Daily Quotes

I’ve had to do some reorganizing in one of my Quote books and there were some quotes that I thought that I would share with you today.

 

“Life’s journey is not traveled on a freeway devoid of obstacles, pitfalls, and snares. Rather it is a pathway marked by forks and turnings. Decisions are constantly before us. To make them wisely, courage is needed; the courage to say no; the courage to say yes.  Decisions do determine destiny.”

Thomas S Monson

As most of us know; our daily life is not always straight forward, nor is it a bed of roses, or maybe it is, since roses do have thorns, (most types do).  So we often have to make decisions based on the information we have to hand at the time.  Not all of them will be the right decision, but we can always reassess that decision when we have further information.

To follow another line of thought I came across two quotes from one of my favorite comedians, Robin Williams, taken from his character in the movie, “Dead Poets Society,”

“No matter what people tell you, words and ideas can change the world.”

Robin Williams

This is so true.  History shows what idea’s and words can do.  All the tools, inventions, Technology etc, come because of an idea that some one has had. e.g. Thomas Edison – The electric light bulb.  The same is true of words, one of the greatest playwrights of the western world; William Shakespeare, is great example of the power of words in our modern age.  Words have the power to uplift us or bring us down, words do carry weight let no one try to convince you otherwise.

Also this quote, again from “Dead Poets Society,” but this time talking about the pupose of education.

“I thought the purpose of education was to learn to think for yourself.”

 

– Dead Poets Society                                                                           Robin Williams

Well thats all from me for now, Adieu till the next time.

Quotes of The Day

I just love enthusiasm, it can add luster to and lift your day. Make time seem to fly, and just  make your day great.

A number of years ago, an associate of mine helped me to understand the power of being positive and enthusiastic about life, regardless of people or weather or whatever the situation he was in.  He  always maintained an enthusiastic approach to what ever situation he was in.  But he explained to me as I got to know him better, that he was not always the positive, enthusiastic person I had come to know.  He had just learned the value of an enthusiastic and positive approach to life.

So if you . . .

 

“Mix enthusiasm with your work, and it will not seem hard or monotonous.”

Again . . .

“Enthusiasm is a state of mind that inspires and arouses one to put into action the task at hand.”

There is more I would like to share on this subject but I will leave these few quotes with you now, until my next post, Adieu my friends.
