Drinking Buddies

A  L  O  H  A !
The object of life 

is not to be on the 

side of the majority, but 

to escape finding oneself in

the ranks of the insane.

          Marcus Aurelius 

Drinking Buddies Trading Quotes
I have absolutely no pleasure in the

stimulants in which I sometimes so madly 

indulge. It has not been in the pursuit of 

pleasure that I have periled life and reputation

 and reason. It has been the desperate 

attempt to escape from torturing memories, 

from a sense of insupportable loneliness and 

a dread of some strange impending doom.

Edgar Allan Poe

I drink to make other 

people more interesting.

" A`ohe hana nui ke alu `ia "

No task is too big 

when done 

together by all.

           Hawaiian Wisdom

Happiness is like a butterfly, 

which when pursued is

just beyond your grasp, but 

which, if you sit down quietly 

it may alight upon you.


We must learn to be still 

in the midst of activity 

and to be vibrantly 

alive in repose.

          Indira Gandhi

Funnel Tunnel Puzzle

A   L   O   H   A  !
Those who tell the 

stories rule society.


If you're trapped in a tunnel. . .

 The exit is in your mind!

          Mehmet Murat ildan

It’s a tunnel, 

not a cave.

Richie Norton

It is not your role to 

make others happy;

it is your role to keep 

yourself in balance. 

When you pay attention 

to how you feel 

and practice 

self-empowering thoughts 

that align with 


you will offer an example

of thriving that will be of 

tremendous value to those 

who have the benefit 

of observing you.

Young & Old - Near & Far

A   L   O   H   A  !
Most of the shadows 

of this life are caused

by our standing in 

one's own sunshine.

Ralph Waldo Emerson

Bon Dancing Last Summer. Link
Sunshine is delicious, 

rain is refreshing, 

wind braces us up, 

snow is exhilarating; 

there is really no such 

thing as bad weather, 

only different kinds 

of good weather.     

John Ruskin

If you spend 

your whole life waiting 

for the storm, you'll 

never enjoy the sunshine.

Morris West

There is no investment 

you can make which will 

pay you so well as 

the effort to scatter 

sunshine and good cheer 

through your establishment.

      Orison Swett Marden

 The smaller the creature,

the bolder its spirit.

The Most Beautiful Place

A   L   O   H   A !

The very center of 

your heart is where 

life begins. The most 

beautiful place 

on earth. 


Self-Portrait Reflected 2020
I've never seen a problem 

that was solved by only 

complaining about it. 

Steve Keating

1800 Block Kalakaua Avenue Honolulu
Wherever you go 

becomes a part 

of you somehow.

 Anita Desai

Three things in human life 

are important. 

The first is to be kind. 

The second is to be kind. 

And the third is to be kind.

Henry James

Soul Food

A   L   O   H   A  !

Yesterday is not 

ours to recover, 

but tomorrow is ours 

to win or lose. 

Lyndon B. Johnson

The learner always begins 

by finding fault, but 

the scholar sees the 

positive merit in 



Don't be eye candy, 

be soul food.     

Truida Genis

You are the sum total 

of everything you've ever 

seen, heard, eaten, smelled, 

been told, forgot - it's all there. 

Everything influences each of us, 

and because of that I try 

to make sure that my 

experiences are positive

Maya Angelou
