Cautious, careful people, always casting about to preserve

their reputation and social standing, never can bring about a reform.

Those who are really in earnest must be

willing to be anything or nothing in the world’s estimation.

Susan B. Anthony, reformer and suffragist (1820-1906)

My grandmother started walking five miles a day when she was sixty. She’s ninety-seven now, and we don’t know where the hell she is.

Junk Mail B Gone!

Filed under: environmental ideas,helpful hints — Honilima @ 7:57 am

Take a moment today to think about the last walk you had in a shaded forest on a hot day or the forest canopy on a rainy day when you stayed dry. Now think about how full your recycle bin can be and what comes in your mailbox each day or week.

Here are things that you can do to stop some of the junk mail, additionally you can send back the address pages from the mail you do not want to get. It takes vigilance but you will feel so much better once you aren’t contributing as much to environmental degradation.

Rid your mailbox of unwanted catalogs

Get off the junk mail lists including getting off the credit card offer lists

Wise Words about Money

Filed under: Word Related — Honilima @ 12:44 am

For money you can have everything it is said. No, that is not true. You can buy food, but not appetite; medicine, but not health; soft beds, but not sleep; knowledge but not intelligence; glitter, but not comfort; fun, but not pleasure; acquaintances, but not friendship; servants, but not faithfulness; grey hair, but not honor; quiet days, but not peace. The shell of all things you can get for money. But not the kernel. That cannot be had for money.

Arne Garborg, writer (1851-1924)
