Here is today’s quote from the famed author Charlotte Bronte:
I don’t think, sir, you have a right to command me, merely because you are older than I, or because you have seen more of the world than I have; your claim to superiority depends on the use you made of your time and experience.
Yes it’s been a while, apologies to my followers as this was due to personal circumstances that we all have to experience from time to time.
Brains do not make one happy, and happiness is the best thing in the world.
L Frank Baum.
A couple of quotes I came across, would be useful to know:
Tell me and I forget, Teach me and I remember.
Involve me and I learn.
There are three things to aim at in public speaking:
first, to get into your subject, then to get your subject into yourself
and, lastly, to get your subject into the heart of your audience.
I haven’t done this for a while , but here are some quotes:
People grow through experience, if they meet life honestly and courageously. This is how character is built. Do what you can, with what you have, where you are.
It is better to live one day as a lion than a thousand days as a lamb.
Life is a series of comebacks.
‘ When we are no longer able to change a situation,we are challenged to change ourselves’
I like both these quotes, so decided to share these with you today:
‘In between goals is a thing called life, that has to be lived & enjoyed’
‘Remember that happiness is a way of travel, not a destination’
I am getting to the stage, where friends or family of a similar age are discussing:
- Remember about the good old days regards to socializing…and still have change at the end of the evening!
- Complaining about there is no respect any more from younger generation,,,getting attitude,no manners!
- The cost of everything these days from groceries,transportation to house prices’…you could get a beer/pizza for…
- The weather…but this more from a British perspective eg We always had long,hot summers and snow for the holidays
BUT the thing is this seems to be a recurring generational view repeated over and over!
‘Age is an issue of mind over matter.If you don’t mind, it doesn’t matter’
This is another one I like;
‘Life appears to me too short to be spent in nursing animosity or registering wrongs’ by Charlotte Bronte. no less
We all too often in life succumb to petty or personal grievances that sometimes last years…was it worth it other than perhaps pride,stubbornness or the fact you could be in the wrong?
‘ He who smiles rather than rages is always stronger’ Japanese proverb
