“If you have build castles in the air,
your work need not be lost;
That is where they should be.
Now put the foundations under them.”
– Henry D. Thoreau
“”If it can be verified, we don’t need faith….
Faith is for that which lies on the other side of reason.
Faith is what makes life bearable, with all its tragedies
and ambiguities and sudden, startling joys.”
“The soul itself, the soul of each one of us, is to
each one of us a mystery. It hides in the dark and broods,
and consciousness cannot tell us of its workings.”
“We all want to make the most of our lives….to become
the highest expressions of ourselves. It begins with
our own awakening. There’s no better way to find that aha!
“Let parents bequeath to their children not riches, but the spirit of reverence.” – Plato
In Celebration of the Week of Respect and Anti-bullying
“Respect builds the character and defines who we are”
If we practice it together every day we will go very far
Respect defines us as human beings
We learn it by example and by seeing
Others put to practice the Golden Rule
Children need to know this is cool.
Respect is a lifelong tool.
A week, a month may create some awareness
But to build it strong and infuse it our hearts
will not allow us to pull apart
Respect is not a season; it is a way of life
Let’s respect one another and get rid of the strife
The world will certainly be a better place
When we stand as one and the hate erase.
