Mark Twain is cool!

Just wanted to share a quote I read this morning from Mark Twain.

Which I totally agree with.

 

Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness, and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts. Broad, wholesome, charitable views of men and things cannot be acquired by vegetating in one little corner of the earth all one’s lifetime. – Mark Twain

Quick Quotes

“It’s never too late. There are a million things you can do, are doing, right now, to improve the world. The products you buy, the foods you eat, the stores you patronize, the news sources you value, the politicos you vote for, the love you make, the information you choose to share, the stories you believe in — every single choice, from coffee cup to charity donation, joke retold to tender human touch — these are what make all the difference.” -Mark Morford

‎”We have to fight them daily, like fleas, those many small worries about the morrow, for they sap our energies.”
– Etty Hillesum
Etty Hillesum, less famous than her contemporary, Anne Frank, lived a short life of great courage. She went voluntarily to the Westerbork camp to help fellow Jews interned by the Nazis. Her letters detail her experiences. She died at Auschwitz in 1943.

‎”It never amazes me that people will follow an illogical assumption and carry it out in a logical fashion”

Nurture your mind with great thoughts, for you will never go any higher than what you think. ~ Benjamin Disraeli

The real trick to life is not to be in the know, but to be in the mystery. -Fred Alan Wolf

That’s probably enough for now.

Words to Live By…

Here is a quote from Elizabeth Gilbert in O magazine this month:

“Can we draft a resolution

to drop the crazy-making

expectation that we must

all be perfect friends

and perfect workers

and perfect lovers with

perfect bodies?”

 

Oh, thank goodness. Can we say that aloud a few more times?

Ok, good.

Now all we have to do is follow through with it. And endeavor to support one another in our daily lives instead of comparing ourselves to each other.
