A new school year has begun. Our daughters each entered a new school this year. Our oldest is in high school, while our youngest in Junoir high.
“My, How time goes by.”
Some of the conversations we have now with our daughters are really wonderful and interesting.
Our youngest daughter, the other night, asked us about quotes.
Quotes are inspirational, funny, wise, etc. things that people have said. Most of the time sayings are put into the same category.
Here are a couple of my favorite quotes.
“If a man does not keep pace with his companions, perhaps it is because he hears a different drummer. Let him step to the music he hears, however measured or far away.”
Henry David Thoreau
“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, ‘Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?’ Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It’s not just in some of us; it’s in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”
Marianne Williamson, A Return to Love: Reflections on the Principles of “A Course in Miracles”
The Fall Equinox was just the other day. Here’s one for Autunm.
“Delicious autumn! My very soul is wedded to it, and if I were a bird I would fly about the earth seeking the successive autumns.”
GEORGE ELIOT, pen name of Mary Ann Evans (1819-1880), author ofSilas Marne

Darla Dixon organized a group of artists who will create no-charge compassionate portraits for the families who have lost a loved one in Operation Iraqi Freedom/Operation Enduring Freedom. We are looking for artists to join our efforts, and also for non-artists who will help spread the word about this free service and token of our gratitude to families who have sacrificed so much.”
