Thought of the Day

“I believe that the great Creator
has put ores and oil on this earth
to give us a breathing spell.
As we exhaust them,
we must be prepared to fall back on our farms,
which is God’s true storehouse
and can never be exhausted.
We can learn to synthesize material
for every human need from things that grow.”

~ George Washington Carver

Todays Thought, Be Confident

Thought for Today
“I’ve spent most of my life walking under that hovering cloud,
jealousy,
whose acid raindrops blurred my vision
and burned holes in my heart.
Once I learned to use the umbrella of confidence,
the skies cleared up for me
and the sunshine called joy became my faithful companion.”

~Astrid Alauda~

Todays Thought, Ride a Bicycle

Thought for Today

“It is by riding a bicycle
that you learn the contours of a country best,
since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them.
Thus you remember them as they actually are,
while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you,
and you have no such accurate remembrance of country
you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.”

~ Ernest Hemingway
(1899-1961)
