Weekend Reflections

Anyone can sympathize with the sufferings of a friend, but it requires a very fine nature to sympathize with a friend's success. Oscar Wilde

I've learned from experience that the greater part of our happiness or misery depends on our dispositions and not on our circumstances.  Martha Washington

Hi Sylvia, I noticed that your complete blog address wasn't linked so I replaced it and now it seems to be working. I cut and pasted http://www.sylviafromoverthehill.blogspot.com/ to replace

I appreciate the glow in the sky and on the water!

Reader Wil said...

These quotes are so good. It means that if we feel unhappy we shouldn't blame the circumstances but find a way to recover ourselves.
Your header is great fun! Do you also start the speech from the throne with: " My government...." ?
You wrote that you are also 80. So will I be in December. My Australian daughter and family will come here to celebrate. I am looking forward to seeing them .

Your photos are great as always, Sylvia and the quotes are thought provoking. I was sympathizing with a friend today. I'm wondering would it be harder to feel happy for someone's success? Interesting thought.

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.
