoreau on Success

I’ve learned many things in my years on this planet. The few most important? Be dedicated, be purposeful, be yourself. The rest will all fall into place. This quote by Henry David Thoreau really speaks to me. 🙂 I have learned this at least by my experiment: that if one advances confidently in the direction…

Quote of the Day: George Lucas on Hope

As we all know, today is May Fourth, or May the Fourth, or May the Force, etc. So I went in search of something I thought George Lucas once said, instead I found this: The secret is not to give up hope. It’s very hard not to because if you’re really doing something worthwhile I…

Quote of the Day – François Duc de La Rochefoucauld on Experience

Experience is a funny thing. I think we look at experiences differently. We also look at how we are prepared for experiences in different angles. We make things better/worse than they need to be in most experiences. When sometimes, all we need to do is enjoy whatever experience we are having in the moment we’re…

Quote of the Day – Nikos Kazantzakis on Trusting Others

I really enjoy this quote. It screams at me: Nothing can stand in your way, keep reaching higher and further, faster and faster. Nothing can limit you, but you. I choose the ascending path because my heart drives me toward it. “Upward! Upward! Upward!” my heart shouts, and I follow it trustingly. – Nikos Kazantzakis…

Quote of the Day – Thomas Hughes on Earthquakes and Hope

One year ago today, we heard of an event rarely seen in our time, or recorded history. An earthquake shook forth from the floor of the Pacific Ocean and sent forth a massive wall of water than changed the face of Japan. In my Geology Class we’ve been talking about earthquakes and I learned this…

Photo of the Day – Cloud Peeping

Today’s photo spoke to me; it reminded me that even when you’re knee-deep in just about everything that life can throw at you, and there are clouds on the horizon. There’s still blue skies ahead. Even when you’re surrounded by darkness. I hope you see that too.

Quote of the Day – Louis L’Amour on Going Somewhere

I think we’re always going somewhere. I think we’ve always got something on our minds. The hard part is filtering out what you need, what you don’t need, and what should matter. That’s the hard part of life, right? The first goal need not be the final one, for a sailing ship sails first by…
