What Smart (Mostly Smart) People Said:
These are just a few more of the quotes I favor about all parts of life by people more gifted with thoughts and words than I. Seriously the word count on my ongoing collection of quotes is over 60,000 so I'll just pick a few gems from folks who make sense to me and help me make sense of the world.
“One of the most beautiful things that I can do for you- or that any one of us can do for another – is to serve each other. Its one of the most human things. Its one of the most basic things. But you do that from the heart. You do that because you want to connect with somebody. ‘Service, not servitude’ is something that should never be lost.”
Charlie Trotter, Chef Person
“Any change, any loss, does not make us victims. Others can shake you, surprise you, disappoint you, but they can’t prevent you from acting, from taking the situation you’re presented with and moving on. No matter where you are in life, no matter what your situation, you can always do something. You always have a choice and the choice can be power.”
Blaine Lee, Author Person
“We who lived in concentration camps can remember the men who walked through the huts comforting others, giving away their last piece of bread. They may have been few in number, but they offer sufficient proof that everything can be taken from a man but one thing: the last of human freedoms – to choose one’s attitude in any given set of circumstances – to choose one’s own way.”
Viktor Frankl, Genius Person
“We are not here to fit in, be well balanced, or provide exemple for others. We are here to be eccentric, different, perhaps strange, perhaps merely to add our small piece, our little clunky, chunky selves, to the great mosaic of being. As the gods intended, we are here to become more and more ourselves.”
James Hollis, I Think...A Union Person?
