Joseph Addison Quote

“What sunshine is to flowers, smiles are to humanity. These are but trifles, to be sure; but scattered along life’s pathway, the good they do is inconceivable.”
~ Joseph Addison, Essayist 1672 – 1719

Quick Fiction

Sam was in his glory, as the woman behind the counter, gave him a bag of day old muffins and doughnuts. She also filled his thermos with fresh brewed coffee.

Sam is homeless, and has no job. He forages in the dumpsters for returnable cans and bottles, which keeps him busy.

Now he is thankful for people like the woman that works at the local bakery. Sam sees the best the best in people, and that’s a good thing.


Nothing in the affairs
of humanity is worthy
of great anxiety.



The essence of being human is that
one does not seek perfection.

-George Orwell


We need more light
about each other. Light
creates understanding,
understanding creates
love, love creates
patience, and patience
creates unity.

Malcolm X
