Henry David Thoreau quote..” Most men lead lives of quiet desperation, and go to the grave with the song still in them.” I so much prefer Walt Whitman..”The sweetest songs yet remain to be sung.” I have to keep fueling the fantasy with positive energy, creating realistic dreams. Having twitter followers has been a wonderful “fueling” experience.
This is one, on a personal level, that has always touched my life. “Of all the things which wisdom provides to make us entirely happy, much the greatest is the possession of friendship.”
was an ancient Greek philosopher. His words timeless. “You don’t develop courage by being happy in your relationships everyday. You develop it by surviving difficult times and challenging adversity.”
“It is not so much our friends’ help that helps us, as the confidence of their help.”
“Not what we have But what we enjoy, constitutes our abundance.”
“I have never wished to cater to the crowd; for what I know they do not approve, and what approve I do not know.”
……..and a favorite , but not sure which of the Greek philosophers to credit. “Happiness==friends, free thought, and knowing yourself.”
Words of wisdom to enjoy and perhaps live by.
“There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle, and the other is as though everything is a miracle.”
