A most precious commodity. I wish we could make more of it, but that is not possible without the use of a time machine.
Our lives are but tiny flickers in an everlasting flame. There is only one “now” and that is at that split second. There are 60 “nows” in one minute and there is nothing we can do to make more, BUT this is O.K. when your seconds MATTER and are not squandered. We can choose how to make mindful decisions about how to live and more importantly how to “think” about our placement in this life.
Love yourself (the “right” way) and it will trickle down like a waterfall onto all of the people who love you and whom you love…..Respect time, create joy and find peace my friends.
The softer side of Albert Einstein and yep, even he had one….I think it was a part of his incredible mind. His genius was infinite……..
(For J.G.C., whom I gave this to a long long time ago).
“A human being is a part of the whole,
called by us universe, a part limited in
time and space. He experiences himself,
his thoughts, and feelings as something
separated from the rest – a kind of optical
delusion of his consciousness. This delusion
is a kind of prison for us, restricting us
to our personal desires and to affection
for a few persons nearest to us. Our task
must be to free ourselves from this prison
by widening our circle of compassion to
embrace all living creatures and the whole
of nature in its beauty.” – Albert Einstein
