Philosophers & Cats

A L O H A From Honolulu!

The greatness of a person
is measured by the way
they treat the little guy.
Compassion for the weak
is a sign of greatness. 
   Myles Munroe

The sign of intelligent people
is their ability to control
their emotions by the
application of reason. 
      Marya Mannes 

The need to be right
is the sign of a
vulgar mind. 
     Albert Camus

I have studied many philosophers
and many cats. The
wisdom of cats is
infinitely superior. 
    Hippolyte Taine

A Little Life

A L O H A From Honolulu!
Marin Calif

Each day is a little life: every waking and rising
a little birth, every fresh morning a little youth . . . Schopenhauer

Is the spring coming?" he said.
"What is it like?"...
It is the sun shining on the rain
and the rain falling on the sunshine.
   Frances Hodgson Burnett*

A misty morning does not signify a cloudy day. Ancient Proverb

Grandmother used to say: "If everyone in the neighborhood put all their problems
on the front porch we'd all be glad to go home with our own."


Love You Friend,
Pixie & Cloudia

Wonderfully Imperfect

A L O H A From Honolulu!
Success is following 
the pattern of life 
one enjoys most.
           Al Capp

Life doesn’t have to be 
perfect to be wonderful.
        Annette Funicello

If we opened our minds to enjoyment, we might find tranquil pleasures spread about us on every side. We might live with the angels that visit us on every sunbeam, and sit with the fairies who wait on every flower. Samuel Smiles

Happiness can grow 
from only a 
little contentment.
          Pygmy Proverb

Celebrate What You WANT to See

A L O H A From Honolulu!

Celebrate what you want to see more of. Tom Peters

I arise in the morning
 torn between a desire
 to improve the world 
and a desire to 
enjoy the world. 
This makes it hard 
to plan the day. 
   E. B. White 

The day you were born was the day that God decided that the world could not exist without you. Rabbi Nachman

Room For Everything

A L O H A From Honolulu!

There is no pessimism in the wild. 

Paul Winter

Lotus Queen Lily

 If you don't believe
 that the world has a
 then you won't hear it 
    Charles de Lint

       Waioli kitchen and bake shop *

 Nature was here
 a series of wonders, and
a fund of delight. 
  Daniel Boone

Walking along
I looked,
then looked again:
a tiny face
was looking back.
The world is full
of friends
if we only
notice them.

In a full heart there is room
for everything.

Our Passions Ourselves

A L O H A From Honolulu!

Look at life through
the windshield, not
the rear-view mirror.
Byrd Baggett

On the mountains of truth
you can never climb in vain:
either you will reach a point
higher up today, or you will
be training your powers so that
you will be able to
climb higher tomorrow.
  Friedrich Nietzsche

Through intentionally slowing down
our pace; simplifying calendars,
closets, and commitments;
letting go in order to have
fulfilling, connective enough-ness,
we open more space.
Dr. Erlene Grise-Owens

How we behave toward cats here below determines our status in heaven.
Robert A. Heinlein

A L O H A From Honolulu!

Everywhere across
whatever sorrows of
which our life is woven,
some radiant joy will
gaily flash past.
Nikolai Gogol

You're not in this life for
things to go well.
You're in this life to be
your deepest heart in all
that goes well and in
all that doesn't. John de Ruiter

Everyone has an invisible sign
hanging from their neck saying,
'Make me feel important.'
Never forget this...
    Mary Kay Ash

Wit is the appearance, the
external flash of imagination.
Thus its divinity, and the
witty character of mysticism.
Karl Wilhelm Friedrich Schlegel

Mirth is like
a flash of lightning,
that breaks through
a gloom of clouds,
and glitters for a moment;
cheerfulness keeps up a kind
of daylight in the mind, and
fills it with a steady and
perpetual serenity.
  Joseph Addison

Politeness is the art
of choosing among
your thoughts.
 Madame De Stael

Rainbow Season

A L O H A From Honolulu!

Rainbows are the perfect combination of light, water droplets, and

Ipomoea obscura leaf
the obscure morning glory
emerging through monstera

Carry so much love in your heart that there's no room left for hatred. Rithvik Singh

Fill with mingled cream and amber,
I will drain that glass again.
Such hilarious visions clamber
Through the chamber of my brain —
Quaintest thoughts — queerest fancies
Come to life and fade away;
What care I how time advances?
I am drinking ale today.
   Edgar Allan Poe

There are two means
of refuge from the
misery of life - music
and cats.
Albert Einstein

Love You,
