Autumn at the Lake
A mature person is one who does not think only in absolutes, who is able to
be objective even when stirred emotionally, who has learned that there is
both good and bad in all people and who walks humbly and deals charitably
He who imagines he can do without the world deceives himself
much, but he who fancies that the world cannot do without him
is even more mistaken.  
-- Duc de La Rochefoucauld
with the circumstances of life, knowing that in this world no one is
all-knowing and, therefore, all of us need both love and charity.
-- Eleanor Roosevelt
The ocean, mountains and mighty continents are not heavy burdens
to bear when compared to the burden of not being kind.  
-- Buddha

Some come from ahead and some from behind.  
-- Dr. Seuss
Surely, in the light of history, it is more intelligent to hope rather
than to fear, to try rather than not to try.  
-- Eleanor Roosevelt

happy they are who already possess it.  
-- Duc de La Rochefoucauld
It is not certain that everything is certain.  -- Blaise Pascal
All our dignity lies in thought.  It is by thought that we must
elevate ourselves, not by space and time, which we cannot
fill.  Let us endeavor then to think well.  -
- Blaise Pascal
So many gods, so many creeds, so many paths that wind and wind,
While just the art of being kind is all the sad world really needs.
-- Ella Wheeler Wilcox
Once accomplished, nothing can erase a good deed.  -- Buddha
