Food For Thought

I was never one to patiently pick up broken fragments and glue them together again and tell myself that the mended whole was as good as new. What is broken is broken – and I’d rather remember it as it was at its best than mend it and see the broken places as long as I lived. - Margaret Mitchell

The finest piece of mechanism in all the universe is the brain of man. The wise person develops his brain, and opens his mind to the genius and spirit of the world’s great ideas. He will feel inspired with the purest and noblest thoughts that have ever animated the spirit of humanity. - Alfred Montapert

While it takes courage to achieve greatness, it takes more courage to find fulfilment in being ordinary – for the joys that last have little relationship to achievement. The sun rises and sets in glorious colour over every square inch of the earth, in full view of every living creature. You do not have to jump higher than anyone else to see it. - Unknown
