The Power of Memories

Some memories are unforgettable, remaining ever vivid and heartwarming.  – Joseph B Wirthlin 

The most beautiful things are not associated with money; they are memories and moments.  If you don’t celebrate those, they can pass you by.  – Alek Wek

Memories of our lives, of our works, and our deeds will continue in others.  – Rosa Parks

Don’t Hate

Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that.  Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.  – Martin Luther King, Jr.

I have decided to stick with love.  Hate is too great a burden to bear.  –  Martin Luther King, Jr.

I shall allow no man to belittle my soul by making me hate him.  – Booker T. Washington

Zombie Coloring Art Project

As movie monsters go, zombies are the most human.  They were human at one time.  So we are confronted with ourselves in a way, which is much more frightening and disturbing.  (George Romero)

My stories are about humans and how they react, or fail to react, or react stupidly.  I’m pointing the finger at us, not at the zombies.  I try to respect and sympathize with the zombies as much as possible.   (George Romero)

Pain and Life

To truly laugh, you must be able to take your pain and play with it.  (Charlie Chaplin) 

Find a place inside where there’s joy, and the joy will burn out the pain.  (Joseph Campbell)

Bad things do happen; how I respond to them defines my character and the quality of my life.  I can choose to sit in perpetual sadness, immobilized by the gravity of my loss, or I can choose to rise from the pain and treasure the most precious gift I have — life itself.  (Walter Anderson)
