A THOUGHT 
FOR TODAY'S LIVING 

     "The thought that goes into the giving 
       of a gift to a friend or loved one is so 
       much more important than the value 
       of the gift"                      
                        John Gruber (1768--1857)


TIMELY THOUGHTS & REFLECTIONS

One may be very happy a while away from home, but he is very glad to return to it. The plainest old familiar dish is better then the daintiest epicurean bill of fare abroad. One’s own little room, with its handy compact belongings is preferable to all the marbled halls swept through by silk-clad dames.

From The Almanack of 1914

Yesterday is history, tomorrow is mystery, and today is a gift. That is why we call it the present.

If time is on your side, what is on the other side?

Only two man-made structures visible from space are The Pyramids of Giza and the Hoover Dam. The Great Wall of China is not.

In Morocco, goats climb Argan trees to consume delicious berries that are similar to the olive.

When you are in it up to your ears, keep your mouth shut.

Some people would rather die than think about death.

Things fall apart. It's scientific.

David Byrne

Today is the best of all possible days.

No one will ever win the battle of the sexes; there's too much fraternizing with the enemy.

Henry Kissinger

How much deeper would the ocean be without sponges?

A day without sunshine is like......night.

I love you not because of who you are, but because of who I am when I am with you.
