Thought of the Moment

Whole and Real

Growing children have better access to being whole and real than we do. May we embrace them for who they are and recognize them as our greatest spiritual teachers.

 

The best opportunities are earned through steady effort

Can you sense when people are networking with you only because they think you can help them? Others can, too. Rather than spend energy networking, we are better off putting our efforts into improving. The best opportunities are earned through steady effort.

 

Grief and Happiness

There is neither happiness nor misery in the world; there is only the comparison of one state with another, nothing more. He who has felt the deepest grief is best able to experience supreme happiness.

- Alexandre Dumas

 

Try Doing Something Good

You can spend all day undermining other people, and even if you're right, who cares? Anybody can talk about why something is bad. Try doing something good.

- Joseph Gordon-Levitt

 

Beauty

That which is striking and beautiful is not always good, but that which is good is always beautiful.

- Ninon de L'Enclos

 

Friendship

I would rather walk with a friend in the dark, than alone in the light.

- Helen Keller

 

On Having Integrity

You can tell more about a person by what he says about others than you can by what others say about him.

- Leo Aikman

 

Courage

You can change or stay the same, there are no rules to this thing. We can make the best or the worst of it. I hope you make the best of it. And I hope you see things that startle you. I hope you feel things you never felt before. I hope you meet people with a different point of view. I hope you live a life you're proud of. If you find that you're not, I hope you have the courage to start all over again.

- Eric Roth

 

Love

If you send out goodness from yourself, or if you share that which is happy or good within you, it will all come back to you multiplied ten thousand times. In the kingdom of love there is no competition; there is no possessiveness or control. The more love you give away, the more love you will have.

- John O'Donahue

 

On A Good Path

Those who are on a good path don't feel the need to put others down.

Where there is peace and kindness, there is no desire to compare or condemn.
