Successful Acorns

A  L  O  H  A 
" Successful people are

 always looking for opportunities 

to help others. -









- Unsuccessful people are

 always asking,

 'What's in it for me?' "

" The ungrateful one
 is like a hog 
under a tree eating acorns,
 but never looking up 
to see 
where they come from. "
                                        Timothy Dexter

i think on some level we all ask whats in it for us as we measure our involvement...but truly compassionate souls live beyond that...

Spiritually successful definitely look to help others. Love is not a zero sum condition; it grows with use.

While I agree, I think it depends on how you define successful...

Love your photos, Cloudia. I'm sorry I haven't been able to visit. I've been working madly on a 100 page photo book for my granddaughter about their 5 week visit. I'm almost done, but now I have to work on our Hokkaido trip. Sigh...
