Inspiring Quotes Wednesday


Leo Buscaglia
Too often we under estimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around.


William James
The greatest discovery of my generation is that man can alter his life simply by altering his attitude of mind.


Doc Childre

When you slow down, step back a moment and put things in perspective, you can then move on with more efficiency. It only takes a moment to adapt and control how you respond.


Kahlil Gibran

Life without love is like a tree without blossoms or fruit.


Chinese proverb
If I keep a green bough in my heart, then the singing bird will come.

I haven't been a follower long enough to have seen your quotes before. Love the first three especially. I need to tattoo them on my brain. The Doc Childre one is especially applicable. The twins splashed water up to the ceiling during bath time. It was a mess. I screamed and was angry and made them cry. Now that I look back on it, I should have reacted MUCH differently. I'm sad now about my stupid reaction. UGH!! I needed to have looked at in the proper perspective. Damn, I failed again.
