“An old day passes, a new day arrives. The important thing is to make it meaningful: a meaningful friend – or a meaningful day.” ~Dalai Lama

“Once we rid ourselves of traditional thinking we can get on with creating the future.” ~James Bertrand

“Life stands before me like an eternal spring with new and brilliant clothes.” ~Carl Friedrich Gauss

“Creativity is just connecting things. When you ask creative people how they did something, they feel a little guilty because they didn’t really do it, they just saw something. It seemed obvious to them after a while. That’s because they were able to connect experiences they’ve had and synthesize new things.” ~Steve Jobs

“The more you find out about the world, the more opportunities there are to laugh at it.” ~Bill Nye

  1. Thanks for making this day meaningful with your post and your friendship.

  2. Love the quotations and the thought. Here’s one of my favorites: “We create ourselves out of our innermost intuitions.” Can’t remember the author–a Taoist saying.

    • Thank you. 🙂 And good quote; I am copying that one down for use in a future blog post. I like that concept; that our sense of self stems from what we know best of ourselves. I think it’s an apt way of saying, “Know Yourself”.

      Thanks for the great comment!
