Thought of the Moment

Miserable and Happy People

Generally speaking, the most miserable people I know are those who are obsessed with themselves; the happiest people I know are those who lose themselves in the service of others...By and large, I have come to see that if we complain about life, it is because we are thinking only of ourselves.

- Gordon B. Hinckley

 

The willingness to forgive

The willingness to forgive is a sign of spiritual and emotional maturity. It is one of the great virtues to which we all should aspire. Imagine a world filled with individuals willing both to apologize and to accept an apology. Is there any problem that could not be solved among people who possessed the humility and largeness of spirit and soul to do either - or both - when needed?

- Gordon B. Hinckley

 

What is wisdom?

What is wisdom? Is it not insight gained through experience? While gaining authentic wisdom, doesn't one also develop some humility and compassion for every person's journey, regardless of differences in life values? Those who exude what feels like authentic wisdom don't seem to have a need for their contentions to be heard - rather, they are blissfully occupied with learning and giving.

 

What makes a good friend?

A good friend doesn't look to take advantage of you. A good friend isn't in your life because your friendship is a win-win. A good friend chooses to be in your life because she roots for you and genuinely enjoys who you are.

 

What you react to in others, you strengthen in yourself.

What you react to in others, you strengthen in yourself.

- Eckhart Tolle

 

When we focus on ourselves, when we focus on others

Self-absorption in all its forms kills empathy, let alone compassion. When we focus on ourselves, our world contracts as our problems and preoccupations loom large. But when we focus on others, our world expands. Our own problems drift to the periphery of the mind and so seem smaller, and we increase our capacity for connection - or compassionate action.

- Daniel Goleman

 

Being Kind Today

You cannot do a kindness too soon for you never know how soon it will be too late.

- Ralph Waldo Emerson

 

Be Tender, Compassionate, and Tolerant

Be tender with the young, compassionate with the aged, and tolerant of the weak, because someday in your life you will be all of these.

- George Washington Carver

 

Humility and Gratitude

Where authentic humility and a spirit of gratitude are not present, it is near impossible to be genuinely liked and respected.

 

To be kind trumps all

When I was young, I admired clever people.

Now that I am old, I admire kind people.

- Abraham Heschel
