Shared Wisdom: A Rush of Words–Part 2
As promised in my posting on September 10th, here are some more “words of wisdom” from others. They are almost all simple one-liners – but they are not in the least bit simplistic!
“Your present circumstances don’t determine where you can go; they merely determine where you start.” (Anonymous)
“Even the rich are hungry for love, for being cared for, for being wanted, for having someone to call their own.” (Mother Teresa)
“I have long since come to believe that people never mean half of what they say, and that it is best to disregard their talk and judge only their actions.”
“If there is any secret to this life I live, this is it: the sound of what cannot be seen sings within everything that can, and there is nothing more to it than that.”
“I always treat people as if they have already reached the goal I have for them.” (Thomas Merton)
“If I am not for myself, who will be? And if I am for myself alone, then what am I? And if not now, when?” (Rabbi Hillel)
“Whether you think you can or think you can’t – you are right.” (Henry Ford)
“One day your life will flash before your eyes. Make sure it’s worth watching.” (Anonymous)
“Life is not a problem to be solved, but a reality to be experienced.” (Soren Kierkegaard)
“God always gives His best to those who leave the choice with Him.” (Jim Elliot)
So take these words of wisdom into your day today and spend some time pondering their meaning in your heart. Carry them deep into your soul and see how and if they apply to the “reality you are experiencing”!!
