We all tend to measure our worth by what we DO -
the actions we take.

A bowl of soup served with love

One who is injured ought not to return the injury,

However carefully we plan our future,
we are always climbing the steps to nowhere.

and that is good.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

It is better to do one's own duty,
however defective it may be,

Each of us holds a different image of God.
There are as many perspectives on
the nature of God as there are people.
However much any of us may choose to argue,
or to fight and kill, for our point of view,
the nature of God is an unanswerable question.
Perhaps there is a specific answer,
that we will never learn - in this lifetime.
Perhaps the nature of God is so complex and multifaceted
that each view of God describes an aspect of the complex whole.
Or perhaps the nature of God is actually defined by our beliefs.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

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

Everyone has an opinion on many subjects
and is ready to share those opinions -
labeling them as "truth."
Sometimes it is relatively easy
to filter out these opinions.
Upon hearing an ad for the latest
weight-loss powder on late-night TV,
our skepticism leaps to our defense.
However, if we have heard the same opinion for years
from our parents, friends,
government officials, or religious leaders,
we are more likely to believe without questioning
than to raise our filter of skepticism
and ask the hard questions.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

A conservative is a man with two perfectly good legs who,
however, has never learned how to walk forward.
- Franklin D. Roosevelt

However, if a poem can be reduced to a prose sentence,
there can't be much to it.

and beyond that.

If you make a living, if you earn your own money,
you're free - however free one can be on this planet.

to err like any other fellow mortal.
I own, however, that I have humility enough
to confess my errors and to retrace my steps.
- Mohandas (Mahatma) Gandhi

Equality and development will not be achieved however
if peace is not understood from women's' point of view.
- Jenny Shipley

However low a man sinks he never reaches the level of the police.
- Quentin Crisp

It is not cowardly, quite the contrary,
to seek to meet the adversary and know his intentions.
However, it is cowardly, shameful and treasonable to lay down arms.
- King Hassan II

the loss of youth, and everything that goes with it,
is quite a trauma.
