Think Thoughts

Some quotes to flavor the coming week:

All art is propaganda; on the other hand, not all propaganda is art.
~ George Orwell

A journeyman … will get the feel of his materials and learn what quiet miracles can be done with them. A small part of this knowledge is verbally communicable; the rest is not, except to fellow craftsmen who already posess it. The technician’s disregard of this inexplicable element … on the ground that it cannot be demonstrated under laboratory conditions – accounts for the present dismal decline in all arts. ~ Robert Graves

How we spend our days is how we spend our lives. ~Annie Dilliard

Don’t mistake activity for achievement. Business does not equal productiveness. ~Anonymous

Write down the advice of him who loves you
though you like it not at present. ~English proverb

Proverbs 9:8
Do not rebuke a mocker or he will hate you; rebuke a wise man and he will love you.

Proverbs 25:12
Like an earring of gold or an ornament of fine gold is a wise man’s rebuke to a listening ear.

# Proverbs 27:5
Better is open rebuke than hidden love.


People are often unreasonable, illogical, and self-centered;
forgive them anyway.

If you are kind, People may accuse you of selfish, ulterior motives;
Be kind anyway.

If you are successful, you will win some false friends and some true enemies;
Succeed anyway.

If you are honest and frank, people may cheat you;
Be honest and frank anyway.

What you spend years building, someone could destroy overnight;
Build anyway.

If you find serenity and happiness, there may be jealousy;
Be happy anyway.

The good you do today, people will often forget tomorrow;
Do good anyway.

Give the world the best you have, and it may never be enough;
Give the world the best you’ve got anyway.

You see, in the final analysis, it is between you and God;
It was never between you and them anyway.

~ Mother Theresa
