Time for some quotes

(The Mastery Foundation--for which I lead Making A Difference workshops--several years ago gave me a box of quotes on cards. Every once in a while, I like to share some.What I do a lot in life and on this blog is 'ponder' things. These are well worth 'pondering'.)

"The world is so full of a number of things, I'm sure we all should be happy as kings."--Robert Lewis Stevenson

"A person who has good thoughts cannot ever be ugly. You can have a wonky nose and a crooked mouth and a double chin and stick-out teeth, but if you have good thoughts they will shine out of your face like sunbeams and you will always look lovely."--Roald Dahl

"In times like these men should utter nothing for which they would not be willingly responsible through time and in eternity."--Abraham Lincoln 

"We have it in our power to begin the world over again."--Thomas Paine

"We live by each other and for each other. Alone we can do so little. Together we can do so much."--Helen Keller

"It is not the strongest of the species that survives, nor the most intelligent, but the one most responsive to change."--Charles Darwin

"All sunshine makes the desert."--Arab proverb

"i thank You God for this amazing/day: for the leaping greenly spirits of trees/and a blue true dream of sky; and for everything/which is natural which is infinite which is yes'==e.e.cummings

"We could feel the peace and power of the Great Mystery in the soft grass under our feet and in the blue sky above us. All this made deep feeling within us, and this is how we got our religion."--Luther Standing Bear

"Do all the good you can,/By all the means you can,/In all the ways you can,/In all the places you can,/All the times you can,/To all the people you can,/As long as you ever can."--John Wesley

"Language shapes the way we think, and determines what we can think about."--Benjamin Lee Whorf

Ponder all that at your leisure....Shalom
