that knows not victory or defeat.
- Theodore Roosevelt

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,

while the other brings us joy. I choose joy.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

Oh, the comfort, the inexpressible comfort
of feeling safe with a person;
having neither to weigh thoughts nor measure words,

knowing that a faithful hand will take and sift them,
keep what is worth keeping, and then,
with a breath of kindness, blow the rest away.
- George Eliot

I am neither bitter nor cynical but I do wish
there was less immaturity in political thinking.

of life's cycles are an inherent part of their nature.

The lion eats the zebra -
one is nourished, one dies - neither failed.

You are not your mind. You, a Spiritual BEing,
are neither your mind nor your body.
Mind and body are your tools - to use as you choose.
Sometimes your body appears to have a will of its own,
as when it twitches or pains.
Likewise, your mind often appears to have its own will.
That incessant chattering of regret, disappointment, guilt,
shame, foreboding, worry, and fear
is your Rattlesnake Mind striking off on its own.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

nor to unkindly probe their flaws.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie
