Quote of the day

Any intelligent fool can make things bigger and more complex… It takes a touch of genius – and a lot of courage to move in the opposite direction. –Albert Einstein (1879-1955) German-born American theoretical physicist

Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could; some blunders and absurdities have crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day; you shall begin it serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense. — Ralp[h Waldo Emerson (1803-1882) AMerican author, poet, philosopher

Even though you may want to move forward in your life, you may have one foot on the brakes. In order to be free, we must learn how to let go. By learning to direct our attention, we learn to move in a new direction. Then, we really can release the hurt and the fear that are past. We really can refuse to entertain our old pain. The energy it takes to hang onto the past is holding you back from a new life. What is it you would let go of today? –Mary Manin Morrissey (1949- ), American author founder and spiritual leader of the Living Enrichment Center

If all the gold in the world were melted down into a solid cube it would be about the size of an eight room house. If a man got possession of all that gold – billions of dollars worth – he could not buy a friend, character, peace of mind, clear conscience or a sense of eternity. — Charles F. Bunning (1842-1911) American philosopher
