Quote of the Day

“I have three precious things which I hold fast and prize. The first is gentleness; the second is frugality; the third is humility, which keeps me from putting myself before others. Be gentle and you can be bold; be frugal and you can be liberal; avoid putting yourself before others and you can become a leader among men.”

Lao Tzu

    I like that and try to follow it. Others will have to tell you the degree of my success in living up to those values.

    Great quote…As Auntie BS says, I also try to live by those words. At the same time, I don’t generally acknowledge those that find me terribly unlikeable because the flaw is usually theirs. It keeps me far more balanced if I don’t worry overmuch so long as I am true to my Christian values.
