in the realm of faith and morals.

or exercise their revolutionary right to overthrow it.

the remedy is not to take it from them but to inform their discretion.

While the laughter of joy is in
full harmony with our deeper life,
the laughter of amusement

Writers, alas, have to be fools in public,

However carefully we plan our future,
we are always climbing the steps to nowhere.

that we have an intent for our lives,

that we truly have no idea how our lives will turn out -
and that is good.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

Carpe diem! Rejoice while you are alive; enjoy the day;
live life to the fullest;

While it is natural to feel some degree of
need for the approval of others, be careful.
If you find yourself unwilling to
take actions that others disapprove of,
you have lost control of your own life
and have given your destiny to others.
An excessive need-for-approval
is a sign of low self-esteem,
and in severe cases, a condition termed co-dependency.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

Imagination is more important than knowledge.
For knowledge is limited to all we now know and understand,

and stand with him while he is right,
and part with him when he goes wrong.

Celebrate! Celebration is an expression of Gratitude.
Gratitude is like the prayer, while
Celebration is the hymn and sacred dance.
Celebration is its own road to happiness.

Truth always rests with the minority,
and the minority is always stronger than the majority,
because the minority is generally formed by those
who really have an opinion,
while the strength of a majority is illusory,
formed by the gangs who have no opinion -
and who, therefore, in the next instant
(when it is evident that the minority is the stronger)
assume its opinion... while truth again reverts to a new minority.
- Soren Kierkegaard

When everything goes dead wrong.

stand with him while he is right
and part with him when he goes wrong.

My choice resides in my perspective.
While I certainly do not control climate and markets
and roadways and others, I do control myself
and my response to all those circumstances. I do indeed.
- Mary Anne Radmacher

While you are proclaiming peace with your lips,
be careful to have it even more fully in your heart.

but what we do consistently.

Every optimist moves along with progress and hastens it,
while every pessimist would keep the worlds at a standstill.

ignorance and crime, and dries up
all the fountains of joy in the world.
- Helen Keller

I strive toward my vision,
while accepting gratefully whatever life offers me.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

that is, a future which was not predictable.

after all God will not help him

while fooling most people into believing I had.

You set a goal and create a plan to achieve it;

based your plan change - they always do.
The challenge is to retain your goals
while adapting your tactics.
Relax and stay flexible in order to reach
your goals and maintain your happiness.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

it is best at least to rearrange
their prejudices once in a while.

Pay It Forward.
Gift future generations in proportion to your gratitude.
The nature of life is that we pay forward
our biological creation and nurture.
Our parents gift us with life and nurture,
and we gift our children with life and nurture.
While this much is essential to continued human existence,
choose to take "pay it forward" farther - much farther.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

Look at this butterfly, so beautiful, so delicate.
I can enjoy this butterfly from a distance,
but if I touched her, she would die.
While not quite as delicate as butterflies,
people also need private space and private time
away from the demands of the world -
even away from the attentions of those
with whom they are most bonded.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

The "stories" we choose to tell about our past
are never what a video camera would have recorded.
We can tell a sad story or a happy story,
and neither story is either
more accurate or "better" than the other story.
The difference is that one story causes us to suffer,
while the other brings us joy. I choose joy.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

- Albert Schweitzer

When you follow your bliss, you put yourself on a kind of track
that has been there all the while waiting for you,
and the life you ought to be living is the one you are living.
When you can see that, you begin to meet people
who are in the field of your bliss,
and they open the doors to you.
I say, follow your bliss and don't be afraid,
and doors will open where you didn't know they were going to be.
If you follow your bliss,
doors will open for you that wouldn't have opened for anyone else.
- Joseph Campbell

While civilization has been improving our houses,
it has not equally improved
the men who are to inhabit them.
It has created palaces, but it was
not so easy to create noblemen and kings.
- Henry David Thoreau
