The cruelest dream, reality. — The Offspring

Some days, I get a bit cynical.  On days like this, I like listening to fairly angry, despairing music.  Just thought I would share.

Quote Wednesday — Love Edition

Love is the triumph of imagination over intelligence. — HL Menchen

A kiss is a lovely trick designed by nature to stop speech when words become superfluous. — Ingrid Bergman

Love is of all passions the strongest, for it attacks simultaneously the head, the heart, and the senses. — Voltaire

Love is a fruit in season at all times, and within reach of every hand. — Mother Teresa

Treasure the love you receive above all.  It will survive long after you gold and good health have vanished. — Og Mandino

Sometimes I’m in a mushy, lovey-dovey mood.  So I thought some great love quotes would be perfect for today.

Quote Wednesday — FDR and MLK

The nation that destroys its soul destroys itself. — Franklin Delano Roosevelt

We will not be satisfied until justice rolls down like water and righteousness like a mighty stream.  Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere. — Martin Luther King Jr.

Been thinking a lot lately about civil rights.   They’ve been in the news a lot.  Bottom line: everyone has a right to live as long as it doesn’t hurt others.  And the big issues right now don’t actually hurt anyone.  We need to look at domestic policy as a protection of civil rights, not as a way of ensuring our personal agendas or ways of life.

Quote Wednesday — Montaigne, Socrates, and Fried

The value of life lies not in the length of days but in the use of them. — Montaigne

The greatest way to live with honor in this world is to be what we pretend to be. — Socrates

It is no sin to attempt and fail.  The only sin is not to make the attempt. — Suellen Fried

Some wise words to start off this hump day.  I especially love the first quote from Montaigne.  This summer I am all about taking advantage of the days given.  The boys and I are constantly on the move, spending as much time together as we can.

Quote Wednesday — Stair and Hufstedler

If I had to live my life over again, I’d dare to make more mistakes next time. — Nadine Stair

Security is not the meaning of my life.  Great opportunities are worth the risks. — Shirley Hufstedler

Let’s be risk takers…  But I am a bit scared to take risks.  Maybe let’s start small.  Baby steps toward risk.  A plan.  I like it.

Quote Wednesday — Macinness

Nothing is interesting if you’re not interested. — Helen Macinness

Time and time again I come back to this idea.  You can’t force people to get involved if they aren’t interested in the subject.  I’ve been trying to get the boys into new foods and activities.  Unfortunately this isn’t working very well.  I need to let the boys come to me.  But the waiting is killing me!
