INTELLIGENT INTENTION

"Our actions are the results of our intentions and our intelligence."

E. Stanley Jones, 20th century theologian

Hopefully you are intelligent enough to see this.

However, if not, but your intention is to accept it as true, good enough.

SELF FORGIVENESS

"How unhappy is he who cannot forgive himself."

Publilius Syrus, 1st century BC Syrian slave/Latin writer

William Blake said, "It is easier to forgive an enemy than to forgive a friend."

Even more difficult to forgive ourselves.

More important too for if you can't forgive yourself how can you ever truly forgive anyone else.

Them, you, let it go.

MONEY FOR WHAT YOU DO, NOT WHAT YOU COULD DO

"Ben Franklin may have discovered electricity but it is the man who invented the meter who made the money."

Earl Warren, 30th governor of California, 14th Chief Justice of the US Supreme Court

Well, maybe not exactly, but the core message is true.

It's not what you create as much as what you do with what you create.

WHAT YOU SAY, HOW YOU SAY IT, BOTH EQUALLY IMPORTANT

"The first principle of a free society is an untrammeled flow of words in an open forum."

Adlai E. Stevenson II, 20th century American politician

In society, at work, in all relationships; you have a right to express your opinion, along with an obligation to do so in an honest, respectful way.

SOME, JUST NOT TOO MUCH


"Trust not too much to appearances."

Virgil, 1st century BC Roman poet

Because appearances may only be what might be not what is.

Anything important to you should be more than just apparent.
