Death - Quotes


For Google+ readers, please click on the link to see the post

It is the fear of death – 24/7 in every shade of hospital white and doomsday black – that sells the pharmaceutical, political, financial, film, and food product promising to make good the wish to live forever. - Lewis H. Lapham

Death is the fate no one can escape. The question, then, is, How does one die? A person can die like a hero or like a coward. The difference is that the hero can face death without fear, whereas the coward can't. - Alexander Lowen

You can't learn to die as though it were a skill. People die in the way they have lived. Death becomes the expression of everything you are, and you can bring to it only what you have brought to your life. - Michael Roemer

Death must be so beautiful. To lie in the soft brown earth, with the grasses waving above one's head, and listen to silence. To have no yesterday, and no tomorrow. To forget time, to forgive life, to be at peace. - Oscar Wilde

Parables

I love Parables. They are simple stories, easy to understand, but the lessons, (usually there is more than one lesson) in them are profound.

A little girl was holding two apples. Her mother asked for one. The girl quickly bit one apple, and, then, the other. Her mother held back her disappointment. Then the girl handed one to her saying. “Here, this is the sweeter one.”

Moral of the story: Don’t be too quick to judge

Life - Quotes


For Google+ readers, please click on the link to see the post

Can we remember when, in those more tender years – before our sense of wonder was either crushed, or brushed away by a world rushing by – how alive we were with a bare longing to know life by itself? How life's mysteries held no fear for us, but rather filled us with expectations ... so much so that some nights it was hard to fall asleep; or we'd spend the night actively dreaming of all the possibilities life seemed to offer? Can we look back on ourselves when we were like this and recall when our hearts and minds were still wide open; how intrigued we were by the world unfolding around us, even as we were awakening to an exploding universe of feelings welling up within us? - Guy Finley

First I was dying to finish high school and start college. And then I was dying to finish college and start working. And then I was dying to marry and have children/ and then I was dying for my children to grow old enough for school so I could return to work. And then I was dying to retire. And I am dying … and suddenly I realize I forgot to live. - Unknown

Have regular hours for work and play; make each day both useful and pleasant, and prove that you understand the worth of time by employing it well. Then youth will be delightful, old age will bring few regrets, and life become a beautiful success, in spite of poverty. - Louisa May Alcott

Your intention sets the universe in motion. The universe flows in the direction of your intention, and so it is important to be clear on your exact intention in any situation. If you are absolutely clear as to your intent, your subconscious success mechanism will support you in getting there. Most people encounter problems in creating the kind of life they want because they have not clearly determined where they want to go, or visualized what it is going to look like when they get there. Those who lead purposeful, successful lives do so because they have set up in their mind a clear picture of what they want to create in their lives. - Robert Anthony

Happiness - Quotes


For Google+ readers, please click here to see the post

As human beings we all want to be happy and free from misery. We have learned that the key to happiness is inner peace. The greatest obstacles to inner peace are disturbing emotions such as anger and attachment, fear and suspicion, while love and compassion, a sense of universal responsibility are the sources of peace and happiness. - Dalai Lama

Even if you’re unhappy, just pretend that you’re happy. Eventually, your smile will be contagious to yourself. I had to learn that. I used to think, ‘I’m being fake,’ but you know what? Better to be fake and happy than real and miserable. - Evangeline Lilly

Happiness, true happiness, is an inner quality. It is a state of mind. If your mind is at peace, you are happy. If your mind is at peace, but you have nothing else, you can be happy. If you have everything the world can give – pleasure, possessions, power – but lack peace of mind, you can never be happy. - Dada Vaswani

If someone decides they’re not going to be happy, it’s not your problem. You don’t have to spend your time and energy trying to cheer up someone who has already decided to stay in a bad mood. Believe it or not, you can actually hurt people by playing into their self-pity. - Joyce Meyer

You can choose to be happy or sad and whichever you choose that is what you get. No one is really responsible to make someone else happy, no matter what most people have been taught and accept as true. - Sidney Madwed

There are more and more claims of ‘super’ or ‘wonder’ foods or fruits killing off Cancer cells. I wonder how much of these are true. If they were true, surely there would be more research and news about it, right? But all’s quiet from the Medical and Health Authorities.

There is a theory that big pharmaceutical companies do not like these reports. They would lose out big time if people resort to these ‘wonder’ remedies to cure their Cancer. Hence, the rumour that the pharmaceutical companies are keeping quiet, because there is money in medicine but not in the cure.

So what is true, and who is right? A bit difficult to know really. Our best bet is to eat in moderation, and put in some exercise daily. Keep healthy, keep well. And hopefully that will keep away all illnesses.

If you've ever found yourself in a foreign country trying to explain the British expression 'a few sandwiches short of a picnic', this list is for you, says Hazel Davis

1. Sweet Fanny Adams
Sadly, the meaning of this is very easy to pinpoint and refers to eight-year-old Fanny Adams, who was killed and dismembered in Alton in 1867. The Royal Navy reportedly came to refer to their paltry meat rations as 'Fanny Adams'. It later came to stand for nothing at all, the initials conveniently standing for another more expression, resulting in Sweet FA.

2. Kicking the bucket
First mentioned in print in 1775, it has been suggested that the bucket refers to the Old French buquet for a balance, or a trebuchet, the medieval siege weapon for hurling missiles at the enemy.

3. A bit of how’s your father
This expression is first credited to music-hall comedian Harry Tate, who, when asked an awkward question, would reply with 'How's your father? This was then used by First World War servicemen as a stand-in for all manner of implications, including the racy one it is now most often associated with.

4. Bob’s your uncle
Meaning 'Simple as that', this expression is thought to date from the Victorian prime minister, Lord Salisbury, when he appointed his nephew Arthur Balfour as chief secretary for Ireland, a post most people considered him unfit for. However, from the 1900s, 'Bob' was a generic name for an unknown man.

5. To be a crosspatch
This expression originally refers to a fool or clown and supposedly dates from the 17th century. Apparently, the original 'patch' was a clown called Sexten, employed by Cardinal Wolsey.

6. The apple of my eye
This phrase, which appears in the King James Bible and also in Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream, refers to a time when the pupil of the eye was thought to be a solid object.

7. To be a flash in the pan
This expression is thought to have come from when flintlock muskets used to have small pans to hold gunpowder. if the gunpowder flared up without a bullet being fired, it was a 'flash in the pan'.

8. To get someone’s goat
In the 19th century nervous horses would supposedly be calmed down by placing a goat in the stall with them. Rival horse owners would steal (or 'get') the goat to upset the horse and win the race.

9. A red herring
This is thought to come from the practice of using the scent of red herring in training hounds because the smell is good for disguising other odours.

10. To have a knees-up
You don't get more British than a knees-up and this expression first appeared in the music-hall song Knees Up, Mother Brown.

11. Dressed to the nines
This was first recorded by the poet Robert Burns but others have suggested it was originally 'dressed to the eyes'. which in medieval English would have been 'to then eyne'.

12. To beat around the bush
In medieval times game birds were scared out of their hiding places under bushes and then killed. Hitting the bush directly could prove dangerous, hence the analogy.

13. To wet your whistle
This first appears in Chaucer's Canterbury Tales. The word 'whistle' refers to a mouth.

14. Not enough room to swing a cat
The true origin of this saying is unclear, with many supposing it is to do with swinging a cat o' nine tails in a small ship's cabin, though this has been disputed. 

15. Cold enough to freeze the balls off a brass monkey 
This phrase was first recorded in America in the mid-1880s. Some believe it originated from the Napoleonic wars and derived from the brass plate (called a monkey) that cannonballs were stacked on. When it was cold, the brass would contract and the balls would fall off. Others think this is unlikely and merely refers to the extremities on actual brass monkeys.

A good book changes for you every few years because you are in a different place in your own life. That's a sign of a good novel. Not only will two different readers get something different but so will a single reader at different points in his life. - Alan Lightman

Books are not absolutely dead things, but do contain a potency of life in them to be as active as that soul was whose progeny they are; nay they do preserve as in a vial the purest efficacy and extraction of that living intellect that bred them. - John Milton

Book reading is a solitary and sedentary pursuit, and those who do are cautioned that a book should be used as an integral part of a well-rounded life ... A book should not be used as a substitute or an excuse. - Garrison Keillor

Books that have become classics – books that have had their day and now get more praise than perusal – always remind me of retired colonels and majors and captains who, having reached the age limit, find themselves retired on half pay. - Thomas Bailey Aldrich

I never feel lonely if I’ve got a book – they’re like old friends. Even if you’re not reading them over and over again, you know they are there. And they’re part of your history. They sort of tell a story about your journey through life. - Emilia Fox

What really knocks me out is a book that, when you’re all done reading it, you wish the author that wrote it was a terrific friend of yours and you could call him up on the phone whenever you felt like it. That doesn’t happen much, though. - J. D. Salinger

I used to think I preferred getting old to the alternative, but now I'm not sure. Sometimes the monotony of bingo and sing-alongs and ancient dusty people parked in the hallway in wheelchairs makes me long for death. Particularly when I remember that I'm one of the ancient dusty people, filed away like some worthless tchotchke. - Sara Gruen

The complete life, the perfect pattern, includes old age as well as youth and maturity. The beauty of the morning and the radiance of noon are good, but it would be a very silly person who drew the curtains and turned on the light in order to shut out the tranquillity of the evening. Old age has its pleasures, which, though different, are not less than the pleasures of youth. - W. Somerset Maugham

It must be confessed that life after forty is an anti-climax, gradual indeed, and progressive with some, but steep and rapid with others. It would be well if old age diminished our perceptibilities to pain, in the same proportion that it does our sensibilities to pleasure; and if life has been termed a feast, those favoured few are the most fortunate guests, who are not compelled to sit at the table, when they can no longer partake of the banquet. - Charles Caleb Colton

The great renunciation of old age as it prepared for death, wraps itself up in its chrysalis, which may be observed at the end of lives that are at all prolonged, even in old lovers who have lived for one another, in old friends bound by the closest ties of mutual sympathy, who, after a certain year, cease to make the necessary journey or even to cross the street to see one another, cease to correspond, and know that they will communicate no more in this world. - Marcel Proust
