A response I received to one of my posts recently made me think of this quote.

Better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak and to remove all doubt.
— ABRAHAM LINCOLN.

Love doesn't just sit there, like a stone, it has to be made, like bread; remade all the time, made new.

Coffee does not judge me. It embraces me and warms me and fills me with caffeinated love.

Instructions for Life by The Dalai Lama

  • Take into account that great love and great achievements involve great risk.
  • When you lose, don’t lose the lesson.
  • Follow the three R’s:
- Respect for self,
- Respect for others and
- Responsibility for all your actions.
  • Remember that not getting what you want is sometimes a wonderful stroke of luck.
  • Learn the rules so you know how to break them properly.
  • Don’t let a little dispute injure a great relationship.
  • When you realize you’ve made a mistake, take immediate steps to correct it.
  • Spend some time alone every day.
  • Open your arms to change, but don’t let go of your values.
