It is good to love as many things as one can, for therein lies true strength, and those who love much, do much and accomplish much, and whatever is done with love is done well.
--Vincent van Gogh

Thanks Nobby,

That one is a definite "add" to my collection.

Lots of love,

John

"Facts are mere accessories to the truth, and we do not invite to our hearth the guest who can only remind us that on such a day we suffered calamity. Still less welcome is he who would make a Roman holiday of our misfortunes. Exaggeration of what was monstrous is quickly recognised as a sign of egotism, and that contrarious symptom of the same disease which pretends that what is accepted as monstrous was really little more than normal is equally unwelcome."

Max Plowman from Subaltern on the Somme

"One night a man came to our house and told me, "there is a family with eight children. They have not eaten for days." I took some food with me and went.
When I came to that family, I saw the faces of those little children disfigured by hunger. There was no sorrow or sadness in their faces, just deep pain of hunger. I gave the rice to the mother. She divided the rice in two, and went out, carryiing half the rice. when she came back I asked her, "Where did you go?"

She gave me this simple answer, "To my neighbors; they are hungry also!" I was not surprised that she gave -- poor people are really very generous. I was surprised she knew they were hungry. As a rule, when we are suffering, we are so focused on ourselves, we have no time for others."

Mother Teresa

Nobby, that is an interesting one. Care to elaborate with a sentence or two?

Lots of love,

John

I wish I could, but Karol has died and I don't think he ever elaborated on his quote. However, if stupidity is a gift from God, then I am definitely showing him my gratitude because I have been using his gift every day.

I hear you, my intelligent friend! I laughed myself silly over that comment. I can identify!
