Food For Thought

Just as treasures are uncovered from the earth, so virtue appears from good deeds, and wisdom appears from a pure and peaceful mind. To walk safely through the maze of human life, one needs the light of wisdom and the guidance of virtue. - The Buddha

If a civil word or two will render a man happy, he must be a wretch, indeed who will not give them to him. Such a disposition is like lighting another mans candle by ones own, which loses none of its brilliancy by what the other gains. - William Penn

Just as we may learn from our successes (how to do it) so also can we learn from our mistakes (how not to do it). It just isnt in the cards that anybody should get by forever without making mistakes and perhaps sometimes making costly ones. - Norman Vincent Peale
