The Greatest Salesman in the World

"Treat everyone you meet as if he or she were going to be dead by midnight. Extend to them all the care, kindness, and understanding you can muster, and do so with no thought of reward. Your life will never be the same." ~ Og Mandino

Life, Pre-existing

"If, instead of identifying ourselves with the work, we feel that the soul of the workman streams through us, we shall find the peace of the morning dwelling first in our hearts, and the fathomless powers of gravity and chemistry, and, over them, of life, pre-existing within us in their highest form." ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

A View From Space

After an orange cloud — formed as a result of a dust storm over the Sahara and caught up by air currents — reached the Philippines and settled there with rain, I understood that we are all sailing in the same boat.

Nature's Way

Nature's way is simple and elegant.
Everything happens in its own time and place.The river may overflow its banks orit may shrink to a trickle.Seasons of drought and high water are inevitable.But sooner or later, the river will reach the sea.The outcome is certain.No matter how far we stray from our essential nature,we will return to it.Our destiny is to become who we already are.
~ Paul Ferrini
