The intuitive mind is a sacred gift and the rational mind is a faithful servant. We have created a society that honors the servant and has forgotten the gift.
~ Albert Einstein
“You cannot be afraid to speak up and speak out for what you believe. You have to have courage, raw courage.”
~ John Lewis
It’s coming home to roost over the next 50 years or so. It’s not just climate change; it’s sheer space, places to grow food for this enormous horde. Either we limit our population growth or the natural world will do it for us, and the natural world it for us right now.
~ David Attenborough
“I’m an introvert… I love being by myself, love being outdoors, love taking a long walk with my dogs and looking at the trees, flowers, the sky.”
~ Audrey Hepburn
“Men marry women with the hope they will never change. Women marry men with the hope they will change. Invariably they are both disappointed.”
~ Albert Einstein
“When you do something noble and beautiful and nobody noticed, do not be sad. For the sun every morning is a beautiful spectacle and yet most of the audience still sleeps.”
~ John Lennon
“Difficulties are meant to rouse, not discourage. The human spirit is to grow strong by conflict.”
~ William Ellery Channing
There are two kinds of truths: truth of reasoning and truths of fact. Truths of reasoning are necessary and their opposite is impossible; those of fact are contingent and their opposite is possible.
~ Gottfried Leibniz
Nothing is more fairly distributed than common sense: no one thinks he needs more of it than he already has.
Life is the fire that burns and the sun that gives light. Life is the wind and the rain and the thunder in the sky. Life is matter and is earth, what is and what is not, and what beyond is in Eternty.
~ Lucius Annaeus Seneca
“Look for 3 things in a person. Intelligence, Energy, & Integrity.
If they don’t have the last one, don’t even bother with the first two.”
~ Warren Buffett
People expect Byzantine, Machiavellian logic from politicians. But the truth is simple. Trial lawyers learn a good rule: ‘Don’t decide what you have to decide.’ That’s not evasion, it’s wisdom.
I’m into the law of attraction and quantum physics. Like cosmic ordering. It’s all about thinking lovely things that you would like in life, and feeling good about them before the manifest, so that by the time they do, you don’t want them because you’re on to your next desire.
When I hear somebody sigh, ‘Life is hard,’ I am always tempted to ask, ‘Compared to what?’
Sydney J. Harris
“One of the most tragic things I know about human nature is that all of us tend to put off living. We are all dreaming of some magical rose garden over the horizon instead of enjoying the roses that are blooming outside our windows today.”
~ Dale Carnegie
In a world of lies and liars, an honest work of art is always an act of social responsibility.
Isn’t it funny how day by day nothing changes but when you look back everything is different.
C. S. Lewis
“Practice any art, music, singing, dancing, acting, drawing, painting, sculpting, poetry, fiction, essays, reportage, no matter how well or badly, not to get money and fame, but to experience becoming, to find out what’s inside you, to make your soul grow.”
~ Kurt Vonnegut

The fact that religion plays such a part in how people vote troubles me, troubles me as a minister’s daughter. Because I always felt that the separation of church and state was what our forefathers and foremothers really fought for.
For the first time in history we can track the evolution of a pandemic in real time. Influenza viruses are notorious for their rapid mutation and unpredictable behavior.
Science and fiction both begin with similar questions: What if? Why? How does it all work? But they focus on different areas of life on earth.
What necessity is there to dwell on the Past, when the Present is so much surer-the Future so much brighter?
The secret is the answer to all that has been, all that is, and all that will ever be.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
