October Roses 049

To borrow a statement from someone to illustrate a point.

The reason we borrow the passage is because we usually

quote an expert who can validate our point.

We do not seek financial advice from the beggar on the corner.

We do not seek out career advice from the unemployable.

We do not seek out marriage advice from the spinster or bachelor.

We do not seek emotional support from the mentally imbalanced.

We seek advice from those that have been there and done that.

“Those,” are the quotable experts.

Quotable ideas are shortcuts to explaining life.

A Higher Power gave all those experts the skills and the talents

to make those quotes so that we, who read them, do not have to

continue to struggle to figure out life on life’s terms.

“Sooner or later we all quote our mothers.”
~Bern Williams

Motivation and life, lived one day at a time, are the good

feelings that the best quotes inspire within us.

“The best and most beautiful things in the world
must be felt with the heart.”
– Helen Keller

A good quote can jump start a sleeping brain.

“Whether you think that you can, or that you can’t,
you are usually right.”

~ Henry Ford (1863-1947)

A good quote can motivate us to try a little harder.

“I find that the harder I work, the more luck I seem to have.”

~ Thomas Jefferson (1743-1826)

A good quote can affect our attitude.

“And remember, no matter where you go, there you are.”

A good quote can change our behaviors.

“Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again
and expecting different results.”
Albert Einstein

Today, be original, or not, quote if you must, but always

be kind to the friend who is there for you.

Today, borrow what you must to make your point,

but give unconditional love to all, your Higher Power

wants you to do the next right thing in service to others.

Today, be patient and tolerant, nobody is perfect.

“Famous remarks are very seldom quoted correctly.”
~ Simeon Strunsky

Today, be the person your Higher Power wants you to be, and

quote from every Good Book that the Spirit of the Universe

has inspired man to write.

Happiness is being properly quoted.

Happiness is helping someone help themselves.
