Evening, Wisdom and Beauty!

Action may not always bring happiness; but there is no happiness without action.
Benjamin Disraeli

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

Peace cannot be achieved through violence, it can only be attained through understanding.

Now that we are in the winter season for sure, the blue of those hydrangeas was just startlingly beautiful.

Beautiful quotes, soothing and calming. And fabulous captures for the day to start going. Have a wonderful week Sylvia :)

Hi there - the words under that last image should be far better known than they are.

I have a foot in both Australia and the UK - and neither gives me much of a feel for your country. I hope you are right and the some good can come from this terrible wrong.

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.
