Words of Wisdom

"Live simply that others might simply live."   ~Elizabeth Ann Seton

"Besides the noble art of getting things done, there is the noble art of leaving things undone.  The wisdom of life consists in the elimination of non-essentials."  ~Lin Yutang

"Have nothing in your houses that you do not know to be useful or believe to be beautiful."  ~William Morris

"You have succeeded in life when all you really want is only what you really need."  ~Vernon Howard

"Strong people don't put others down...  They lift others up."  -Michael P. Watson

"Sometimes the bad things that happen in our lives put us directly on the path to the best things that will ever happen to us."  

"Life is full of give and take.  Give thanks and take nothing for granted."  

"There is only two options:  make progress or make excuses."  

"Creativity is intelligence having fun."  - Einstein

"Don't waste your time with explanations, people only hear what they want to hear."  -Paulo Coelbo  

“What many people don't realize is that we can change our attitudes towards life. It takes some work, but it can be done. The more we accept other people and their faults and quirks, the less judgmental we become. The more we decide to share the goodness that's within us, the less selfish we become, and the less likely we are to hoard or hang on to material things. The more we learn about other people's emotional or physical problems, the more understanding and compassionate we become. Your attitude is one of your gifts to the world, all day, every day. What kind of gift do you give? And is it a gift that remains steady no matter what happens to you?” - Tom Walsh
