Interfearance

Becoming a witness of an unjust or rude situation, one often is at a loss of words.

Here some suggestions for interference:

A) “where are your manners?”
B) “what’s all this here?”

If the response is” it’s none of your business” you may answer:

A) “your behaviour is offensive and makes me feel uncomfortable”
B) “I’m feeling insulted as a human being”

now hope you don’t get hit in the nose

All men dream but not equally

“Those who dream in the dark recesses of the night awake in the day to find all was vanity.

But the dreamers of day are dangerous men, for they may act their dreams with open eyes, and make it possible.”

T.E. Lawrence

Tony Kirby:
Your family, boy, they knocked me for a loop. I don’t know, it just seems like in their own way, they found what everybody’s looking for. People spend their whole lives building castles in the air and then nothing ever comes of it. I wonder why that is? Well, it takes courage. Everybody’s afraid to live.

Alice Sycamore: You ought to hear Grandpa on that subject. He says most people nowadays are run by fear. Fear of what they eat, fear of what they drink, fear of their jobs, their future, fear of their health. They’re scared to save money and scared to spend it. You know what his pet aversion is? The people who commercialize on fear, you know they scare you to death so they can sell you something you don’t need. So, he kinda taught all of not to be afraid of anything, but do what we want to do. Well, its kinda fun, anyway.

What It Takes To Be Great

To bear up under loss- to fight the bitterness of defeat and the weakness of grief- to beat victor over anger- to smile with tears are close- to resist desease and evil men and base instincts- to hate hate and to love love- to go on when it seems good to die- to seek ever the glory and the dream- to look up with unquenchable faith in something ever more about to be- that is what any man can do, and so be great.

Youth Not A Time of Life

Youth is not a time of life-it is a state of mind…It is a temper of the will, a quality of the imagination, a vigor of the emotions. Youth means a predominance of courage over timidity, of the appetite of adventure over love of ease. This often exists in a man of fifty more than in a boy of twenty. Nobody grows old by merely living a number of years. People grow old by deserting their ideals….

“Whether seventy or sixteen, there is in every beings heart the love of wonder, the amazement at the stars and the starlike things and thoughts, the undaunted challenge of events, the unfailing childlike appetite for what next, and the joy and the game of life. You are as young as your faith, as old as your doubt; as young as your self-confidence, as old as your fear; as young as your hope, as old as your despair. In the central place of your heart there is a wireless station. So long as it receives messages of beauty, hope, cheer, grandeur, courage, and power from the earth, from men, and from the infinite, so long are you young.” International Paper monthly 1930
