Today and every day - take care of yourself - but
never become too wrapped up in
yourself and always have time
to love and care for others.
Open yourself to the lessons that life teaches you and
do not fear the unknown because your
Higher Power controls it.
Barry Stevens quotes:
"Don't push the river; it flows by itself."
Take a honest look at your life.
Always try hard to remove deceit and
right any wrongs that you find
within. You will then feel yourself
becoming more honest and
trustworthy with each new day.
I believe in animal rights, and high
among them is the right to the gentle
stroke of a human hand.
Animals are such agreeable friends - they
ask no questions, they
pass no criticisms.
If all the beasts were gone, men would die
from a great loneliness of spirit, for whatever
happens to the beasts also happens to the man.
All things are connected. Whatever befalls the
Earth befalls the sons of the Earth.
An animal's eyes have the power to
speak a great language.
Animals have these advantages over man:
they never hear the clock strike, they die without
any idea of death, they have no theologians to
instruct them, their last moments are not disturbed
by unwelcome and unpleasant ceremonies, their
funerals cost them nothing, and no one
starts lawsuits over their wills.
~Voltaire, letter to Count Schomberg
