November Inspirations

This month we’ve been thinking about 3 themes: kindness, thanksgiving and legacy.  If you’re out shopping this weekend or need a break from the relatives, I thought today would be a great day to share some inspiring and encouraging quotes on our 3 themes.

“What this world needs is a new kind of army – the army of the kind.” Cleveland Amory
“Don’t be yourself – be someone a little nicer.”  Mignon McLaughlin
“Kindness is the language which the deaf can hear and the blind can see.” Mark Twain
“Wherever there is a human being, there is an opportunity for a kindness.” Seneca
“You cannot do a kindness too soon, for you never know how soon it will be too late.” Ralph Waldo Emerson

“As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them.” John Fitzgerald Kennedy
“Thanksgiving was never meant to be shut up in a single day.” Robert Caspar Lintner
“God gave you a gift of 86,400 seconds today.  Have you used one to say “thank you?”” William A. Ward
“He is a wise man who does not grieve for the things which he has not, but rejoices for those which he has.” Epictetus
“Gratitude is a quality similar to electricity: it must be produced and discharged and used up in order to exist at all.” William Faulkner

“Carve your name on hearts, not tombstones. A legacy is etched into the minds of others and the stories they share about you.” Shannon L. Alder
“Everyone must leave something behind when he dies . . . Something your hand touched some way so your soul has somewhere to go when you die . . . It doesn’t matter what you do, so long as you change something from the way it was before you touched it into something that’s like you after you take your hands away.” Ray Bradbury
“We don’t inherit the earth from our ancestors, we borrow it from our children.” David Brower
“Your story is the greatest legacy that you will leave to your friends.It’s the longest-lasting legacy you will leave to your heirs.” Steve Saint
“With a hint of good judgment, to fear nothing, not failure or suffering or even death, indicates that you value life the most. You live to the extreme; you push limits; you spend your time building legacies. Those do not die.” Criss Jami
