Some things to ponder

Ever so often, I like to share some of the quotes given me by the Mastery Foundation--for whom I lead "Making a Difference Workshops" for years, and soon again, I hope.

These are what I've chosen for this blog.

Don't just 'read' them.

Ponder them.

Spend some time with them.

Let them move and challenge and shape you.

Happy Pondering!!!

"Freedom is what you do with what's been done to you."--Jean-Paul Sartre

"Something opens our wings. Something makes boredom and hurt disappear. Someone fills the cup in front of us: We taste only sacredness.--Rumi

"If one does not have wild dreams of achievement, there is no spur even to get the dishes washed. One must think like a hero to behave like a merely decent human being.--May Sarton

"The first duty of love is to listen."--Paul Tillich

"Our Druidic ancestors welcomed every child with the words: Here come God again.--Fr. John Cullen

"Imagination is more important that knowledge. For knowledge is limited, whereas imagination embraces the entire world...."--Albert Einstein

"When starting out to build a world, One starts first with oneself."--Langston Hughes

"Somewhere we must come to see that human progress never rolls in on the wheels of inevitability. It comes through the tireless efforts and the persistent work of dedicated individuals who are willing to be co-workers with God."--Martin Luther King, Jr.

"Religion isn't where your mind is. Religion is where your ass is."--Phillip Berrigan, SJ

"Make yourself a light."--Buddha's last words to his followers.

Ponder on....
