Best Quote of the Week ~ [5/26/13]

          "People are often unreasonable and self-centered. Forgive them anyway. If you are kind, people may accuse you of ulterior motives. Be kind anyway. If you are honest, people may cheat you. Be honest anyway. If you find happiness, people may be jealous. Be happy anyway. The good you do today may be forgotten tomorrow. Do good anyway. Give the world the best you have and it may never be enough. Give your best anyway. For you see, in the end, it is between you and God. It was never between you and them anyway."
~Mother Teresa

Best Quote of the Week ~ [5/12/13]

Isolation by Geri Johnstone

          "I'm writing this letter at an outdoor cafe on a side street in Rome, sipping espresso as thick as the devil's sweat, and I have this strange feeling that I'm not myself anymore. It's hard to put into words, but I guess it's like I was fast asleep, and somebody came, disassembled me, and hurriedly put me back together again....My eyes tell me I'm the same old me, but something's different from usual. Not that I can clearly recall what 'usual' was."
~Sumire (from Haruki Murakami's Sputnik Sweetheart; [Never read the book, so I don't know the chapter or page number])
