Quote of the Day – Mary Travers On Civil Rights

On this day in 1964 President Lyndon B. Johnson signed the Civil Rights Act into law. Things didn’t change overnight, some would say that ideas and ideals are still changing. Today’s quote reflects that. We’ve learned that it will take more than one generation to bring about change. The fight for civil rights has developed…

Quote of the Day – Will Rogers on Aging

Interesting enough, On this day in history, Dwight D. Eisenhower signed the law appropriating 33.5 billion (in those days) for highway construction. The modern highway system was born. I went searching for “road” quotes and instead found this one. Much better than: “I can’t drive 55!” right? Some people try to turn back their odometers….

Photo of the Day – Making Your Own Fortune

Or conversely, seeing what’s inside your cookie. LOL — This photo came from a coffee shop I was at recently. I was talking with some friends and I noticed these poor cookies, unopened, with no one around. I guess they didn’t want to know their fortune, they just wanted to imagine what’s inside.

Quote of the Day – Samuel Johnson on Anticipation

This quote reminded me that there’s always something coming or going. Just depends on which end you’re looking at. I’m a very anticipatory person, I constantly over-engineer/over-process things.

At any rate, today’s her birthday. I believe that everything happens for a reason. People change so that you can learn to let go, things go…

Quote of the Day – Thornton Wilder on Soldiers

In the United States, today we observe Memorial Day. A day, where we thank those who have served our country for their sacrifices, sometimes even the ultimate sacrifice. Many soldiers I’ve met are dedicated and patriotic and I’m grateful for their service, for their protection of my rights and grateful for those who came home….

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 – 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…
