7 Chilling Quotes
For a change of pace this is not a blog about babies or pregnant women or moms or dads. It is just a short one, with 7 chilling quotes to ponder as 2017 gets underway.
Here are those quotes
1: Two possibilities exist: Either we are alone in the universe or we are not. Both are equally terrifying. Arthur C. Clark
2: Only when the last tree has died and the last river has been poisoned and the last fish has been caught will we realise we cannot eat money. Indian Proverb
3: Don’t let schooling interfere with your education. Mark Twain
4: It is no measure of health to be well-adjusted to a sick society. Jiddu Krisnamurti
5: Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle. Plato
6: Some cause happiness wherever they go, others whenever they go. Oscar Wilde
7: I fear not the man who has practised 10,000 kicks, but I do fear the man who has practised one kick 10,000 times. Bruce Lee
For me, #4 of the above quotes really gave me pause for thought. We should all guard against becoming so immune to the violence, poverty and corruption that is part of our present day society, that we forget to fight against them. These are things that each and everyone of us in our own small way can fight against. We live in a beautiful country and we should want to make it a better place for our children to grow up in. We can teach our children that violence does not solve problems, that corruption is to be fought and that poverty is something we should all be urging the government to eradicate.
Till next week, I leave you to ponder these quotes – maybe one will grab you as #4 did me. Let me know which one in the comments box below!!!
