Thought of the Moment

Your Heart

Everything you gain in life will rot and fall apart, and all that will be left of you is what was in your heart.

- Jim Carrey

 

Smiling From The Heart

I was glad my father was an eye-smiler. It meant he never gave me a fake smile because it's impossible to make your eyes twinkle if you aren't feeling twinkly yourself. A mouth-smile is different. You can fake a mouth-smile any time you want, simply by moving your lips. I've also learned that a real mouth-smile always has an eye-smile to go with it. So watch out, I say, when someone smiles at you but his eyes stay the same. It's sure to be a phony.

- Roald Dahl

 

How to Heal

Physical rest, emotional rest, love, and laughter - these are conditions that heal.

 

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

 

The Blows of His Chisel

God loves us, so He makes us the gift of suffering.

Through suffering, we release our hold on the toys of this world...

We're like blocks of stone, out of which the sculptor carves the forms of men.

The blows of his chisel, which hurt us so much, are what make us perfect.

The suffering in this world is not the failure of God's love for us; it is that love in action.

 

Hate degrades the hater's soul

I will permit no man to narrow and degrade my soul by making me hate him.

- Booker T. Washington

 

Hate

If you want to forget something or someone, never hate it, or never hate him/her. Everything and everyone that you hate is engraved upon your heart; if you want to let go of something, if you want to forget, you cannot hate.

C. Joybell C.

 

Healing power of being deeply loved.

We may not always heal physically. We may walk through this life with visible scars. But we can always heal within if we feel deeply loved.

 

Less counsel, more love.

You never know what someone has to struggle through to get them to where they are going.

- Glenn Sprague

 

Central to the art of loving

Knowing how to be solitary is central to the art of loving. When we can be alone, we can be with others without using them as a means of escape.
