#Wisdom #Jokes & #Travel At My Quality Time Blog >>> “Smart people learn from their mistakes. But the real sharp ones learn from the mistakes of others.” >>> The Archway, Kearney, Nebraska, USA


Today's Thoughts::: “Smart people learn from their mistakes. But the real sharp ones learn from the mistakes of others.”
“We humans are conflicted beings. Our beliefs don't always harmonize with our instincts, and our behavior doesn't always reflect our beliefs. ... We wage war between the person we are and the person we hope to become.”
“Choices determine character.”
“Luck has a way of evaporating when you lean on it.”
“Running toward danger is foolhardy. ... But so is closing your eyes to it. Many perils become less dangerous once you understand their potential hazards.”
“We all posses different gifts and abilities. How we use those gifts determines who we are.”
― Brandon Mull

“Live to the point of tears.” >>> Gossip is a bad thing. >>> WISDOM JOKES AT MY QUALITY TIME BLOG. >>> BEHIND BLUE EYES. >>> Listen To Your Emotions at My Quality Time Blog "WILDFIRE"


Today's Thoughts::: “Don’t walk in front of me… I may not follow

Don’t walk behind me… I may not lead
Walk beside me… just be my friend.”
“In the depth of winter, I finally learned that within me there lay an invincible summer.”
“Man is the only creature who refuses to be what he is.”
“I would rather live my life as if there is a god and die to find out there isn't, than live my life as if there isn't and die to find out there is.”
“People hasten to judge in order not to be judged themselves.”
“Live to the point of tears.”
― Albert Camus


Here's why you should not GOSSIP.
In Ancient Greece, Socrates had a great reputation of wisdom. One day, someone came to find the great philosopher and said to him:
- Do you know what I just heard about your friend?
- A moment, replied Socrates. Before you tell me, I would like to test you the three sieves.
- The three sieves?
- Yes, continued Socrates. Before telling anything about the others, it's good to take the time to filter what you mean.
I call it the test of the three sieves.
The first sieve is the TRUTH. Have you checked if what you're going to tell me is true?
- No, I just heard it.
- Very good! So, you don't know if it's true.
We continue with the second sieve, that of KINDNESS. What you want to tell me about my friend, is it good?
- Oh, no! On the contrary.
- So, questioned Socrates, you want to tell me bad things about him and you're not even sure they're true? Maybe you can still pass the test of the third sieve, that of UTILITY. Is it useful that I know what you're going to tell me about this friend?
- No, really.
- So, concluded Socrates, what you were going to tell me is neither true, nor good, nor useful. Why, then, did you want to tell me this?
"Gossip is a bad thing.
In the beginning it may seem enjoyable and fun, but in the end, it fills our hearts with bitterness and poisons us, too!"

On a dark, flat land she rides
On a pony she named wildfire
With a whirlwind by her side

The site for Jamestown was picked for several reasons, all of which met criteria the Virginia Company, who funded the settlement, said to follow in picking a spot for the settlement. The site was surrounded by water on three sides (it was not fully an island yet) and was far inland; both meant it was easily defensible against possible Spanish attacks. The water was also deep enough that the English could tie their ships at the shoreline - good parking! The site was also not inhabited by the Native population. CLICK TO READ MORE

PRAYER'S TO LIVE BY... Relieve me of the bondage of self... Churches of Cades Cove... #Wisdom #Jokes & #Travel #Wisdom #Jokes & #Travel At My Quality Time Blog....



Prayer of Saint Francis of Assisi :
Lord, make me an instrument of thy peace! That where there is hatred, I may bring love. That where there is wrong, I may bring the spirit of forgiveness. That where there is discord, I may bring harmony. That where there is error, I may bring truth. That where there is doubt, I may bring faith. That where there is despair, I may bring hope. That where there are shadows, I may bring light. That where there is sadness, I may bring joy. Lord, grant that I may seek rather to comfort than to be comforted. To understand, than to be understood. To love, than to be loved. For it is by self-forgetting that one finds. It is by forgiving that one is forgiven. It is by dying that one awakens to Eternal Life. Amen

The Serenity Prayer 

God, grant me the Serenity
To accept the things I cannot change...
Courage to change the things I can,
And Wisdom to know the difference.

Living one day at a time,
Enjoying one moment at a time,
Accepting hardship as the pathway to peace.
Taking, as He did, this sinful world as it is,
Not as I would have it.
Trusting that He will make all things right
if I surrender to His will.
That I may be reasonably happy in this life,
And supremely happy with Him forever in the next.

Our Father | Lord’s Prayer

Our Father,
who art in heaven,
hallowed be thy name;
thy kingdom come;
thy will be done
on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread;
and forgive us our trespasses
as we forgive those who trespass against us;
and lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil.

Third Step Prayer

I offer myself to Thee
To build with me & to do with me as Thou wilt.
Relieve me of the bondage of self, that I may better do Thy will.

Take away my difficulties,
That victory over them may bear witness
To those I would help of Thy Power,
Thy love & Thy way of life,
May I do Thy will always! Amen

Today's Thought:: “The most important persuasion tool you have in your entire arsenal is integrity.”
“The greatest of all mistakes is to do nothing because you think you can only do a little.”
“If you aim at nothing, you will hit it every time.”
“If you go out looking for friends, you're going to find they are very scarce. If you go out to be a friend, you'll find them everywhere.”
“Go as far as you can see and you will see further.”
"Gratitude is the healthiest of all human emotions. The more you express gratitude for what you have, the more likely you will have even more to express gratitude for."
"There are no traffic jams on the extra mile."
― Zig Ziglar

Cantwell Cliffs

Cantwell Cliffs is located in the northern reaches of Hocking Hills - 17 miles from Old Man's Cave on S.R. 374. Its remote location discourages visitation, but those who travel the extra distance will not be disappointed. Many visitors proclaim the Cantwell area as the most picturesque in Hocking County.

Today's Thoughts “Every minute you spend with someone gives them a part of your life and takes part of theirs.”

“It is strange how we hold on to the pieces of the past while we wait for our futures.”
“In the end you can't always choose what to keep. You can only choose how you let it go.”
“You cannot change your journey if you are unwilling to move at all.”
“Growing apart doesn't change the fact that for a long time we grew side by side; our roots will always be tangled. I'm glad for that.”
