Change Your World

A  L  O  H  A !
"Never judge a book
 by its movie."

        J. W. Eagan












"Have you had a kindness shown?
 Pass it on; 
'Twas not given for thee alone,
 Pass it on; 
Let it travel down the years, 
Let it wipe another's tears,
 'Til in Heaven 
the deed appears - 
Pass it on. " 

Henry Burton
 (1840-1930)







" Ask yourself: 
Have you been kind today? 
Make kindness 
your modus operandi 
and change your world. "

Annie Lennox 


Thank YOU
Kind Friend!

I thrill to your comments.

                       Fondly, cloudia

Being kind is so much fun oui!

Lori Skoog said...

To pay it forward is the best! It's not a new idea, is it?

I never feel it appropriate to say whether I have been or not. All kindness is a gift given and once something is given it be best to forget that it was ever yours to give.

Love the quote about books and movies. I also like the pictures and the quotes about being kind. You're on a roll today.

My maxim Cloudia is that if you are kind then you usually get kindness in return.

TexWisGirl said...

nice reminders, cloudia!

Charles Gramlich said...

I definitely try not to judge a book by its movie!

So true- my daughter always has to read the book first- because she knows she's often totally upset with the movie changes! I finally saw Life of Pi this last weekend, and it's very worth seeing on the big screen if you haven't already! May peace and kindness follow you everywhere, Karen

The book for me is always the first, and later a movie that is not always so, and as I imagined. Yours.

I loved the Egan quote, but I'm still not likely to read "Gone with the Wind."

Robert Geiss said...

To the not-joy of my wife, I usually say no to seeing a movie once I have read the book already.

Great Lennox quote indeed ! Please have you all a good Thursday.

This is great.

Having grown up with an immediate family that didn't show much kindness, I have come to appreciate it wherever I find it.

Kay said...

I took a photo of a license plate to use on a blog post that said, "BE KIND." I thought that was pretty cool. And you, Cloudia are one of the kindest people I know.

Elephant's Child said...

Passing it on, and paying it forward are things I try very hard to do.
Another warm and lovely post - thank you.

Cloudia said...
