Don’t most of us think of trees as being majestical and wise or is it only me?

You can find this tree just outside Palewell Common

Thoughtful Thursday ~ Quotes ~ Nature!

Leave a comment

Please find a thoughtful quote for a the day of the week leading us hopefully to a relaxing weekend!

That being ‘Thoughtful Thursday’.

 

“A human being is a part of the whole called by us universe, a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feeling as something separated from the rest, a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty.”  ― Albert Einstein

Quote for today ~ Community!

Leave a comment

What about quotes?

I find quotes so useful as snippets of information, words of wisdom from those passed on to a different plain or those still with us.  They can give clarity to a moment, be used as a mantra or just be something to ponder.

Today I would like to give a quote on ‘Community’

You will find also a post I did on the subject of ‘Community here.

“What should young people do with their lives today? Many things, obviously. But the most daring thing is to create stable communities in which the terrible disease of loneliness can be cured.”
― Kurt Vonnegut
