Just A Drop

A L O H A From Honolulu!

We know only too well that
what we are doing is nothing
more than a drop in the ocean.
But if the drop were not there,
the ocean would be
missing something.
One drop of wine is enough to
redeem a whole glass of water.
Mother Teresa

Nothing causes more
consternation in a group
of hypocrites than
one honest person.

In the beginner's mind
there are many possibilities,
but in the expert's there are few. Shunryu Suzuki

Discouragement is like a
scorpion in your shoe;
it takes courage to toss it out
so you can move on.
Richelle E. Goodrich

People deal too much with
the negative, with what is wrong.
Why not try and see positive
things, to just touch those
things and make them bloom?
Thich Nhat Hanh


Love You,
Pixie & Cloudia

Einstein hit the nail on the head with that one.

Love the lion dance. And this quote "Nothing causes more
consternation in a group
of hypocrites than
one honest person.
Einstein" makes my day

Love the flowers and your cute Pixie.
The Dragon and Lion dance is wonderful.
Take care, have a happy day!

What a cute doggie, but not quite as cute as Pixie.

These are all wonderful quotes, Cloudia. Happy Wednesday! And happy new year!

Teresa said...

Great quotes and pics today. I love the face with the eyes and leaf mouth. Pixie looks ready to join the International Lion and Dragon Dance extravaganza. I loved the "baby lion" at the beginning. The woman trying to get all the lions to line up for the picture at the end really was "herding cats." You made my day today.

You show some really nice quotations. I understand the “discouragement” quote. When I get back to my house in Georgia and see how much more I have to clear out, I get pretty discouraged and wonder when shall I ever be finished.
I see you are in Honolulu – I thought you had moved? Maybe it was just temporary. Stay well, friend, wherever you are.
