Thought for the Week

Today’s Thought is a couple of definitions that tickled my funny bone:

KNOWLEDGE is knowing that a tomato is a fruit

WISDOM is knowing not to put it in a fruit salad.

Have a great week. Wasn’t it great to see the sun again?

“If I Had my Life to Live Over,

I’d dare to make more mistakes next time. I’d relax, I would limber up. I would be sillier than I have been this trip. I would take fewer things seriously. I would take more chances. I would climb more mountains and swim more rivers. I would eat more ice cream and less beans. I would perhaps have more actual troubles, but I’d have fewer imaginary ones.

You see, I’m one of those people who live sanely hour after hour, day after day. Oh, I’ve had my moments, and if I had to do it over again, I’d have more of them. In fact, I’d try to have nothing else. Just moments, one after another, instead of living so many years ahead of each day. I’ve been one of those persons who never goes anywhere without a thermometer, a hot water bottle, a raincoat and a parachute. If I had to do it again, I would travel lighter than I have.

If I had my life to liver over, I would start barefoot earlier in the spring, and stay that way later in the fall. I would to go more dances. I would ride more merry-go-rounds. I would pick more daisies.”

– Nadine Stair, 85 years old, Louisville, KY

A Cherokee saying:

We have taught our children the earth is our mother

Whatever befalls the earth befalls the sons of the earth

This we know.

The earth does not belong to man. The man belongs to earth.

This we know.

All things are connected. Like the blood which unites our family.

All things are connected.

Whatever befalls the earth befalls the sons of the earth.

Man did not weave the web of life. He’s merely a strand in it.

Whatever he does to the web he does to himself.

AiSv Nv wa do hi ya do.
