Quote of the week

I heard a quote recently that I have since found out was wrong, but I like the new version better;

“I do not have a soul, I am a soul, I have a body”

It’s not the type of thing I normally pay more attention to, but for some reason it resonates with me.

I think an obligatory scenic image should follow it, so here is a iPhone snap I took while walking my dog at silly o’clock in he morning a few months ago.

Thoughtful Thursday

Very busy week this week so not much blogging, still away from home and working long days, looking forward to getting back at the end of the month.  My 3 week trip is past 6 weeks and still counting.

Mixed emotions with the people I’m working with over the last few days, one guy had to leave as he tragically lost his son, whilst  a couple of days later another got a call from home to say he was going to be the proud father of a baby boy.  It all seemed quite poignant and as I missed missed wordless Wednesday, I thought I would do a ‘Thoughtful Thursday’ for the first time with a quote I read on a wall and has stuck with me ever since;

“When the power of love overcomes the love of power, the world will know peace”

Quote of the day; Theodore Roosevelt

“It is not the critic who counts, not the eman who points out how the strong man stumbled, or where the doer of deeds could have done better.

The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena; whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs and comes short again and again; who knows the greatest enthusiasms, the great devotions, and spends himself in a worthy cause; who,at best, knows in the end the triumph of high achievement; and who at the worst, if he fails, at least he fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory nor defeat.”

Man is free at the moment he wishes to be – Voltaire

A long time ago ( but not in a galaxy far far away) I spotted this pic and quote that someone had put together on Flickr and I thought it was fantastic. unfortunately I cant remember who it was, I can only be honest and say it’s not my work, I’ll share anyway;

Star Wars Voltaire

Man is free at the moment he wishes to be – Voltaire

Best piece of advice I ever received;

If you like doing something do it more.  If you don’t like doing it, do it less.  There ain’t nothing more to life than that.

Random but true.

Quote of the day

Being that I have uprooted myself and moved thousands of miles twice in the last 3 years I like this;

‘Not all who wander are lost’

J RR Tolkien
