In Other Words

A vacation should be just
long enough for the boss to find out he misses you, but not long enough for him
to discover he can get along without you.
– Joe Moore

Familiar things happen,
and mankind does not bother about them.  It requires a very unusual mind to undertake the analysis of the obvious.
– Alfred North Whitehead (1861-1947)

You must not live with a
calculated motive of pleasing other people.  Such motive is ego-centered; it expects some kind
of reward.  When the reward fails to come, as it often does, the so-called pleasantness turns to secret resentment.
– Vernon Howard

Those who have suffered
understand suffering and therefore extend their hand.

– Patti  Smith
