Food For Thought

Do not believe on the strength of traditions even if they have been held in honour for many generations and in many places; do not believe anything because many people speak of it; do not believe on the strength of sagas of old times; do no believe that which you have yourself imagined, thinking a god has inspired you. After investigation, believe that which you yourself have tested and found reasonable, and which is for your good and that of others. - Unknown 

I am thankful for small mercies. I compared notes with one of my friends who expect everything of the universe, and is disappointed when anything is less than the best, and I found that I begin at the other extreme, expecting nothing, and am always full of thanks for moderate good. If we will take the good we find, we shall have heaping measures. - Ralph Waldo Emerson

I suppose while we are mourning the loss of our friend, others are rejoicing to meet him behind the veil; and while he has left us, others are coming into the world at the same time, and probably in this our territory. There is a continuous change, an ingress of beings into the world and an egress out of it. - John Taylor
