Anyone that reads this blog, may have noticed that I am a quote junkie and I also have an interest in music.
I appreciate anyone having a look, as I love to share both these topics.
Thank you for your interest....

"I HAVE A DREAM..."

"I have a dream that my four little children will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character."
                                                      -----MARTIN LUTHER KING, Jr.-----


http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XwI4zsNteU8&ob=av2e


I have just viewed the movie, THE HELP.  It is certainly a must see. 
It  reminds us of the racial discrimination of the sixties, and how some things have moved forward.




"Never look down on anybody unless you're helping them up."
                             -----Reverend Jesse Jackson-----

ALWAYS LEARNING....

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OWIVi_Oa4as

"ALWAYS WALK THROUGH LIFE AS IF YOU HAVE SOMETHING NEW TO LEARN AND YOU WILL."
                                                           -----Vernon Howard-----


If we lose the ability to learn, we may as well, forget life, as we know it.  It is easy to "talk the talk" but a different matter entirely, to "walk the walk".
I am afraid that I am getting a bit tired of people, that can not do as they say.  I want to just cover my ears so I can not hear the "blah blah blah"  Come on out and say what you mean, maybe I do not want to hear it, but at least it is honest.

WOMEN ARE FROM BLOOMINGDALES AND MEN ARE FROM SEARS

DOES THAT TITLE SOUND FAMILIAR?  It is a play on words from the book,  "Men Are From Mars, Women Are From Venus"  by John Gray, PHD.

Just think about it.  Bloomingdales represents high fashion,  forward thinking, and independent  women, while Sears, is the practical, get what you need and get out, style, of most men.  Shopping is one of the things that usually puts men and women in two different corners.  I say usually, but I have met a few exceptions!

 If we were all the same, life would be boring...
There have been many comments made, about the differences between men and women.  Some are just comical, some are seriously true.  There are a lot of myths about the differences between the sexes.  It is up to each individual, to decide, for himself, or herself, which is fact or fiction....

This is a cute short about some of the differences:

LETTING GO...AND MOVING ON...

"We can never turn back the pages of time, though we may wish to relive a happy moment, or say goodbye just one last time, we never can, because the sands of time continue to fall, and we can't turn the hourglass over."
                                                               -----UNKNOWN-----
        
We all wonder what the future holds.  Is it predestined, or does it just happen....
If we don't go on, and turn the next page.....we will never know....
We will just have to consult, our inner "Crystal Ball."


I am always surprised, how many others have pondered this subject...it seems to be, one of lifes little mysteries.

VALENTINES DAY, FEBRUARY 14TH

"VALENTINES DAY  was named after  Saint Valentine, a Christian Martyr,  by Pope Gelasius in 496 AD.
VALENTINES DAY became associated with Romantic Love in the times of Geoffrey Chaucer in the Middle Ages."


Why should it not be VALENTINES DAY, every day of the year?
Why should we not celebrate LOVE and RELATIONSHIPS every day, not for just one day,
 of the year!   When it comes to LOVE, what are our priorities?

CAN SHARE,  EVERY DAY OF THE YEAR!

CHANGE THE WORLD

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sQPH2k4JqhY&feature=fvsr

"Here's to the crazy ones.  The Misfits.  The Rebels.  The Troublemakers.  The round pegs in the square holes.  The ones who see things differently.  They're not fond of Rules.  And they have no respect for the status quo.  You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them.  About the only thing you can't do is ignore them.  Because they change things.  They push the Human Race forward.  and while some may see them as the Crazy Ones, we see Genius.  Because the People who are crazy  enough to think they can change the World, are the ones who do."

IT'S THE SIMPLE THINGS....

                                    -----MAYA ANGELOU-----




http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iYjcNR7W-Ow

When we look back on our lives....what do we remember?  We recall the big events, but we treasure the
special memories of the little things, that happen every day!  We remember the rain on the roof, or the way the
wind blew our hair, the warm sun on our face, and looking at someone that we love.  These are the simple
things.....The things that most of us take for grated....

THE GOOD THINGS IN LIFE

"ALL OF US ARE BORN FOR A REASON, BUT ALL OF US DON'T DISCOVER WHY.  SUCCESS IN LIFE HAS NOTHING TO WITH WHAT YOU GAIN IN LIFE OR ACCOMPLISH FOR YOURSELF.  IT'S WHAT YOU DO FOR OTHERS."


                                                             -----DANNY THOMAS-----


http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zP0vM41PVf0&feature=related

Doing for others enhances what you gain for yourself.  By doing for others you gain the ability to achieve things for yourself.  Look past your own needs, see what you can to better the lives of others.  You will find that in the end, you will prosper.

Have you ever wonderered about Sanity?  Or, contemplated Insanity?


What is sanity?  Is the world we live in, sane?  Do we really believe that what we see, is reality?
These are just some of the things that I have been asking myself, recently.

SORRY,  IT HAS JUST BEEN ONE OF THOSE DAYS......

LOOK TOWARDS THE SOURCE

"Learn the art of  PATIENCE apply discipline to your thoughts when they become anxious over the outcome of goals.
IMPATIENCE breeds anxiety, fear, discouragement and failure.
PATIENCE creates confidence, decisiveness, and rational outlook, which eventually leads to success."


                                       -----BRIAN ADAMS-----


We can say much about Patience.  We know that we should have it.  We are told that Patience is a virtue....Like most things Patience is easier said than done.  Let's just say, it is something we should all be working on....A work in progress.......
