I think Harry–and Richard–would approve

Standard

What do we live for if  it is not to make life less difficult for each other?~ George Eliot

There is more hunger for love and appreciation in this world than for bread~ Mother Teresa

A kind heart is a fountain of gladness, making everything within its vicinity freshen into smiles.~ Washington Irving

 

It takes so little to make people happy–just a touch, if we know how to give it, just a word, fitly spoken, or a slight readjustment of some bolt or pin or bearing in the delicate machinery of the human soul.~ Frank Crane

The best portion of a good man’s life, his little, nameless unremembered acts of kindness and of love.~ William Wordsworth

Be kind–everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle.~ Plato

Alone and without love we die. Life itself is as dependent upon relationships with others as it is on food.~M.N. Beck

Some words of wisdom I found inspirational and which reminded me of a certain fellow we all admire. Not having a particularly good day health-wise.  Sort of one of those “somebody took a Louisville slugger and beat the heck out of me” feelings. (A Louisville slugger is a famous brand of baseball bat FYI). Good to see all your comments, though, ladies and may I say keep up the good work. 😀

About fedoralady

I'm an LA native--Lower Alabama, that is. My husband of more than 30 years and I live here on a portion of my family's former farm with two gorgeous calicos and a handsome GSD mix. My background is art education, and over the years I've been a teacher, department store photographer, sales associate and a journalist. My husband, his business partner and I have Pecan Ridge Productions, a video production company, for which I shoot & edit video and stills and manage marketing. I also still write part-time for the local paper. I love movies, music, art, photography and books, and my tastes in all of them are eclectic.

  1. Great quotes! I particularly like the one by Plato. I copied it to keep. I’m so sorry you are fighting such a tough physical battle. Someone needs to break that bat and throw it into the swamp!

  2. Exactly what should happen to that bat – horrible bloody thing that it is! I sincerely hope you start feeling better soon. Remember we’re all here to back you up. 🙂

    I love all those quotes, too – especially the one from my favourite poet during high school, William Wordsworth.

    Don’t you just adore Richard’s poetry readings? I must go listen to a few again – especially Wordsworth’s “On Westminster Bridge” and Ted Hughes’ “Song” 😉

  3. Look at where Harry’s eyes are looking – her chest rather than her eyes! Cheeky bugger! I know he liked her in those pyjamas but…….naughty boy! 😉

  4. I’m so sorry, Angie. Yes, time for a little feline healing, “better living through chemistry”, and a reminder that you matter to us, a great deal. Take care, dear friend, and may this pass quickly.

    Then there’s Aldous Huxley: “Be a little kinder.”

  5. Lovely, moving quotes. My favourites are the Plato and the one from Mother Theresa. I’m so sorry you haven’t been feeling well! Sending you healing vibes! *hugs*
