Evening, Wisdom and Beauty



Silent gratitude isn't much use to anyone. ~G.B. Stern



I would thank you from the bottom of my heart, but for you my heart has no bottom. ~Author Unknown



Kindness is the language which the deaf can hear and the blind can see. ~Mark Twain



The smallest act of kindness is worth more than the grandest intention. ~Oscar Wilde



I would maintain that thanks are the highest form of thought; and that gratitude is happiness doubled by wonder. ~G.K. Chesterton



He is a wise man who does not grieve for the things which he has not, but rejoices for those which he has. ~Epictetus



Who does not thank for little will not thank for much. ~Estonian Proverb

Beautiful and inspiring. That shot of the path through the trees is especially enticing. Where does it go, I wonder.

Love all you quotes today,..I would like to hope that this one... "I would thank you from the bottom of my heart, but for you my heart has no bottom" would be true for me!
Also loved the picture of the path through the woods!
Have a great week Sylvia.

I agree with Peggy that the photo of the path through the woods is really great. It's got a magical pull to it. You're just drawn into the photo.

What Can I Say?

What Can I Say?
I'm interested in almost everything. Use to like to travel, but it's too expensive now. I take Tai Chi classes, swim, volunteer in a Jump-start program for pre-schoolers. I'm an avid reader and like nearly everyone these days I follow politics avidly. I'm a former teacher and Special Projects Coordinator for a Telecommunications company, Assistant to the President of a Japanese silicon wafer manufacturing company. Am now enjoying retirement -- most of the time. I have two daughters, one son-in-law and two sons scattered all over the country. No grandchildren.
