"But oh, Beamish Nephew, beware of the day
If your Snark be a Boojum! For then
You will softly and suddenly vanish away,
And never be met with again!"

From "The Hunting of the Snark", Lewis Carroll

"If it is not truthful and not helpful, don't say it.
If it is truthful and not helpful, don't say it.
If it is not truthful and helpful, don't say it.
If it is truthful and helpful, wait for the right time.


I pledge to think more about the words I use.

I will try to see how gossip hurts people, including myself, and work to eliminate it from my life.

I will try to replace words that hurt with words that encourage, engage and enrich.

I will not become discouraged when I am unable to choose words perfectly, because making the world a better place is hard work.

And I am pledging to do that, one word at a time.

Quote DB

When I despair, I remember that all through history the ways of truth and love have always won. There have been tyrants, and murderers, and for a time they can seem invincible, but in the end they always fall. Think of it - always.
- Mahatma Gandhi

"Dear God," she prayed, "Let me be something every minute of every hour of
my life. Let me be gay; let me be sad. Let me be cold; let me be warm. Let
me be hungry ... have too much to eat. Let me be ragged or well-dressed. Let
me be sincere - be deceitful. Let me be truthful; let me be a liar. Let me
be honorable and let me sin. Only let me be something every blessed minute.
And when I sleep, let me dream, all the time so that not one little piece of
living is ever lost." ~ Betty Smith, "A Tree Grows in Brooklyn"

Proud member of the "bitter, man-hating "victims" of divorce living vicariously through her antics" conclave.

"...it is better for a person to die thinking they are healthy than to live thinking they are sick."

"Sticking feathers up your butt does not make you a chicken."--Tyler Durden

"I guess I could be pretty pissed off about what happened to me... but it's hard to stay mad, when there's so much beauty in the world. Sometimes I feel like I'm seeing it all at once, and it's too much, my heart fills up like a balloon that's about to burst... And then I remember to relax, and stop trying to hold on to it, and then it flows through me like rain and I can't feel anything but gratitude for every single moment of my stupid little life... You have no idea what I'm talking about, I'm sure. But don't worry... you will someday."--Lester Burnham

"This is the true joy in life - being used for a purpose recognized by yourself as a mighty one; being thoroughly worn out before you are thrown on the scrap heap; being a force of nature instead of a feverish selfish little clod of ailments and grievances."--George Bernard Shaw

"I don't know which is more discouraging, literature or chickens."
-- E. B. White


"I shall allow no man to belittle my soul by making me hate him."--Booker T. Washington

"If you wake up at a different time in a different place, could you wake up as a different person?"

"We must be willing to get rid of the life we've planned, so as to have the life that is waiting for us."--Joseph Campbell

"It takes a lot of courage to release the familiar and seemingly secure, to embrace the new. But there is no real security in what is no longer meaningful. There is more security in the adventurous and exciting, for in movement there is life, and in change there is power.”--Alan Cohen

"We're consumers. We are by-products of a lifestyle obsession. Murder, crime, poverty, these things don't concern me. What concerns me are celebrity magazines, television with 500 channels, some guy's name on my underwear. Rogaine, Viagra, Olestra..."--Tyler Durden

"We call that person who has lost his father, an orphan; and a widower that man who has lost his wife. But that man who has known the immense unhappiness of losing a friend, by what name do we call him? Here every language is silent and holds its peace in impotence."--Joseph Roux
