Good stuff, thanks. Nice ship - just setting up the sails ...

As for intentions, J G Bennett pointed out that we often judge others by their actions and ourselves by our intentions.

The Princesses Rhyme and Reason touched on this too, in The Phantom Tollbooth (Norton Juster)

Time is -
Too slow for those who Wait;
Too swift for those who Fear;
Too short for those who Grieve;
Too long for those who Rejoice;
but for those who love
Time is Eternity.
Robet Schuller

These two are my favorite:

"The best way to prepare for tomorrow is to make today's consciousness serene & harmonious. All other good things will follow upon that." Emmet Fox

"Like the bee, gathering honey from different flowers, the wise man accepts the essence of different scriptures and sees only the good in all religions." Srimad Bhagavatam

I saw this one on a wall in a restaurant and couldn't help but smile:

"The world is tough. The world is tougher if you are stupid." John Wayne

A friend of mine opened his wife's closet and picked up a beautifully
wrapped package:

'This, - he said - isn't any ordinary package.'

He unwrapped the box and stared at both the paper and the box.

'She got this the first time we went to New York , 8 or 9 years ago..
She has never put it on , was saving it for a special occasion.

Well, I guess this is it.

He got near the bed and placed the gift box next to the other clothing
he was taking to the funeral house, his wife had just died.

He turned to me and said:

'Never save something for a special occasion.

Every day in your life is a special occasion'.

I still think those words changed my life.

Now I read more and clean less.

I sit on the porch without worrying about anything.

I spend more time with my family, and less at work.

I understood that life should be a source of experience to be lived up
to, not survived through.

I no longer keep anything.

I use crystal glasses every day....

I'll wear new clothes to go to the supermarket, if I feel like it.

I don't save my special perfume for special occasions, I use it whenever
I want to.

The words 'Someday...' and ' One Day....' are fading away from my
dictionary.

If it's worth seeing, listening or doing, I want to see, listen or do it
now........

I don't know what my friend's wife would have done if she knew she
wouldn't be there the next morning, this nobody can tell.

I think she might have called her relatives and closest friends.
She might call old friends to make peace over past quarrels.

I'd like to think she would go out for Chinese, her favorite food.

It's these small things that I would regret not doing, if I knew my time
had come.

Each day, each hour, each minute, is special.

Live for today, for tomorrow is promised to no-one.

I don't normally pass these along, but this one hit home resently. Sometimes we all get wrapped up in the 'doing' of the times and all the negativity that is around us. We forget to look for things to appreciate and in doing so sometimes forget to live (or actually enjoy life).

I love this school.
