This Life

“Life is never a material, a substance to be molded. If you want to know, life is the principle of self-renewal; it is constantly renewing and remaking and changing and transfiguring itself.” from Doctor Zhivago by Boris Pasternak.

And I believe that.

I believe that we will all end up some place base on the choices that we have made, are making and will make.

But our journey is not all about our present, our past, whether good or bad, will be with us. We will have to decide, or in the case of some, have already decided, what to do with it.

“Living in the past is a dull and lonely business; looking back strains the neck muscles and causes you to bump into people not going your way.” Edna Ferber

We will fail at some things, but “My greatest concern is not whether you have failed, but whether you are content with your failure.” Abraham Lincoln

There will always be a blue sky no matter how many storms come our way.

We must trust those we have call friends, and remember, “A true friend never gets in your way unless you happen to be going down.” Arnold Glasow

As for success, “Success is a journey, not a destination.” Unkown

And for who we want to be. “Your personality should be an external expression of your character.” Tim LaHaye

And just like a full moon on a August night of this year, 2012 . . . “That it will never come again is what makes life so sweet.” Emily Dickinson

Have a moon morning and a starry night. 🙂

Have a lovely, sunflower day. 🙂

Elvis has left the building, and I’m following his Cadillac. 🙂 So until then, this is the end my friends, for a few . . . Taking a MUCH NEEDED AND MUCH DESERVED  BREAK. Yippee!!!!So until after then:-

“Wishing to be friends is quick, but friendship is a slowly ripening fruit.”

“The entire object of true education is to make people not merely do the right things, but enjoy the right things.” John Ruskin

“In light of eternity, what one believes is far more important than what one achieves.” Our Daily Bread

“That it will never come again is what makes life so sweet.” Emily Dickinson

“Sometimes one is guided by what they say of themselves, and very frequently by what other people say of them, without giving oneself time to deliberate and judge.” Elinor from Sense and Sensibility by Jane Austen

“We often confuse unconditional love with unconditional approval. God loves us without conditions, but does not approve of every human behavior. God doesn’t approve of betrayal, violence, hatred, suspicion, and all other expressions of evil, because they all contradict the love God wants to instill in the human heart.” Henri Nouwen

“Love . . ., what is it?”

Everyone enjoy and have a great, fantastic, beautiful, summer. 🙂
