These and Those

A L O H A From Honolulu!
The deepest sin
against the human mind is to
believe things without evidence
Thomas H Huxley,
also attributed to Aldous Huxley *

 We ourselves feel 
that what we are doing
is just a drop in the ocean.
 But the ocean would be less 
because of that missing drop.
   Mother Teresa

Today is a good day to boss up
and change your situation.
Germany Kent 

And then my heart
with pleasure fills,
And dances
with the daffodils.
   William Wordsworth

[ When daffodils
are not in view
a garden rose
will also do! 
Pixie ]

This worldly life is like a shadow.
If you try to catch it, you
will never be able to do so.
If you turn your back towards it,
it has no choice but to follow you. Ibn Qayyim Al-Jawziyya

Side-by-side Our bond can't be bought Understanding souls Share a truth dearly sought. These the irreplaceable Those we hold ever tight True friends 0ur second solace Creatures of the light. Cloudia Charters 

Love You,
Cloudia & Pixie


*Aldous Huxley was a grandson of the prominent biologist Thomas Henry Huxley and was the third child of the biographer and man of letters Leonard Huxley; his brothers included physiologist Andrew Fielding Huxley and biologist Julian Huxley.

These are awesome quotes, Cloudia. That first one jumped out at me, especially at these political times. You are a "true friend."

Rainbow Connection by the Cazimero Brothers is one of my all time favorites.

Cloudia said...

Jolly, Ladies ❤️

Such an enlightenment word of "missing drop".

Pixie craves belly rubs.

The trouble is that we are prone to believe without evidence and to be very adamant about said beliefs.

We may seem like small drops in the ocean, but God knows that each life is an opportunity to spread the Good News of Jesus.
Blessings, Cloudia, and thanks for your poem, too. :)

I like the duck in the pool. And the evidence quote has been stored away for later use! Cheers - Stewart M - Melbourne
