…It’s Wednesday, a good day for contemplation:

“The fault, dear Brutus, is not in the stars, but in ourselves.” Shakespeare

 “It’s easier to program a child than a VCR.” Ellen Battzedek

“What does it mean to become a better man? A great man?  A great man is largely forgotten by the public. He doesn't stand on top of a mountain waving a flag saying, "Look at me—I'm a great man." A great man often disappears into the ether. Hardly anyone notices that he was even there, apart from his family and close friends. He was reliable. He showed up. He was there. He was useful where he could be. He made mistakes. Tried to make better of those mistakes. Doesn't mean you have to cure cancer or understand the theory of relativity. It's not necessarily as rock-and-roll or as cool as you might think. Part of being a great man is accepting that. To dare to be average and normal is actually a pathway to becoming a great man. To have more humility. To accept responsibility more. To just get on with what's in front of your face. “ Tom Hardy

“Look at everything as though you were seeing it either for the first or last time.” Betty Smith

“Be the change you want to see in the world.” Gandhi

“The glory of friendship is not the outstretched hand, nor the kindly smile, nor the joy of companionship; it is the spiritual inspiration that comes to one when he discovers that someone else believes in him and is willing to trust him with his friendship.”  Ralph Waldo Emerson

“I always tell the truth, even when I lie.” Scarface

“If we are facing in the right direction, all we have to do is keep on walking.”  Buddhist Proverb

“Nothing’s personal, eternity is only a word—kind as consolation, but as brief.” Laure-Anne Bosseelaar
