Robert Hill Sr. - ulterior motives


"When I give, it does not come with strings. I’m not keeping track of what you owe me. When I give, I choose to do so without ulterior motives. I give because I’m genuine. I give because I know what it’s like to be without. To long for and be ignored. To speak and not be heard. To care for and have nothing returned. When I give it’s because I get it. It’s because I know the value in what I have in my heart and I refuse to let the world stop me from sharing that. But when things start being taken for granted. When you no longer appreciate my sincerity. I won’t switch, I won’t get angry, and I won’t be spiteful. I’ll just get smart and I’ll change your role in my life. Because when I give, I’m all in. But when I’m done, there’s no looking back." ~Robert Hill Sr.

Elder Neil L. Andersen - calling

"Motherhood is not a hobby, it is a calling. It is not something to do if you can squeeze the time in. It is what GOD gave you time for." ~Elder Neil L. Andersen from I Love My Family

MY PICK of the DAY

"Those who love you for who you are and not for what you can do for them are the best kind of people to have in your life." ~Anon


José Micard Teixeira - I NO LONGER


“I no longer have patience for certain things, not because I’ve become arrogant, but simply because I reached a point in my life where I do not want to waste more time with what displeases me or hurts me. I have no patience for cynicism, excessive criticism and demands of any nature. I lost the will to please those who do not like me, to love those who do not love me and to smile at those who do not want to smile at me.

I no longer spend a single minute on those who lie or want to manipulate. I decided not to coexist anymore with pretense, hypocrisy, dishonesty and cheap praise. I do not tolerate selective erudition nor academic arrogance. I do not adjust either to popular gossiping. I hate conflict and comparisons. I believe in a world of opposites and that’s why I avoid people with rigid and inflexible personalities. In friendship I dislike the lack of loyalty and betrayal. I do not get along with those who do not know how to give a compliment or a word of encouragement. Exaggerations bore me and I have difficulty accepting those who do not like animals. And on top of everything I have no patience for anyone who does not deserve my patience.”

-José Micard Teixeira (words Meryl Streep live by)

John Powell - new depths

"If you knew me in the past, please do not think that I am the same person that you are meeting today. I have experienced more of life, I have encountered new depths in those I love, I have suffered and prayed, and I am different." ~John Powell

Daniel Bond - expectations

"Like goals, if expectations are too high then they no longer serve as something to aim for, but rather a stick to beat yourself with.” ~Daniel Bond

Michael Faudet - arms of a dream

"May you fall asleep in the arms of a dream, so beautiful, you'll cry when you awake." ~Michael Faudet

Diana Cooper - universe

♥*✿*•♥

B. Hamilton - sugar and spice

"Courage, sacrifice, determination, commitment, toughness, heart, talent, guts. That's what little girls are made of; the heck with sugar and spice." ~B. Hamilton

Darren John Maxwell - serve a purpose

"The sad truth is that there are some people who will only be there for you as long as you have something they need. When you no longer serve a purpose to them, they will leave. The good news is, if you tough it out, you’ll eventually weed these people out of your life and be left with some great people you can count on. We rarely lose friends, we just gradually figure out who our real ones are." ~Darren John Maxwell

Shel Silverstein - voice

♥*✿*•♥

Anita Moorjani - painting

♥*✿*•♥

"Learning to love others begins with learning to love ourselves unconditionally first. I will never let myself down, treat myself like a doormat, or make myself small so others can feel big. I have learned that this is the biggest gift that I give not only to myself, but also to the planet, because I paint others with the same brush as I use on myself." -Anita Moorjani

Mikee Cojuangco-Jaworski - leave a good mark

♥*✿*•♥

"My mom would always tell me - Every time you cross paths with someone, give them the courtesy due to them. It’s probably the first and last time the person is ever going to see you. So better leave a good mark." ~Mikee Cojuangco-Jaworski

MY PICK FOR TODAY

A timely one:

♥*✿*•♥

"At some point you will realize that you have done too much for someone, that the only next possible step to do is to stop. Leave them alone. Walk away. It’s not like you’re giving up, and it’s not like you shouldn’t try. It’s just that you have to draw the line of determination from desperation. What is truly yours will eventually be yours, and what is not, no matter how hard you try, will never be." ~Anon

St. Fulbert of Chartres - Your Greatness


"How brief is our span of life compared with the time since you created the universe. How tiny we are compared with the enormity of your universe. How trivial are our concerns compared with the complexity of your universe. How stupid we are compared with the genius of your creation. Yet during every minute and every second of our lives you are present, within and around us. You give your whole and undivided attention to each and every one of us. Our concerns are your concerns. And you are infinitely patient with our stupidity. I thank you with all my heart - knowing that my thanks are worthless compared to your greatness." ~St. Fulbert of Chartres (960-1028)

Clinton Nzedimma - from a Man's Perspective


"A Man doesn’t have to be a car owner, neither does he have to be Prince or a Hero to win a woman’s Heart ( Not just a Woman's Heart but a Real Woman's Heart). Women are touched by simple things and kind gestures. What impresses a woman in a man is the way he respects her values and ethics. Women Love Genuine, Confident and Sincere men. A Man doesn’t need to fabricate anything to impress a woman he just needs to be utterly honest and straightforward. Women don’t look for chivalry or great looks but they value Honesty and Truthfulness in a Relationship. You can win her heart and charm her by being genuine rather than being fake. You can touch a Woman’s Soul with Love, Affection and Respect." ~Clinton Nzedimma

Cecelia Ahern Quotes

♥*✿*•♥

“Finding someone you love and who loves you back is a wonderful, wonderful feeling. But finding a true soul mate is an even better feeling. A soul mate is someone who understands you like no other, loves you like no other, will be there for you forever, no matter what. They say that nothing lasts forever, but I am a firm believer in the fact that for some, love lives on even after we’re gone.” ~Cecelia Ahern

"Sometimes, we lost sight of ourselves when we're not paying attention." ~Cecelia Ahern

William J. Clinton - difference


"The real differences around the world today are not between Jews and Arabs; Protestants and Catholics; Muslims, Croats, and Serbs. The real differences are between those who embrace peace and those who would destroy it; between those who look to the future and those who cling to the past; between those who open their arms and those who are determined to clench their fists." ~William J. Clinton, 1997 from Sye of Relief

Francis Kong - healthy attitude

Renante M Areola - permaculture


"During the middle ages, English aristocrats usually hide where their wealth and food are coming from. They build vast ornamented lawns and gardens infront of their manor houses to impress the middle class. The middle class then copied that idea and carried it with them overseas... in USA, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, etc. Every one nowadays has that little aristocrat thing infront of their homes. Permaculture intends to attack that idea of nonsense energy consuming, costly and unproductive habit. We are not aristocrat neither belong to the middle class; grow your own food infront and all around your homes." ~Renante M Areola

Peter T. McIntyre - ALWAYS RIGHT
