Thoughts to ponder (a continuing saga)

Still waters run deep

The calm before the storm

Listen, learn

Flowers are Red – listen to the song sung by Harry Chapin. Read the lyrics and really really take a moment to ponder what we have done

“What is your name? Speak yourself”  – BTS – Kim Nam Jun; 2018 September 24, UNICEF address – Read this for yourself. Take a moment and think. The music, their words reach across generations. We are never to old to learn something new. We are never to old to find that dream. To “speak yourself” Only by finally acknowledging ourselves can we pave the way for future generations, and sometimes we must follow the younger generations. Speak a truth and provide a safe haven and encouragement “Go. Go make the world a better place than I ever dreamed.”

Ogres are like onions (Shrek). People are like jewels. (I’ll explain this one on another thought trail – but please ponder)

Smile – It’ll make people wonder what you know

Stop and smell the roses. Don’t pick them, leave them for the next person to enjoy their beauty.

Be wary of the quiet ones.

Do unto others as you would have others do unto you.

People who live in glass houses should throw no stones.

“Let him who is without sin among you be the first to throw a stone at her” John 8:7 ESV Study Bible 2008

“… First take the log out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to take out the speck that is in your brother’s eye.” Luke 6:42 ESV Study Bible 2008

The road to hell was paved with good intentions

Nothing worth having is not worth working for

To the winner go the spoils – put a positive bend to this, if you work for it you are winning

>> I’m looing for things to inspire, to help move forward. IF you loot at all the sayings I gathered so far, they are ones we know. We speak. We reference. So why if we, as a collective, know these; do we not abide by them?

>> Add more quotes – if you where any of the above come from, please provide your references so we can learn too. I would love to amend the above to include a link to where people can locate the history of the quote or where they can start looking if interested in furthering education.
