The kindness motive

 

 

   Kindness can become its own motive. We are made kind by being kind.

                                                           –Eric Hoffer

Our admiration – sorting out the sort.

 

When I was young, I used to admire intelligent people; as I grow older, I admire kind people.
                                                     

                                                –Abraham Joshua Heschel

As I Get Older I Ponder…..

As I Get Older I Ponder...

1. Now that food has replaced sex in my life, I can't even
  get into my own pants.

2. Marriage changes passion. Suddenly you're in bed with a
  relative.

3. I saw a woman wearing a sweatshirt with "Guess" on it.
  So I said, "Implants?" She hit me.

4. I don't do drugs. At my age I get the same effect just
  standing up fast.

5. Sign in a Chinese Pet Store: "Buy one dog, get one
  flea..."

6. I don't approve of political jokes. I've seen too many
  of them get elected.

7. There are two sides to every divorce: Yours and
  Sh1t-head's.

8. I love being married. It's so great to find that one
  special person you want to annoy for the rest of your life.

9. Isn't having a smoking section in a restaurant like
  having a peeing section in a swimming pool?

10. Why is it that most nudists are people you don't want
   to see naked?

11. A good friend will come and bail you out of jail...but,
   a true friend will be sitting next to you saying,
   "Sh1t...that was fun!"

12. I signed up for an exercise class and was told to wear
   loose-fitting clothing. If I HAD any loose-fitting
   clothing, I wouldn't have signed up in the first place!

13. When I was young we used to go "skinny dipping," now I
   just "chunky dunk."

14. Wouldn't it be nice if whenever we messed up our life
   we could simply press "Ctrl Alt Delete' and start all over?

15. Just remember...if the world didn't suck, we'd all fall
   off.

16. Wouldn't you know it...Brain cells come and brain cells
   go, but FAT cells live forever.

17 Some days you're the dog; some days you're the hydrant.

The greatest……

The greatest…..

The greatest achievement is selflessness.

The greatest worth is self-mastery.

The greatest quality is seeking to serve others.

The greatest precept is continual awareness.

The greatest medicine is the emptiness of everything.

The greatest action is not conforming with the worlds ways.

The greatest magic is transmuting the passions.

The greatest generosity is non-attachment.

The greatest goodness is a peaceful mind.

The greatest patience is humility.

The greatest effort is not concerned with results.

The greatest meditation is a mind that lets go.

The greatest wisdom is seeing through appearances.

                      Atisha (11th century Tibetan Buddhist master)

A SMILE…

A SMILE…
—————————————– —————————————
A Smile costs nothing, but gives much.

It enriches those who receive, without making poorer those who give.

It takes but a moment, but the memory of it sometimes lasts forever.

None is so rich or mighty that he can get along without it,  and none is so poor, but that he can be made rich by it.

A Smile creates happiness in the home, fosters good will in business,
        and is the countersign of friendship.

It brings rest to the weary, cheer to the discouraged, sunshine to the sad,
        and it is nature’s best antidote for trouble.

Yet it cannot be bought, begged, borrowed, or stolen,
          for it is something that is of no value to anyone, until it is given away.

Some people are too tired to give you a smile;
       Give them one of yours, as none needs a smile so much as he who has no
               more to give.
