Thoughts for the Day

"Deciding to kill blue whales because you need the soap is like deciding to unravel the Bayeux Tapestry because you need the wool." - Ben Elton, on why the environment is about the heart as well as the head

"The sea rises, the light falls, lovers cling to each other, and children cling to us. The moment we cease to hold each other, the moment we break faith with one another, the sea engulfs us and the light goes out." - James Baldwin

Change: “Little men with little minds and little imagination jog through life in little ruts, smugly resisting all changes which would jar their little worlds.” Marie Fraser

“It might be just as offensive to be around a man who never changed his mind as one who never changed his clothes.” country parson

“Welcome change as a friend; try to visualize new possibilities and the blessings it is bound to bring you. If you stay interested in everything around you—in new ways of life, new people, new places, and ideas— you’ll stay young, no matter what your age. Never stop learning and never stop growing; that is the key to a rich and fascinating life.” Alexander de Seversky

“When you’re through changing, you’re through”. Bruce Barton

“We can benefit from change. Anyone who has ever really lived knows that there is no life without growth. When we stop growing, we stop living and start existing. But there is no growth without challenge, and there is no challenge without change. Life is a series of changes that create challenges, and if we arc going to make it, we have to grow.” Warren Wiersbe

“Approach the common people with dignity and they will respect you. Show piety (respect) towards your parents and kindness to your children and they will be loyal to you. Promote those who are worthy, train those who are incompetent.” K’ung Fu Tzu (Confucious)

“Do not push a wagon up the hill. You will only raise the dust about yourself. Don’t think about all your anxieties. You will only make yourself ill.” K’ung Fu Tzu (Confucious)

“Do not try to cultivate fields too large. The weeds will only grow luxuriantly.” K’ung Fu Tzu (Confucious)
“The superior man acts before he speaks and, afterwards, speaks according to his actions. The superior man is universally minded and is no partisan. The inferior man is a partisan and not universal”. K’ung Fu Tzu (Confucious)

“When a command is wrong, a son should resist his father and a servant should resist his master.” K’ung Fu Tzu (Confucious)

“Don’t do to others what you would not like them to do to you.” K’ung Fu Tzu (Confucious)

“Now chess playing is but a small art but, without his whole mind being given, all his will bent to it, a man cannot succeed at it. Chess Ts’ew is the best chess-player in all the kingdom. Suppose he is teaching two men to play – the one gives to the subject his whole mind and bends it to his will, doing nothing but listening to Chess Ts’ew. The other, although he seems to be listening to him, has his whole mind running on a swan which he thinks is approaching, and wishes to bend his bow, adjust the string to the arrow and shoot it. Although he is learning along with the other, he does not come up to him. Why? Because his intelligence is not equal? Not so.” K’ung Fu Tzu (Confucious)

“All are equally men, but some are great men and some are little men. How is this? Those who follow that part of themselves which is great become great men. Those that follow the part that is little become little men. To the mind belongs the task of thinking. By thinking it gets the right view of things; by neglecting to think, it fails to do this.” K’ung Fu Tzu (Confucious)

“Give every man the benefit of the doubt.” The Talmud

“One good deed invariably leads to another; an evil deed always brings another in its wake.” The Talmud
“Do not threaten a child; either punish him or forgive him.” The Talmud

“A classroom should never have more than 25 pupils.” The Talmud

“When you encounter a child whose head is as solid as iron, you may be sure that his teacher did not have a pleasant way of explaining things.” The Talmud

“Always begin the lesson with a humorous illustration.” The Talmud

“There are four categories of pupil: the sponge—he absorbs and retains everything; the funnel— everything that goes in comes out; the sifter— he remembers the trivial and forgets the significant; the sieve — he retains the important and sifts out the incidental.” The Talmud

“Judge a man not according to the words of his mother, but according to the comments of his neighbours.” The Talmud

"Love is life. And if you miss love, you miss life." Leo Buscaglia

"Never believe that a few caring people can't change the world. For, indeed, that's all who ever have." Margaret Mead

"Until you make peace with who you are, you will never be content with what you have." Doris Mortman

"A person who is nice to you, but rude to the waiter, is not a nice person." Dave Berry

"Marriage is our last, best chance to grow up." Joseph Barth

"God could not be everywhere, so He made mothers." Jewish Proverb

"Success is more permanent when you achieve it without destroying your principles." Walter Cronkite

"Self-delusion is pulling in your stomach when you step on the scale." Paul Sweeney

"Be willing to learn new lessons even if they contradict the lessons you learned yesterday." Ellen DeGeneres

"To say my fate is not tied to your fate is like saying, 'Your end of the boat is sinking.'" Hugh Downs

"When you aim for perfection, you discover it's a moving target." George Fisher

“Love of worldly things, like a snake has entangled the whole world in its coils. Whoever holds it lovingly, gets bitten by it.” Guru Amar Das

“Men put on many strange clothes and wander far away in search of God. But they forget to make their hearts clean. They shall neither find God, nor any happiness after death. O man, be a saint in your own home and follow the Guru’s way; practise truth, love and good works.” Guru Ram Das

“Let us begin to see beyond race, beyond culture, beyond gender, beyond sexual orientation, beyond religion, beyond, beyond all these externals and see each other as God's beloved. When we relate to others as God relates to us, our sense of being God's beloved deepens even more.” Trevor Hudson and Stephen D. Bryant
