    John Steinbeck

    Rabindranath Tagore
    “Children are living beings - more living than grown-up people who have built shells of habit around themselves. Therefore it is absolutely necessary for their mental health and development that they should not have mere schools for their lessons, but a world whose guiding spirit is personal love.”
    Rabindranath Tagore

    for the caged bird sings of freedom.”
    Maya Angelou, I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings

    Fred Rogers
    “When I say it's you I like, I'm talking about that part of you that knows that life is far more than anything you can ever see or hear or touch. That deep part of you that allows you to stand for those things without which humankind cannot survive. Love that conquers hate, peace that rises triumphant over war, and justice that proves more powerful than greed.”
    Fred Rogers

    “The paradox of our time in history is that we have taller buildings but
    shorter tempers, wider Freeways, but narrower viewpoints. We spend more,
    but have less, we buy more, but enjoy less. We have bigger houses and
    smaller families, more conveniences, but less time. We have more degrees
    but less sense, more knowledge, but less judgment, more experts, yet more
    problems, more medicine, but less wellness.

    We drink too much, smoke too much, spend too recklessly, laugh too little,
    drive too fast, get too angry, stay up too late, get up too tired, read too
    little, watch TV too much, and pray too seldom. We have multiplied our
    possessions, but reduced our values. We talk too much, love too seldom, and
    hate too often.

    We've learned how to make a living, but not a life. We've added years to
    life not life to years. We've been all the way to the moon and back, but
    have trouble crossing the street to meet a new neighbor. We conquered outer
    space but not inner space. We've done larger things, but not better things.

    We've cleaned up the air, but polluted the soul. We've conquered the atom,
    but not our prejudice. We write more, but learn less. We plan more, but
    accomplish less. We've learned to rush, but not to wait. We build more
    computers to hold more information, to produce more copies than ever, but we
    communicate less and less.

    These are the times of fast foods and slow digestion, big men and small
    character, steep profits and shallow relationships.

    These are the days of two incomes but more divorce, fancier houses, but
    broken homes. These are days of quick trips, disposable diapers, throwaway
    morality, one night stands, overweight bodies, and pills that do everything
    from cheer, to quiet, to kill. It is a time when there is much in the
    showroom window and nothing in the stockroom. A time when technology can
    bring this letter to you, and a time when you can choose either to share
    this insight, or to just hit delete...

    Remember, to spend some time with your loved ones, because they are not
    going to be around forever. Remember, say a kind word to someone who looks
    up to you in awe, because that little person soon will grow up and leave
    your side.

    Remember, to give a warm hug to the one next to you, because that is the
    only treasure you can give with your heart and it doesn't cost a cent.

    Remember, to say, "I love you" to your partner and your loved ones, but most
    of all mean it. A kiss and an embrace will mend hurt when it comes from
    deep inside of you.

    Remember to hold hands and cherish the moment for someday that person might
    not be there again. Give time to love, give time to speak! And give time to
    share the precious thoughts in your mind.”
    Bob Moorehead

    “Holding anger is a poison...It eats you from inside...We think that by hating someone we hurt them...But hatred is a curved blade...and the harm we do to others...we also do to ourselves.”
    Mitch Albom, The Five People You Meet in Heaven

    Anne Lamott
    “You can safely assume you've created God in your own image when it turns out that God hates all the same people you do.”
    Anne Lamott

  • #10
    Hermann Hesse
    “If you hate a person, you hate something in him that is part of yourself. What isn't part of ourselves doesn't disturb us.”

    Charles M. Schulz
    “Sometimes I lie awake at night and I ask, "Is life a multiple choice test or is it a true or false test?" ...Then a voice comes to me out of the dark and says, "We hate to tell you this but life is a thousand word essay.”
    Charles M. Schulz

    Charles M. Schulz
    “This is my depressed stance. When you're depressed, it makes a lot of difference how you stand. The worst thing you can do is straighten up and hold your head high because then you'll start to feel better. If you're going to get any joy out of being depressed, you've got to stand like this.”
    Charles M. Schulz

    Charles M. Schulz
    “If I stand here, I can see the Little Red Haired girl when she comes out of her house... Of course, if she sees me peeking around this tree, she'll think I'm the dumbest person in the world... But if I don't peek around the tree, I'll never see her... Which means I probably AM the dumbest person in the world... which explains why I'm standing in a batch of poison oak.”
    Charles M. Schulz

    Charles M. Schulz
    “Why can't we get all the people together in the world that we really like and then just stay together? I guess that wouldn't work. Someone would leave. Someone always leaves. Then we would have to say good-bye. I hate good-byes. I know what I need. I need more hellos.”
    Charles M. Schulz

    “Linus: What's wrong, Charlie Brown?
    Charlie Brown: I just got terrible news. The teacher says we're going on a field trip to an art museum; and I have to get an A on my report or I'll fail the whole course. Why do we have to have all this pressure about grades, Linus?
    Linus: Well, I think that the purpose of going to school is to get good grades so then you can go on to high school; and the purpose is to study hard so you can get good grades so you can go to college; and the purpose of going to college is so you can get good grades so you can go on to graduate school; and the purpose of that is to work hard and get good grades so we can get a job and be successful so that we can get married and have kids so we can send them to grammar school to get good grades so they can go to high school to get good grades so they can go to college and work hard...
    Charlie Brown: Good grief!”
    Charles M. Schulz

    Charles M. Schulz
    “I am not concerned with simply surviving. I am very concerned about improving. I start each day by examining yesterday's work and looking for areas where I can improve. I am always trying to draw the characters better, and trying to design each panel somewhat in the manner a painter would treat his canvas.”
    Charles M. Schulz, My Life with Charlie Brown
