Never To Grow Old

It might be a nice idea to head outside this afternoon, just to watch the birds chattering away. This morning, I saw a Cardinal sitting on the fence... as if he didn't have a care in the world!!

Anyone who keeps the ability to see beauty never grows old.
Franz Kafka

A Quote About How To Change the World

The most powerful thing you can do to change the world, is to change your own beliefs about the nature of life, people, reality, to something more positive.
Shakti Gawain

Action is the antidote to despair
Joan Baez

No matter what people tell you, words and ideas can change the world.
Robin Williams

As a rock star, I have two instincts, I want to have fun, and I want to change the world. I have a chance to do both.

What Kids Think of Us!

Children have a remarkable talent for not taking the adult world with the kind of respect we are so confident it ought to be given. To the irritation of authority figures of all sorts, children expend considerable energy in "clowning around." They refuse to appreciate the gravity of our monumental concerns, while we forget that if we were to become more like children our concerns might not be so monumental.
Conrad Hyers

A Kind Word

 We are generally so busy with our own lives that we have little time to say a kind word to someone else. Today, I'm going to say something nice to anyone who enters my life this afternoon.


He who praises another enriches himself far more than he does the one praised. To praise is an investment in happiness. The poorest human being has something to give that the richest could not buy.

George Mathew Adams

Always tell the truth, use kind words, keep your promises, giggle and laugh, be positive, love one another, always be grateful, forgiveness is mandatory, try new things, say please and thank you, say your prayers, and smile.

Wise words from Charlotte

I try to avoid looking forward or backward, and try to keep looking upward.
Charlotte Bronte

Cheerfulness, it would appear, is a matter which depends fully as much on the state of things within, as on the state of things without and around us.
Charlotte Bronte

You had no right to be born; for you make no use of life. Instead of living for, in, and with yourself, as a reasonable being ought, you seek only to fasten your feebleness on some other person's strength.
Charlotte Bronte
Memory in youth is active and easily impressible;
in old age it is comparatively callous to new impressions,
but still retains vividly those of earlier years.
Charlotte Bronte

I hope that I have given you something to think about today! Thanks so much for stopping by :)
