“It is not what he has, nor even what he does, which directly expresses the worth of a man, but what he is.”
I am thankful for friends and family.
I am thankful for all the opportunities that appear in my life.
I am thankful that I meet the right people at the right time and in the right place.
I am thankful for you, those who read and follow this blog.
I am thankful that life is forever revealing itself to me in a dew drop, a grain of sand, in the eyes of another, in all the ways that make my life a wonderful and unique esperience.
I am thankful.
“Real joy comes not from ease or riches or from the praise of men, but from doing somethin worthwhile.”
“Only in winter can you tell which trees are truly green. Only when the winds of adversity blow can you tell whether an individual or a country has courage and steadfastness.”
“As flowers carry dewdrops, trembling on the edges of the petals, and ready to fall at the first waft of the wind or brush of a bird, so the heart should carry its beaded words of thanksgiving. At the first breath of heavenly flavor, let down the shower, perfumed with the heart’s gratitude.”
“No man really becomes a fool until he stops asking questions.”
“Conviction is worthless unless it is converted to conduct.”
For life is the mirror of king and slave–
‘Tis just what we are and do;
Then give to the world the best you have,
And the best will come back to you.
