Evening, Wisdom and Beauty

A man who dares to waste one hour of time has not discovered the value of life.
Charles Darwin

Any idiot can face a crisis - it's day to day living that wears you out.
Anton Chekhov

Believe that life is worth living and your belief will help create the fact.
William James

Beautiful skies Sylvia! Did Darwin really say that? Good grief, I'd hate to have had to live with him ;>). I like the one that somebody said to the effect that if you enjoy the time you waste it isn't really wasted.

Gorgeous sky!

Yes, very tedious of Darwin. I'm still trying to make my way through his Voyage of the Beagle.
I agree, however, with Chekhov. We seem to get adrenalin to get us through crises, but we can be completely exhausted by tedium.
Your photos are beautiful, as always. I hope you don't get tired of hearing that.

Beautiful skies today and the Darwin quote made me laugh.... I'm not wasting but just trying to figure out where to get more time (then I'll waste just a little)

Beautiful once again, Sylvia. I agree with Chekhov. I've managed to overcome and live-to-tell-the-tale after a crisis. But day to day problems do indeed wear one out. I'm trying to catch up on blog visits after a busy week. Thanks for visiting mine. Blessings and hugs Jo

Although your sunset pictures are gorgeous, I like that first picture. It looks as if a wave of clouds is lurking at the bottom of the photo just waiting to burst out and cover the sky.

Janie said...

Your evening skies are glorious. I enjoyed the quotes, too. Food for thought.

Pietro said...

Sylvia, I like very much your nice posts "Evening, Wisdom and Beauty"!

Su-sieee! Mac said...

Gorgeously glorious! Each and every one of them.

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.
