Motivational thoughts-What you see

Let this season of joy truly be a season of joy. It is far too easy to get caught up in the Doing, and forget to relax, to love, and to enjoy. Stop, look around, breathe, be grateful for everything. The question is not what you look at, but what you see.
- Henry David Thoreau

I can forgive, but I cannot forget, is only another way of saying, I will not forgive. Forgiveness ought to be like a canceled note - torn in two, and burned up, so that it never can be shown against one.
- Henry Ward Beecher, 19th century Congregationalist clergyman and social reformer

Thoughts on life-Not a race

Life is a journey. It is not a race to test who can finish first or who can end up with the most loot. Rather, life is best enjoyed as a meander - watching the view to left and right - above and below - as  the days slowly move past in dress review.

An Inspired life

Living an inspired life comes from the living of it - the taking action - and not from the wanting, or the hoping, or even from the dreaming and the planing, unless the dreams and plans are followed by bold action. Honor, Forgiveness, Gratitude, Choice,
Vision, Action, Celebration, Unity -
The Values of an Inspired Life.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

Independence day quotes-Patriotism

You have to love a nation that celebrates its independence every July 4, not with a parade of guns, tanks, and soldiers who file by the White House in a show of strength and muscle, but with family picnics where kids throw Frisbees, the potato salad gets iffy, and the flies die from happiness.  You may think you have overeaten, but it is patriotism.
