Something Nice

Here is something nice I read from the Lifetime Learning Companion by Donn and Jean Reed
(regarding the care of children):
Love them. Hug them often and tell them you love them. Make sure you separate the doer from the deed when they make mistakes or misbehave. Listen carefully and they will let you know what their needs are. Hold onto your patience and tongue until you know what you really want to say. Lead by example. How you live every day is what they will learn from and where they will gain their lasting values.

And another nice thought:
"Being alive is learning, and the extent of our learning may depend upon the extent to which we are really living."

Here is a thought that brought tears to my eyes today:
"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 he hears, however measured or far away." ~Thoreau
