With this pandemic going on and all the lifestyle changes we are facing, I thought it would be helpful to share this short list of great quotes from some great people. These lift my brain and mood. Hope it does that same for all you readers!

  • The fact is, that to do anything in the world worth doing, we must not stand back shivering and thinking of the cold and danger, but jump in and scramble through as well as we can. ~Robert Cushing

  • The only journey is the journey within. ~Rainer Maria Rilke
  • Know thyself means this, that you get acquainted with what you know, and what you can do. ~Menander
  • Yes, know thyself: in great concerns or small, be this thy care, for this, my friend, is all.
    ~Juvenal
  • Collect as precious pearls the words of the wise and virtuous. ~Abd-el-Kadar
  • If we do not plant knowledge when young, it will give us no shade when we are old. ~Lord Chesterfield

P.S. I need to make a little correction for last week’s post. I had originally said you can look up Jeff Griffin on Amazon. I meant Google! Here is his website here.
