A L O H A From Honolulu!

In a time of deceit,
telling the truth is 
a revolutionary act.
            George Orwell

We must have the stubbornness
to accept our gladness in
the ruthless furnace
of this world.
   Jack Gilbert

Angry people do not
make smart choices.
Neutralize their damage
by being different
than they are.

May brooks and trees
and singing hills
 join in the chorus too,
and every gentle
wind that blows
 send happiness to you.
    Irish Blessings

Beginning today

treat everyone you meet
as if they will be dead by midnight.
Extend them all the care,
kindness, and understanding
you can muster.
Your life will never
be the same again.
    Og Mandino

 Never be haughty to the humble
or humble to the haughty.
Jefferson Davis

Singing in the rain
just singing in the rain,
what a glorious feeling,
I'm happy again.
  Arthur Freed

I’m rather liking the Jefferson quote. :-)

Pixie is telling the truth about the dog singing in the rain: he is off-key and it hurts her ears. Today's quotes are all glorious!

Angry people definitely often do not make smart choices. Which is another reason to avoid anger where possible.
