A REVOLUTIONARY THOUGHT




"Every revolution was first a thought in one man’s mind."

Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803-1882) U.S. poet/essayist/lecturer.

Not all revolutions succeed but none of those only thought, never began, ever will.

What is your revolution?

IF IT AIN'T BROKE . . .

"Striving to better, oft we mar what's well."

William Shakespeare (1564-1616) British poet/playwright.

Change what isn't "well" leaving "what's well" alone.

The difficult part is deciding which is which.

Do so carefully.

MUCH MORE THAN THE NAME

"There is a scarcity of friendship, but not of friends."

Thomas Fuller (1608-1661) British clergyman and author.

How appropriate in this day of Facebook "friends".

Don't be fooled; many, maybe most of yours, are not to you nor you to them.

Strive for friendship not friends.

PROBLEMS OF THE NIGHT

"The longest day soon comes to an end."

Proverb
We shouldn't but do carry our problems into the night.

The older I get the more capable I am of putting aside my concerns, at least for awhile.

The younger you learn to do that the sooner you will find solutions.

WHAT YOU WILL DO MORE THAN WHAT YOU DID DO

"Good character will be recognized as a result of many acts, and sometimes lost, the result of just one."

Unknown

There isn't one among or gone before us who hasn't done and/or said things that reflect poorly on their character.

You, me, all humans.

But more important than what we did wrong is what we do after to make the wrong right.
