In Other Words...
Posted by Pia
Those of you at the Daily Wag know I love a great quote! Sometimes it seems the greatest wisdom is conveyed in the fewest words.
1 "Nothing will ever be attempted, if all possible objections must first be overcome." Dr. Samuel Johnson
2 "One of the oldest human needs is having someone to wonder where you are when you don't come home at night." M. Mead.
(Perhaps not just a human need...)
3 "Luck is a matter of preparation meeting opportunity." Oprah Winfrey
4 "Our doubts are traitors, and make us lose the good we oft might win, by fearing to attempt." W. Shakespeare
5 "The strength of a man's virtue should not be measured by his special exertions, but by his habitual acts." Blaise Pascal
6 "Clear your mind of can't." Dr. Samuel Johnson
7 "Simple pleasures... are the last refuge of the complex."
8 "The manner in which it is given is worth more than the gift." Pierre Corneille
9 "Anything will give up its secrets if you love it enough." George Washington Carver.
10 "I have learned to use the word impossible with greatest caution." Wernher von Braun
11 "There is no cure to birth and death, save to enjoy the interval." George Santayana
Maybe that's why I love animals so much- they don't distract us from the present with too many unnecessary words. The way in which they offer their company, provides a respite from the noise in one's own head.
I'll stop talking now... Enjoy!

In memory of Donald Ledden. As a loving father, Donald was open to his daughter Adrienne's teachings and plight to help animals in need. Donald made a difference in so many ways-not only did he raise children who know the meaning of compassion- but he also saved the life a little canine soul by the name of Zoe who became part of his family. Donald will be missed by both humans and canines alike.
