The true harvest of my daily life
is somewhat as intangible and indescribable
as the tints of morning or evening.
It is a little star dust caught,
a segment of the rainbow
which I have clutched.

Thought for Today

“If a man walks in the woods
for love of them half of each day,
he is in danger of being regarded as a loafer.
But if he spends his days as a speculator,
shearing off those woods
and making the earth bald before her time,
he is deemed an industrious
and enterprising citizen.”

~ Henry David Thoreau

Thought for Today

“If a man does not keep pace with his companions
perhaps it is because he hears a different drummer.
Let him step to the music which he hears,
however measured or far away.”
