Thought of the Moment

Beauty that Doesn't Fade

People who are comfortable with themselves and who strive to be authentic and kind exude a special kind of beauty, one that doesn't fade with age.

 

Religion

When I do good, I feel good. When I do bad, I feel bad. That's my religion.

- Abraham Lincoln

 

Living with a generous spirit

I care not for a man's religion whose dog and cat are not the better for it.

- Abraham Lincoln

 

Real Togetherness

Perhaps only people who are capable of real togetherness have that look of being alone in the universe. The others have a certain stickiness, they stick to the mass.

- D. H. Lawrence

 

Love and Separation

Ever has it been that love knows not its own depth until the hour of separation.

- Kahlil Gibran

 

Discovering Your Contribution to the World

If you want to know where to find your contribution to the world, look at your wounds. When you learn how to heal them, teach others.

- Emily Maroutian

 

Winning an argument

If you enter into a conversation or argument with someone you love with the intention of "winning," then you are really fighting a battle. You are trying to take your opponent down or put them in their place. The only thing you are going to win is a broken relationship. Winning over your partner means your whole relationship is losing. The only time anyone wins an argument is if both parties leave it feeling heard, respected, and loved.

- Emily Maroutian

 

One Life

If you suddenly realized this entire thing was a dream, and you could suddenly do whatever you wanted (other than hurting someone) what would you do? Whatever answer that you came up with, do that.

- Kyle Cease

 

Our Limitations

People can only be as good as they are, no matter how much they love you.

- Demi Moore

 

Thoughts on Forgiving Those Who Aren't Sorry

Hold others to the same standard that you hold yourself. Unless they're children or mentally disabled, expect other people to behave, or at least try to behave, as ethically as you do, or at least try to. If you forgive them for doing something that you would not forgive yourself for doing, you are claiming that you are their superior. If they do something to you that any reasonable person would know is wrong, but they refuse to apologize to you, they are telling you that they consider themselves your superior, and they don't respect you.
