My daily aphorisms. Reflections on life, death, beauty, change, love, happiness, etc., written in a poetic and whimsical style.
We should so much apply this sentence in our lives, with our family, kids, friends, lovers. I love it!
It reminds me a nature quote: "The charming landscape which I saw this morning is indubitably made up of some 20 or 30 farms. Miller owns this field, Locke that, and Manning the woodland beyond. But none of them owns the landscape. There is a property in the horizon which no man has but he whose eye can integrate all the parts, that is, the poet." [Ralph Waldo Emerson]
Always keen words to live by, thank you Marty for reminding me, cheers! :-)
Love is something we should all appreciate. Great idea. http://thejoyofjesuschurchonline.blogspot.com/
So simple yet so profound...
I am reminded always of your big heart and the vast reaches of your soul. You are like an anchor in an angry sea.
So true! And unfortunately so many people obsessed with possession...
I have read somewhere: "Possessiveness is of the ego, which is limitless in it's desire to control people and own things"
and another one that touches my heart! wow!
Therefore I own this post. cheers
Hmmm... can you send this to my (soon-to-be-ex) husband?
what a nice post, it is clear that we shouldn't try to posses anything in our life, but act like we care for that person or animal, and the feelings will always be return.Thoughts of a Career Woman
Wonderful ...The beauty Appreciation...
Love this...thank you.
I often think about that with my home. Even though we own it, we're really just leasing it, so it never really feels like ours. But when it's a quiet morning and I look out at the yard and take it all in, then I really love it.
Marty, as an art lover, when I first saw this my mind immediately jumped to all of those celebrities and other rich folks who have art collections put together for them by someone else, without really understanding what they are buying. Possession is just a means of control, and while it may lead to appreciation, the best things in life are those we truly feel in our bones.
So many people have nothing at all.
Just a couple of words but so powerfulthank you for those words.
You may be able to own things but you can never really own a person, even kids grow up and leave home in the end.
That's how I feel every time I visit the mountains!
