Words to live by


A few of my faves……

What is life? It is the flash of a firefly in the night. It is the breath of a buffalo in wintertime. It is the little shadow which runs across the grass and loses itself in the sunset. – Crowfoot, Blackfoot warrior and orator

Become the change you seek in the world. – Ghandi

Forget not that the earth delights to feel your bare feet and the winds long to play with your hair. – Khalil Gibran

Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover. – Mark Twain

Om Mani Padme Hum – Sanskrit mantra

To laugh often and love much; to win the respect of intelligent persons and the affection of children;

To earn the approbation of honest citizens and endure the betrayal of false friends; to appreciate beauty; to find the best in others;

To give of one’s self; to leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch or a redeemed social condition; to have played and laughed with enthusiasm and sung with exultation; to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived…….
This is to have succeeded. – Ralph Waldo Emerson
