Food for Thought

People are known by the company they keep, and it is always wise to select the best, for if the lower is chosen, it is impossible to rise; but if the best is not agreeable, it is easy to come down. Of course we must live worthy of the best associates, otherwise we will be forced down, and our humiliation will be greater than if we had never aspired to associate with the best people. - Nicias Ballard Cooksey

The greatest disease in the West today is not TB or leprosy; it is being unwanted, unloved, and uncared for. We can cure physical diseases with medicine, but the only cure for loneliness, despair, and hopelessness is love. There are many in the world who are dying for a piece of bread but there are many more dying for a little love. The poverty in the West is a different kind of poverty — it is not only a poverty of loneliness but also of spirituality. - Mother Teresa

Not everything is long lasting. Sometimes people come into your life to show you what is right and what is wrong, to show you who you can be, to teach you to love yourself, to make you feel better for a little while, or to just be someone to walk with at night and spill your life to. Not everyone is going to stay forever, and we still have to keep on going and thank them for what they’ve given us. - Emory Allen
