Nobility, Inspiration, and Happiness

A  L  O  H  A !
Royal Hawaiian Hotel

" The only real nobility

 is in being superior 

to your former self. "

Whitney Young

" If you wait for inspiration

 you'll be standing 

on the corner

 after the parade

 is a mile down the street. "

Ben Nicholas 

" Happiness

 is not a station 

you arrive at,

 but a manner 

of traveling. "

Margaret Lee Runbeck

"The dose determines the poison."
Paracelsus, 1537

" If one oversteps

 the bounds of moderation,

 the greatest pleasures

 cease to please. "

I haven't OD'd yet I simply swallow and process. The world of the eyes is not my home only a stopping off point.

A great daily post. The Epictetus quote is so true. The Stoic knew of what he spoke.

Charles Gramlich said...

Don't know if I can ever be superior to my sweet and innocent childhood self. Seen too much since then.

Always so nice to see what you creatively bring to us. I have a little trouble with Epictetus. I like May West's quote better. "Too much of a good thing is very, very good." That's what I thought about last night when I ate a chocolate candy bar. Yum.

Cloudia, thanks so much for your kind comment on my recent post. It's nice to have friends during difficult times.

The green invades the terrace on your first picture. Excellent.

I hope you are enjoying your week. It's hot, but the trades are blowing, and everything is growing like crazy in Hilo!
