*Granny's Little Rolodex of Wisdom

August 6

The only conquests which are
permanent, and leave no regret,
are our conquests over ourselves.


August 8

Forgiveness ought to be like
a cancelled note, torn in two and
burned up, so that it can never be
shown against the man.

Henry Ward Beecher

August 11

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.

Henry David Thoreau

August 15

To know what you prefer, instead of
humbly saying Amen to what the world
tells you you ought to prefer, is to
have kept your soul alive.

Robert L. Stevenson

August 20

There are many moments in friend-
ship, as in love, when silence is
beyond words.

August 24

On the mountains of truth you can never
climb in vain: either you will reach a
point higher up today, or you will be
training your powers so that you will
be able to climb higher tomorrow.


August 27

God does not ask about

our ability or
our inability, but
our availability.

September 13

A good laugh is sunshine in a house;
a little nonsense, now and then, is
relished by the wisest men.
