Another year coming to a close. Stay inspired. Here are my picks from December; the little things that made me smile. 🙂
1] Ellen White chosen as one of Smithsonian’s 100 Most Significant Americans. She has certainly had an ENORMOUS impact on my life, and it’s nice to see such an inspired woman recognized.
2] “Pain is temporary, glory lasts forever.” Len (Dancing With The Stars)
4] Dance on FLEEK: Alfonso and Witney
6] Quote of the semester:
“If birth and family circumstances dictate character, education in ethics can make little or no difference.” pg. 22 Professional Responsibility: A Contemporary Approach (Pearce, Capra, Green, Knake and Terry)
“There’s a world of difference between truth and facts. Facts can obscure the truth.” – Maya Angelou
8] Is anyone else excited about this film? Jane Wilde (Hawking) is an extraordinary woman (a fighter), and I think their love story is amazing.
9] Because Sinatra is NYC in the winter. His voice is heard even when no music plays through the twinkling lights of the city, casting their glow on our hopes, joys, fears and romance.
“The world is full of nice people. If you can’t find one, be one.”
One should learn how to live life from you, I spend my entire life inside a box.- Arjun
15] The bearded T.B. LaBerge writing from his soul. I love his Tumblr.
“I shall spend every moment loving… One who loves, does not notice her trials; or perhaps more accurately, she is able to love them.”
St. Bernadette of Lourdes
“Don’t be afraid. There are exquisite things in store for you. This is merely the beginning.”
Oscar Wilde, The Picture of Dorian Gray
“I want to infect you with the tremendous excitement of living, because I believe that you have the strength to bear it.”
Tennessee Williams, from The Selected Letters: 1920-1945
“I’m always inclined to believe that the best way of knowing [the divine] is to love a great deal. Love that friend, that person, that thing, whatever you like, you’ll be on the right path to knowing more thoroughly, afterwards; that’s what I say to myself. But you must love with a high, serious intimate sympathy, with a will, with intelligence, and you must always seek to know more thoroughly, better, and more.”
Vincent van Gogh
