I Wish I’d Said It

The truth is that airports saw more sincere kisses than wedding halls.

The walls of hospitals have heard more prayers than the walls of churches.

I wonder why the Frisbee keeps getting bigger.

Then, it hits me.

There’s zero correlation between being the best talker and having the best ideas.

One of the pleasant things those of us who write or paint do is to have the daily miracle.  It does come.

I Wish I’d Said It

I beg you…to have patience with everything unresolved in your heart and try to love the questions themselves as if  they were locked rooms or books written in a very foreign language. Don’t search for the answers, which could not be given you now, because you would not be able to live them. And the points is, to live everything. Live the questions now. Perhaps then, someday far in the future, you will gradually, without even noticing it, live your way into the answer…

Rainer Maria Rilke

I Wish I’d Said It

You may be living by what you get,

but you make a life from what you give.

Winston Churchill



I Wish I’d Said It

For attractive lips, speak words of kindness.

For lovely eyes, seek out the good in people.

For a slim figure, share your food with the hungry.

For beautiful hair, let a child run their fingers through it once a day.

For poise, walk with the knowlege that you never walk alone.

As you grow older, you will discover that you have two hands,

one for helping yourself, and the other for helping others

    Audrey Hepburn
