People are unreasonable, illogical and self-centered.
Love them anyway!
If you do good, people will accuse you
of selfish, ulterior motives.
Do good anyway!
If you are successful, you will win
false friends and enemies.
The good you do will be forgotten tomorrow.
Do good anyway!
Honesty and frankness make you vulnerable.
Be honest and frank anyway!
What you spend years building may be
People really need help
but may attack you if you help them.
Help them anyway!
Give the world the best you have
and you’ll get kicked in the teeth.
Give the world the best you’ve got anyway!
Since 1995, astronomers have pointed our Hubble Space Telescope toward regions of space we previously thought to be “empty” of matter, mapping new views with time exposures lasting days. Now in combination with the Chandra X-ray Laboratory, the November 2014 composite above shows that “empty” space is actually home to uncounted galaxies and worlds beyond our human vision and understanding.
We all have the chance to live our dream. It means making a lot of right decisions, focused on the right path of attainable goals.
One of Frank’s patrons returned from a South Pacific sailing vacation and commissioned Frank to paint a new work. She wanted a composite scene from her memorable time with a friend. Frank painted the “Dream” in acrylic on a 30” x 15” stretched canvas.
Live your dream. Be inspired by it.
Just make sure it is realistic, and down the right path…and you know what is right.
As we think about how we are going to improve our life experience this year, simple, yet strong wisdom has the best chance of sticking and making the needed impact.
So, I worked up a poster for above my computer that combined a simple quote with a public domain photo of the person being quoted, Albert Einstein. He is noted for many memorable bits of wisdom, but this one seems to have particular value now, as we all grapple with the mess around us, and try figure out how to do better in the future. Here is my new poster and the quote:
“We can’t solve problems by using the same kind of thinking we used when we created them.”
These few words offer the notion that a radical change is needed if we are indeed going to truly move past our current problems. This is not to say we won’t find other problems to replace them, but sometimes a change of scenery does us a world of good.
Here’s wishing you the courage and strength to think differently,
