Learn To Feel It

 A   L   O   H   A  !

Discovering the truth 

about ourselves is 

a lifetime’s work, but 

it’s worth the effort.

Fred Rogers

Little by little 

we human beings are 

confronted with situations 

that give us more and more 

clues that we are not perfect.

Fred Rogers

absence of problems but 

the ability to deal with them.

Anyone who does anything 

to help a child in his life 

is a hero to me.

It exists. Learn to feel it.

Remembering How To Fly

 A   L   O   H   A  !

True friends are those 

who lift you up

when your heart's wings 

forget how to fly.


The more I stepped 

away from darkness, 

the less it felt 

like home.

Mitali Meelan

Church in a Tree

Walk tall as the trees, 

live strong as the mountains, 

be gentle as the spring winds, 

keep the warmth of the 

summer sun in your heart 

and the great spirit will always 

be with you.

Native American proverb

Bread Fruit Tree, Ulu

There is a loveliness to life 

that does not fade. . .

there is a tendency toward 

grace that does not fail us.     

Robert Goolrick

Trouble knocked 

at the door, but, 

hearing laughter, 

hurried away.

Benjamin Franklin

Powerful Gentle

 A   L   O   H   A  !

Without a rich heart, 

wealth is an ugly beggar. 

Ralph Waldo Emerson

true change of heart 

is much more powerful 

than a change of mind.

                      Kyle Bryant

The sail, 

the play of its pulse 

so like our own lives: 

so thin and yet 

so full of life, 

so noiseless when 

it labors hardest, so 

noisy and impatient 

when least effective.      

Henry David Thoreau

One word frees us
of all the weight
and pain of life:
The word is "love.

Best Way

 A   L   O   H   A  !

Every storm 

runs out of rain, 

just like every dark 

night turns into day.

     Gary Allan

After women, 

flowers are the 

most lovely thing 

God has given the world.

          Christian Dior

Greet every morning 

with open arms and

say thanks every night 

with a full heart. . .

. . . Each day is a precious gift 

to be savored and used, 

not left unopened 

and hoarded 

for a future that 

may never come.     

Regina Brett

 The best way 

 to persuade people

The More You Defend A Lie, The Angrier You Become

 Mitch Albom

A   L   O   H   A  !

Above all, don't lie to yourself. 

The man who lies to himself 

and listens to his own lie 

comes to a point that he 

cannot distinguish the 

truth within him, 

or around him, 

and so loses all respect for 

himself and for others. 

And having no respect 

he ceases to love.     

Fyodor Dostoevsky

Things come apart so easily 

when they have been held 

together with lies.     

Dorothy Allison

A lie can travel 

halfway around the world 

while the truth is 

putting on its shoes.   
Mark Twain

Every violation of truth is 

not only a sort of suicide 

in the liar, but is 

a stab at the health 

of human society.     

Ralph Waldo Emerson

A successful lie cannot 

be brought into this world

 and capriciously abandoned; 

like any committed relationship, 

it must be maintained, and 

with far more devotion 

than the truth, which carries on 

being carelessly true 

without any help.     

Lionel Shriver

Honorable Compact

 A   L   O   H   A  !

Tell me and I’ll forget.

Involve me, 

and I’ll understand.

Native American Insight

We do not want riches, 

but we do want to 

train our children right. 

Riches would do us no good. 

We could not take them 

with us to the other world. 

We do not want riches. 

We want peace and love. 

      Red Cloud, Makhpiya-luta

Everyone might act different 

from what was considered right 

did he choose to do so, but 

such acts would bring upon him 

the censure of the Nation…. 

This fear of the Nation’s censure 

acted as a mighty band, 

binding all in one social, 

honorable compact.

Tecumseh Shawnee

When you were born, 

you cried, and the 

world rejoiced. 

Live your life so that when 

you die, the world cries 

and you rejoice.


Our first teacher is 

our own heart.



Love You,
