    All comes and go . Nothing remains .

    And the song is on repeat over and over again. A generation goes, and a generation comes, but the earth remains forever. The sun rises, and the sun goes down, and hastens to the place where it rises. The wind blows to the south and goes around to the north; around and around...

    Death is not our greatest fear.

    .our greatest fear, is being ourselves.. Our greatest fear..is that people won't accept us for who we really are..so we disguise ourselves with the various masks society offers. We blend..and reject who we really are..to make other people happy

    Listening To Others

    It is amazing what we can learn simply from listening to others. Sometimes we learn about what we should do, what not to do, and even something about ourselves. From my friends I have learned a great many things about the world and myself. It is interesting to listen to others...

    I've noticed that some people bring out the

    best in you & others bring out the worst. It's not necessarily a bad thing. Some people just don't mesh well together like others. I think It's a good indicator of who belongs in your life and who doesn't.

    "Life is a series of natural

    and spontaneous changes. Don't resist them; that only creates sorrow. Let reality be reality. Let things flow naturally forward in whatever way they like." "To attain knowledge, add things everyday. To attain wisdom, remove things every day." ~Lao Tzu.

    Only the fool seeks not wisdom, only the fool. Not to be confused with intelligence. I know wise people who can't do math. Intelligence is what you know, wisdom is how well you use what you know. Ideally a brilliant person should have both. Anyhow, I love the pursuit...

    You just don’t become a leader in one year.

    You’re prepped for it. When you’re at your lowest—but you got that faith—that gives you motivation. And when you have that motivation, that’s what makes you a leader..
