Hawaii Trees

"There are two types of people:
 Those who come into a room
 and say,
 'Well, here I am!',
and those who say,
'Ah, there you are.'"

Frederick L. Collins


" I try to be like the latter.
 I do everything in my power
 to avoid the former. "
Carmi Levy

“ Knowing is not enough;
 we must apply. 
Willing is not enough; 
we must do.”


" When there is no enemy
 the enemies
 outside cannot
 hurt you. "

 African Proverb

" The foolish man
 lies awake all night
 thinking of his many
 when the morning comes
 he is worn out 
and his trouble is 
just as it was. "

 Norse Proverb

" I never feel age..
.If you have 
creative work,
 you don't have
 age or time. "

 Louise Nevelson

The trees are wise. If only we could hear their stories. DrumMajor

Yvonne Osborne said...

I, too, hope to be the latter. Sure know too many who are the former. Great quotes, all of them.

Charles Gramlich said...

That Norse proverb pretty much encapsulated my night last night.

Love what you've done with the third image Cloudia, looks fab, and seeing as I grew up in Africa I also love the old African saying that goes with it. Happy weekend.

I'm deeply cool you are.

Shabbat shalom, and shana tovah. Only sweetness for you, my friend...not only in the coming year, but in the 120 years after that, as well.

The Carmi Levy quote was inspirational. Thank you both.

Hilary said...

Oh you quoted Carmi! When I met him at a Bar Mitzvah a few months ago, he had just walked into the room and I thought "Oh there he is!" ;)

Shana Tova, my friend.
