My son said this last night:

"Inspirational becomes boring if all you hear is inspiration."

We were actually watching American Idol, and he said it about the song choices that the contestants made. All the songs were about hope and dreams.

But I think he has a point. You have to talk about the lows in order for the highs to make sense.
It’s not about what happens.
It’s about perspective.
I may not be able to change what takes place, but I can always choose to change my thinking.
-- Michelle Sedas --
Who said that?

You must be the change you wish to see in the world.

In those days spirits were brave, the stakes were high, men were real men, women were real women and small furry creatures from Alpha Centauri were real small furry creatures from Alpha Centauri.
Douglas Adams

"The trouble with the world is not that people know too little, but
that they know so many things that ain’t so."
-Mark Twain

"Sacred cows make the tastiest hamburger."

Everything is realative to something else.
70 degrees is warm in the winter and cool in the summer.
Weighing 200 pounds is bad if you weighed 150 last year, good if you weighed 250 last year.
Lending someone a coat is good, but much more so in a Minneapolis winter than a Miami summer.

When we continue to strive to be good, we become closer to God.
Because when all of the relativity of good is removed, then you have the definition of God.

Today's Thought:
"Anyone taken as an individual is tolerably sensible and reasonable. As
a member of a crowd, he at once becomes a blockhead."
"The fundamental difference between the liberal and the illiberal outlook is that the former regards all questions as open to discussion and all opinions as open to a greater or lesser measure of doubt, while the latter holds in advance that certain opinions are absolutely unquestionable, and that no argument against them must be allowed be heard.

What is curious about this position is the belief that if impartial investigation were permitted it would lead men to the wrong conclusion, and that ignorance is, therefore, the only safeguard against terror.

This point of view cannot be accepted by any man who wishes reason rather than prejudice to govern human action."
-- Bertrand Russell
"You can accomplish anything as long as you don't care who gets the

"But the fact that some geniuses were laughed at does not imply that all who are laughed at are geniuses. They laughed at Columbus, they laughed at Fulton, and they laughed at the Wright brothers. But they also laughed at Bozo the Clown."
Carl Sagan

Once there lived a village of creatures along the bottom of a great crystal river. Each creature in its own manner clung tightly to the twigs and rocks of the river bottom, for clinging was their way of life, and resisting the current what each had learned from birth. But one creature said at last, "I trust that the current knows where it is going. I shall let go, and let it take me where it will. Clinging, I shall die of boredom."
The other creatures laughed and said, "Fool! Let go, and that current you worship will throw you tumbled and smashed across the rocks, and you will die quicker than boredom!"
But the one heeded them not, and taking a breath did let go, and at once was tumbled and smashed by the current across the rocks. Yet, in time, as the creature refused to cling again, the current lifted him free from the bottom, and he was bruised and hurt no more.
And the creatures downstream, to which he was a stranger, cried, "See a miracle! A creature like ourselves, yet he flies! See the Messiah, come to save us all!" And the one carried in the current said, "I am no more Messiah than you. The river delights to lift us free, if only we dare let go. Our true work is this voyage, this adventure."
But they cried the more, "Savior!" all the while clinging to the rocks, making legends of a Savior.
-- Richard Bach Illusions
Things my parents used to say...

My mum (who I sadly lost just before Xmas) used to say of no one in particular just if someone died that she didn't like...!

"He'll be going down not up, and he won't notice the heat for shaking hands!"

My grandmother, a rather spunky woman, never accepted 2nd place to anything.
She skipped several grades and excelled in math.

Her philosophy: 'If you want to know something, don't be afraid to ask'.

That concept broke me out of my shyness. And, it improved listening skills.
I wanted to add this Poem! I hope you all like it. ;)

We may not always realise
that everything we do,
Affects not only our lives
but it touches others too.
As alittle bit of thoughtfulness
to show someone we care,
Brings along some sunshine
for all of us to share.
So everytime we offer
someone a helping hand,
Everytime we show a Friend
we care and understand.
Everytime that we have
kind thoughtful words to give,
We help someone find happiness
in this precious life we live.
For happiness brings happiness
and loving ways bring love.
And giving freely is the gift
that contentment is made of!
