- Leonard Nimoy

spiritual than religious.
- Leonard Nimoy

Some words having to do with the death of the people
in the World Trade Center attack had been added,

I struggled to get through the words;
tears were streaming down my cheeks.

AN INSPIRED LIFE: I HAVE A CHOICE
My key to living an inspired life involves
Embracing my history,
Understanding the function of expectations
and gently learning to have none;
Recognizing the power of attentive and conscious choices.
In all circumstances I acknowledge this,
IN ALL THINGS AND ALL WAYS, I HAVE CHOICE.
My choice resides in my perspective.
While I certainly do not control climate
and markets and roadways and others,
I do control myself and my response
to all those circumstances. I do indeed.
- Mary Anne Radmacher

In many ways, it is easier to be a good giver than a good receiver.
The giver chooses the gift and the timing.
More important, societal and religious traditions
tend to elevate the status of giver and lower the status of receiver.
When the Bible (Acts 20:32-35) speaks of it being
more blessed to give than to receive,
I believe that a better translation might be
"take" rather than "receive," as the context
of that passage is "coveting."
Certainly there is nothing blessed about coveting,
stealing, begging, or demanding,
however the skill of graciously receiving a freely offered gift
is another matter entirely.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

You may as well laugh at life,

God is the ultimate dance.
- Osho

Priorities - what's really important -
health, and doing what one wants to do -
it's certainly not money.

Certainly, travel is more than the seeing of sights;
it is a change that goes on,
deep and permanent, in the ideas of living.
- Miriam Beard

It is your own life, certainly, to spend as you choose.
