Honest Abe

It’s surprising how much you can accomplish if you don’t care who gets the credit.

– Abraham Lincoln

Karmanyevaadhikaaraste maa phaleshu kadaachana;
Maa karmaphalahetur bhoor maa te sango’stwakarmani.

You have a right to perform your dutiful action, but you are not entitled to the fruits of action. Never consider yourself to be the cause of the results of your activities, and never be attached to inaction.

– Bhagvad Gita Ch.2 verse 47

Mahatma Gandhi

And on these thoughts, lets remember Gandhi on his birthday today.


Writing is good, thinking is better. Cleverness is good, patience is better.

– from Herman Hesse’s Siddhartha

People come into your life for a reason, a season or a lifetime.
When you know which one it is,
you will know what to do for that person.

When someone is in your life for a REASON,
it is usually to meet a need you have expressed.
They may seem like a godsend and they are.
They are there for the reason you need them to be.

Then, without any wrongdoing on your part or at an inconvenient time,
this person will say or do something to bring the relationship to an end.
Sometimes they die.
Sometimes they walk away.
Sometimes they act up and force you to take a stand.
What we must realize is that our need has been met, our desire fulfilled, their work is done.
The prayer you sent up has been answered and now it is time to move on.

Some people come into your life for a SEASON,
because your turn has come to share, grow or learn.
They bring you an experience of peace or make you laugh.
They may teach you something you have never done.
They usually give you an unbelievable amount of joy.
Believe it, it is real.
But only for a season.

LIFETIME relationships teach you lifetime lessons,
things you must build upon in order to have a solid emotional foundation.
Your job is to accept the lesson,
love the person and put what you have learned to use in all other relationships and areas of your life.

It is said that love is blind but friendship is clairvoyant.

Cheerful boy

Running long and hard is an ideal antidepressant, since it’s hard to run and feel sorry for yourself at the same time. Also, there are those hours of clear headedness that follow a long run.

– Monte Davis, runner
