How about those after my name.

I think that they both apply to us.

When someone is seeking, it happens quite easily that he only sees the thing that he is seeking; that he is unable to find anything, unable to absorb anything, because he is only thinking of the thing he is seeking, because he has a goal, because he is obsessed with his goal. Seeking means: to have a goal; but finding means: to be free, to be receptive, to have no goal. You, O worthy one, are perhaps indeed a seeker, for in striving towards your goal, you do not see many things that are under your nose. - "Siddhartha" by Herman Hesse

Love anything and your heart will be wrung and possibly broken. If you want to make sure of keeping it intact you must give it to no one, not even an animal. Wrap it carefully round with hobbies and little luxuries; avoid all entanglements. Lock it up save in the casket or coffin of your selfishness. But in that casket - safe, dark, motionless, airless - it will change. It will not be broken; it will become unbreakable, impenetrable, irredeemable. To love is to be vulnerable. - CS Lewis

A few more:

Grief shared is grief halved. Joy shared is joy doubled.

Don't try to be a great man, just be a man and let history make it's own decision.

Measure twice, cut once.

Keep honking. I'm reloading. (Oh, like YOU'D think differently after driving in Massachusetts! \:D )

Jesus may love you, but the rest of us think you're an (deleted)!

Love God. Love your neighbor. Love yourself.

Forgive, but for yourself. Not for those who wronged you.

A resentment weighs you down like a lodestone. Give up hatred, because it takes up more of your energy.

(For my perps, thanks to Norman Schwartzkopf. Answering a reporter on the nature of Christian forgiveness on the battlefield) I believe it's God's function to forgive. We're just trying to arrange the meeting.

Okay, so some of mine aren't exactly loving, but you gotta admit, they can be appropriate!

Peace and love,

Scot \:D

Here's one I should have remembered before.

Know yourself.

Thanks,

Joe

Intuitively I've always been aware of the vitally important pact that a man has with himself, to be all things to himself, and to be identified with all things, to stand self-reliant, taking advantage of his haphazard connection with the planet, riding his luck, and following his bent with the tenacity of a hound.

Know yourself. If you need help, call the F.B.I.

I am convinced God has a sense of humor. Look at the platypus and Darwin existing on the same planet.

'Nuff said!

Excelsior!

Victory comes through strength. But what KIND of strength?

Nothing worth having comes without cost.

Freedom isn't something given to you. Freedom is what you have. What you do with it, well, that's up to you.

Peace and love,

Scot
