Food For Thought


Meaning does not exist in the future and neither do I. Nothing will have meaning 'ultimately.' Nothing will even mean tomorrow what it did today. Meaning changes with the context. My meaningfulness is here. It is enough that I am of value to someone today. It is enough that I make a difference now. - Hugh Prather

To be true, I must fully accept that at this moment, I can only be what I am . . . no more, no less; however, with the inevitable passing of each moment of time, I will gradually, but surely change . . . to become more or less, better or worse, stronger or weaker. My choice is the direction of change: it is mine alone. The only true competition is this rivalry with my changing self. It is the very basis of the grand eternal plan. - C. Smith Sumner

You are as much a real person as you are deep. As with the depths of a diamond, the interior is twice as important as the surface. There are people who are all fa├žade, like a house left unfinished when the funds run out. They have the entrance of a palace but the inner rooms of a cottage. - Balthasar Gracian
