Quote Tuesday

Many people will walk in and out of your life, but only true friends will leave footprints on your heart.  To handle yourself, use your head; to handle others, use your heart.  Anger is only one letter short of danger.  If someone betrays you once, it is his fault; if he betrays you twice; it is your fault.  Great minds discuss ideas; average minds discuss events; small minds discuss people.  He who loses money, loses much; he who loses a friend, loses much more; he who loses faith loses all.  Beautiful young people are accidents of nature, but beautiful old people are works of art.  Learn from the  mistakes of others.  You can’t live long enough to make them all yourself….  There is no beginning or end.  Yesterday is history.  Tomorrow is mystery.  Today is a gift, that’s why they call it the present.

Ten Books That I am Currently Reading

I love books and like that old Lay’s potato chip advertisement, “I can’t read just one!”  If truth be told, I can’t stop at two or three, for that matter.” Currently, I am reading 8 books.  They are:

1.      As A Man Thinketh, James Allen

2.      Anatomy of Movement, Blandine Calais-Germain

3.      Fierce Medicine,  Ana T. Forrest

4.      The Happiness Project, Gretchin Rubin

5.      The Zen Path Through Depression, Philip Martin

6.      How To Be Sick, Toni Bernhard

7.     Black in Latin America, Henry Louis Gates

8.     Transitions: Making Sense of Life’s Changes (Revised 25th Anniv.) James Bridges

Sometimes I laughingly think that I have an undiagnosed attention deficit disorder. ☻♥☻

There is something beautiful about all scars of whatever nature.  A scar means the hurt is over, the wound is closed and healed, done with. ~ Harry Crews

Quote Tuesday

When you abandon every desire that rises up within you,

and when you become content with things as they are, then you experience inner peace.
When your mind is untroubled by misfortune, when you desire no pleasures,
when your emotions are tranquil, and when you are free from fear and anger,
then you experience inner calm.  When you are free from all attachments,
when you are indifferent to success and failure,
then you experience inner serenity.
When you can withdraw your senses from pleasures of the senses,
just as a tortoise withdraws its limbs,
then you experience inner wisdom.

~The Bhagavad Gita
