Today’s quote is from the days of the ancient Greeks, who accomplished so much, and who thought so deeply.
“Our happiness depends on wisdom all the way.”
In this day and age where “Wipeout” is one of the top rated TV shows–it’s fun, but not a real mind stimulator– it’s always nice when you can take a few moments in your day to think deeply about the things that really matter to you and about the people who are really important to you. It will bring you closer to real happiness.
Someone once said, and I can’t remember who– that it’s better to aim for the moon and hit the lamp post than to aim for the lamp post and hit the curb. I like that. And this, too:
“We aim above the mark to hit the mark.”
–Ralph Waldo Emerson
You get the idea.
Have a wonderful one!
This one is from a dear friend, Hilton Purvis. I found it on her Facebook page today and it touched me.
“This is my simple religion. There is no need for temples, no need for complicated philosophy.
Our own brain, our own heart is our temple.
The philosophy is kindness.”
If we all just practiced the religion of kindness every day…..what a world!
