Thought for the day...

Common sense yields common results.  Extraordinary results will require some uncommon thinking.

All Things Possible,

    The truth is a fragile and flimsy thing, but a lie well told is immortal - Mark Twain

    Just kidding, this thought doesn't actually inspire me but I've always liked it. A thought that does really inspire me is that imagination is our greatest gift. It allows us to see the reality we would like so that we can work towards it. Leading me to the other thought when I'm really busy: miracles I can do right away, the impossible takes a little longer. Or when I'm working out I keep thinking like Arnold would "no pain, no pain!" Wait, that's not right...

    And of course the favorite inspiring thought in these parts "all things possible!"

    A bookmark I have from Joan Chittister:

    "Find the thing that stirs your heart and make room for it."

    That's why I love the forum and the folks who frequent here. Perhaps that's why it works. Uncommon friendships bring out the beautiful and the possible within us, helping us to find the thing of ATP that stirs our hearts. And the support here, helps us along. It's a place where imagination, as Dave says, is a gift, and a place to share its reflection.

    Happy Valentine's Day everyone! Thanks, Chris for this thought for the day! Sue

    Unfortunately common sense is not very common. Thank goodness there are people on this forum and its host that inspire me.

    Hope everyone had a wonderful Valentine's. Thank you Sue for the card.

    Gosh, I am a real quote geek--hard to pick just one! Or even just one-hundred! But let's go with a favorite Mark Twain, since Dave brought him up--paraphrased a bit here--"You can take any stray dog off the street and make him prosperous and he will not bite you. This is the principal difference between men and dogs." L. B.

    Yes, Susan, all 12 dogs and also don't fergit my 4 ferrets--are fine as frog hair! I'm always checking in here, even if I don't comment on each topic--but while I'm here now--another great interview Chris! I suppose that will(should) be added to the collection on this site....and heck, why not add some more favorite quotes of mine? Brace yerself, here goes! A favorite political quote--someone once was berating President Lincoln for being too nice to his enemies, and said he should instead wish to destroy them, to which Lincoln replied, "When I make friends of my enemies, I do destoy them."....From Albert Einstein--"There are two ways to view life; one is that there are no miracles. The other is that EVERYTHING is a miracle."...From Daniel Boone, who, when interviewed as an old man by a newspaperman, was asked if, in all his years wandering the wilderness, was he ever lost, to which ol' Dan'l replied, "LOST! I can't say as ever I was lost! I was bewildered once for 3 days, but I've never been lost!".....L.B....Definetely to be continued!.....

    ....and some Native American quotes/sayings--from Luther Standing Bear(Lakota); "Man's heart, away from Nature, grows hard."; And a favorite Apache proverb I like, from a people who really knew what it was to live on a knife's edge; "A foolish man looks far in search of joy and death; both are very close...."; a Lakota womens' saying-"Gossip is spoken behind the palm, but has a way of leaking through the fingers!" A favorite French proverb: "One often finds one's destiny on the road one takes to avoid it" be cont?....L.B.
