Men are not worried by things, but by their ideas about things. When we meet difficulties, become anxious or troubled, let us not blame others, but rather ourselves, that is: our idea about things. -Epictetus, about 60 AD

"If a tree in a forest falls on a man and there is no one around to hear it, is there a problem?" "All men are created equal - so, you might as go for the one with the cash."

Winston Churchill Quotes A pessimist sees the difficulty in every opportunity; an optimist sees the opportunity in every difficulty. Attitude is a little thing that makes a big difference. Courage is what it takes to stand up and speak; courage is also what it takes to sit down and listen. I am fond of pigs. Dogs look up to us. Cats look down on us. Pigs treat us as equals. Success is going from failure to failure without a loss of enthusiam. Success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts. To improve is to change; to be perfect is to change often. When I look back on all these worries, I remember the story of the old man who said on his deathbed that he had had a lot of trouble in his life, most of which had never happened. You have enemies? Good. That means you've stood up for something, sometime in your life.

I have just begun a novel on art and creativity by Alex Miller, an Aust. writer on the human condition. He has put the following in his opening pages - 'We cannot arbitrarily invent projects for ourselves, they have to be written in our past as requirements.' Simone de Beauvoir Thinker

Bark Up Another Tree

Postby Tituba » Sun Jul 30, 2006 9:33 am

From Roseanne Barr "Reinventing yourself is all about imagination, but that doesn't mean gazing into space and wishing you were somwhere else. It's about viewing your situation in different ways - seeing where you are now as a launching pad, instead of a prison that's holding you down. Focus on what you have and not what you lack. Forget the Pollyanna crap! People think that if they just believe hard enough and long enough they'll make it. You can believe with all your heart and soul for a long time, but if you're not getting any kind of results after a long stretch of focused, intelligent, sustained effort - then you have to bark up another tree."

From Wally Amos (Famous Amos) If you don't like where you are, go someplace else; if you don't like who you work with, go work with somebody else. It doesn't matter how many say it cannot be done or how many people have tried it before; it's important to realize that whatever you're doing, it's your first attempt at it. It takes faith to plant a little seed in the ground and be certain it will grow into a big, sweet, juicy watermelon. Life doesn't kick you around. You kick yourself around. Life is just a mirror, and what you see out there, you must first see inside of you. Life is never really what it seems, it's always more. The best way to change another person is to change yourself. There are two reasons why people fail. One is irresponsibility. The second is fear. You may not be responsible for getting knocked down, but you're certainly responsible for getting back up.

From an advertisement for a Privates Residential/Golf Preserve place in Irvine, California. Custom homesites, Golf & Social memberships, etc. Picture a lovely young thing peeking her head above the waterline of an amazingly vivid aqua swimming pool... a very luxurious setting. \"Often, The Things You Do Just For Yourself Make The Whole World Shimmer And Glow.\" To me this quote supports what Barbara Sher has been saying for years...We owe it to the world to share our talent...We Must Do What We Love! If we do what we need to do for ourselves, everyone around us can enjoy the vibe. Regards, Jane in LA

\"One of the most important reasons for living is to do something - live outside of yourself and put together an idea, an idea that you want to explore and then complete... Awaken your creative sensitivities!\" - Jack Palance (1919-2006)
Jack Palance, actor, died yesterday, of natural causes. He will be missed. He did not see any of the movies he made.
