A few more that I like.

- Eleanor Roosevelt

"Resentment is like you taking poison and waiting for the other person to die."
- unknown

"Happiness and freedom begin with a clear understanding of one principle: some things are within our control and some things are not. It is only after you have faced up to this fundamental rule and learned to distinguish between what you can and cannot control that inner tranquility and outer effectiveness become possible... ...Remember too, that if you think you have free rein over things that are naturally beyond your control, or if you attempt to adopt the affairs of others as your own, your pursuits will be thwarted and you will become a frustrated, anxious and fault-finding person."
- Epicetus, Stoic Philosopher

A mistake in judgement isn't fatal, but too much anxiety about judgement is.
- Pauline Kael

"Self-acceptance is my refusal to be in an adversarial relationship to myself."
- Nathaniel Brand

"You don't have to control your thoughts; you just have to stop letting them control you."
- Dan Millman

-George Eliott

"Many of us spend our whole lives running from feeling with the mistaken belief that you cannot bear the pain. But you have already borne the pain. What you have not done is feel all you are beyond that pain."
- Kahlil Gibran

"Take the first step, no more, no less, and the next will be revealed."

Just left my shrinks' office...

"IF you spend your energy trying to convince people that you are perfect and never admit the imperfect aspects of your life, you eventually will find yourself surrounded by people who have also convinced themselves that everything in their world is just "perfect".

Have a safe "Presidents Day".

A few I like. Don't blame me that most of them come from sci-fi/comic/geek sources. There's a lot of wisdom there! \:D

The journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.

Try not. Do, or do not. There is no try.

I haven't failed, I just found 10,000 ways that won't work.

Strive to not hurt with the closed fist, but heal with the open hand.

You keep your religion, I'll keep mine.

Sanity is overrated.

Why be normul? \:D

I bear witness that there is no God but God. Verily from God we come, and to Him we return.

I am a Hindu, as I am a Christian, as I am a Jew, as I am a Muslim.

Love one another as I have loved you. Forgive one another as I have forgiven you.

I shall dwell in the house of the Lord forever.

With great power comes great responsability.

Be as kind to others as you are to yourself.

Be as kind to yourself as you are to others.

We cannot be enemies. We must be friends.

All (hu)men are created equal.

Always follow the Prime Directive.

Peace be with you. My peace be unto you.

Peace and love, brothers and sisters.


Scot

Yea, I'm a fan of short quotes too, but generally they are nonsensical rather than profound, i.e.

"Keep New York clean...eat a pidgeon." or

"if you can keep your head when everyone around you is loosing thiers, then you obviously don't understand the situation."

TODAY, TOMORROW, YESTERDAY
There are two days in every week
that we should not worry about,
Two days that should be kept free,
from fear and apprehension.
One is Yesterday
with its mistakes and cares,
its faults and blunders,
its aches and pains.
Yesterday has passed forever
beyond our control.
All the money in the world
cannot bring back yesterday.
We cannot undo a certain act
or take back a word we've said-
Yesterday is gone.
The other day we shouldn't
worry about is Tomorrow-
with its impossible adversaries,
its burdens, its hopeful promise,
and poor performance.
Tomorrow's sun
with either rise in splendor
or behind a mask of clouds,
but it will rise
and until it does,
we have no stake in tomorrow,
for it is yet unknown.
This leaves only one day-
Today.
Any person can fight the battle
for just one day.
It is only when we add
the burdens of yesterday
and tomorrow that we break down.
The sadness comes not from
the experience of today
but the remorse of bitterness
for something which happened yesterday
and the dread of what
tomorrow may bring.

Subject: Choose how to start your day


READ THIS, LET IT SINK IN, THEN CHOOSE HOW YOU START

YOUR DAY TOMORROW.


Michael is the kind of guy you love to hate.
He is always in a good mood and always
has something positive to say.


When someone would ask him how he was doing,
he would reply, "If I were any better, I would be
twins!"


He was a natural motivator.


If an employee was having a bad day,
Michael was there telling the employee how to look
on the positive side of the situation.


Seeing this style really made me curious,
so one day I went up to Michael and asked him,
"I don't get it! You can't be a positive person
all of the time.

How do you do it?"

Michael replied, "Each morning I wake up and say
to myself, you have two choices today.

You can choose to be in a good mood or
you can choose to be in a bad mood.
I choose to be in a good mood.


Each time something bad happens,
I can choose to be a victim or...I can choose to
learn from it.
I choose to learn from it.


Every time someone comes to me complaining,
I can choose to accept their complaining or...
I can point out the positive side of life.
I choose the positive side of life.


"Yeah, right, it's not that easy," I protested.

"Yes, it is," Michael said. "Life is all about
choices.
When you cut away all the junk, every situation
is a choice.


You choose how you react to situations.
You choose how people affect your mood.
You choose to be in a good mood or bad mood.
The bottom line:

It's your choice how you live your life."


I reflected on what Michael said.
Soon hereafter, I left the Tower Industry to
start my own business.
We lost touch, but I often thought about him
when I made a choice about life instead of
reacting to it.


Several years later,
I heard that Michael was involved in a serious
accident,
falling some 60 feet from a communications tower.


After 18 hours of surgery and weeks of intensive
care,
Michael was released from the hospital with rods
placed in his back.

I saw Michael about six months after the
accident.
When I asked him how he was, he replied,
"If I were any better, I'd be twins. Wanna see
my scars?"


I declined to see his wounds,
but I did ask him what had gone through his mind
as the accident took place.
"The first thing that went through my mind was
the well-being of my soon to be born daughter, "
Michael replied.

"Then, as I lay on the ground,
I remembered that I had two choices:
I could choose to live or ...I could choose to
die.

I chose to live."

"Weren't you scared? Did you lose consciousness?"

I asked.

Michael continued, "...the paramedics were great.


They kept telling me I was going to be fine.
But when they wheeled me into the ER and I saw
the expressions
on the faces of the doctors and nurses, I got
really scared.
In their eyes, I read "he's a dead man. I knew I
needed to take action."


"What did you do?" I asked.
"Well, there was a big burly nurse shouting
questions at me,"
said Michael. "She asked if I was allergic to
anything.
"Yes, I replied."
The doctors and nurses stopped working as they
waited for my reply. I took a deep breath and
yelled,
"Gravity."


Over their laughter, I told them, "I am choosing
to live. Operate on me as if I am alive, not
dead."


Michael lived, thanks to the skill of his
doctors,
but also because of his amazing attitude.
I learned from him that every day we have the
choice to live fully.


Attitude, after all, is everything.


"Therefore do not worry about tomorrow,
for tomorrow will worry about itself.
Each day has enough trouble of its own."
Matthew 6:34


After all today is the tomorrow you worried about
yesterday.


You have two choices now:

1. Delete this.

2. Forward it to the people you care about.


You know the choice I made.

.

Quotes about
Frank Fitzpatrick and his presentations

July 2, 1992, on PrimeTime Live.
Diane Sawyer on Frank Fitzpatrick

“In the story you’re about to see, the reawakened memory of one man forced a community, a church, and now a nation to face what happened back in the days when everyone wanted to look away.”

From later in the same broadcast

“Now these children are grown up and tracking him down - led by a man who says he’s going to see justice done.”

Comments from audience of Frank’s presentations at conferences

“Litany of names very moving and effective. Admiration, respect, and gratitude for your courage and persistence and continued witness - heroic & extraordinary virtue.”

“A job well done! Your presentation was outstanding. Your organization, of which my husband is a member, is to be commended.”

“A strong and courageous man. His testimony has helped many people.”

“Frank’s courage is truly inspiring. I was completely moved.”

“I found it encouraging and helpful. It has motivated me to speak out.”

“Frank & Sara: Thank you for what you’ve both done. Courage, kindness, and gentleness. Those words come to mind about you both. My life is changed. Love, Ann”

“Very good presentation. Very courageous and exciting. I liked the song/music especially. Very, very great.”

“Enjoyed his sense of humor, which has also helped me to survive my own sexual abuse.”

“What a gift you have given to so many survivors, a place and a home for support and courage.”

“Excellent presentation. Fun music pieces. Very sad and painful at times, but humor is a good method to help heal yourself.”
