Quote of the day

"Every one of us, unconsciously, works out a personal philosophy of life, by which we are guided, inspired, and corrected, as time goes on. It is this philosophy by which we measure out our days, and by which we advertise to all about us the man, or woman, that we are. . . . It takes but a brief time to scent the life philosophy of anyone. It is defined in the conversation, in the look of the eye, and in the general mien of the person. It has no hiding place. It's like the perfume of the flower — unseen, but known almost instantly. It is the possession of the successful, and the happy. And it can be greatly embellished by the absorption of ideas and experiences of the useful of this earth."
                                                  --George Matthew Adams


  1. So interesting...I have a feeling I'll be pondering that for a while.

  2. Yes - I truly believe that you can sense the ESSENCE of a person in exactly the ways described's lovely.


  3. I agree Ann Marie. You can just tell. In the things that a person says or doesn't say, does or doesn't do. How they act when no one is watching (or they don't think anyone is). Have a super night!
