“The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil 

is for good men to do nothing”
-Edmund Burke


A Quote by Johnny Carson


"Never continue in a job you don't enjoy.

If you're happy in what you're doing,

you'll like yourself, you'll have inner peace.

And if you have that, along with physical health,

you will have had more success than you

 could possibly have imagined."

Johnny Carson

Talk Show Host and Entertainer



We recently said good-bye to a great

entertainer.  There is a lot to be said for Johnny's quote

because it is a wonderful thing to have a job that you enjoy.

However, many people go through life working at things that

feed the family but not necessarily what they love to do.

Johnny happened to be one of the fortunate people who

seemed to love his work and he was very good at it too.

Yet, inner peace is never found in a job.  It is good to have

a job that you love but I have never heard of anyone on

their deathbed saying, "I wish I'd spent more time at the office."

I always find myself wondering about people like Johnny  and

if they knew the Lord.  If, perhaps, they found true inner peace

before they died.  I hope so because I'd like to think

that perhaps the gates of heaven would open

and St. Peter would say, "Here's Johnny!"

When we get tangled up 

in our problems, be still;
 God wants us to be still 

so He can untangle the knot



Measuring a Life 


My deeds will be measured not by my youthful appearance, but by the concern lines on 

my forehead, the laugh lines around my mouth, 
And the chins from seeing what can be done 
For those smaller than me or who have fallen. 
~Erma Bombeck~


"It is love, not reason, that is stronger than death."
Thomas Mann


"If, out of time, I could pick one moment and keep it
shining, always new, of all the days that I have lived, I'd
pick the moment I met you."

"God never loved me in so sweet a way before.
'Tis He alone who can such blessings send.
And when His love would new expressions find,
He brought thee to me and He said--"Behold a friend"
-- Unknown

"Never shall I forget the days
which I spent with you...
Continue to be my friend,
as you will always find me yours"
---Ludwig van Beethoven


"'Twas not into my ears you whispered, but into my heart.
'Twas not my lips you kissed, but my soul"
Judy Garland


"May I never miss a sunset or a rainbow
because I am looking down."



"Love is when you look into someone's eyes and suddenly you go all the way inside their soul
and you both know it."


All I want is to know the thoughts of God.
Everything else is details.
-- Albert Einstein

Man's love is of man's life a thing apart;
'Tis woman's whole existence.
~~ Lord Byron

" If all you have is a hammer,
every problem begins to look like a nail."



"If nature has made you a giver,
your hands are born open, and so is your heart.
And though there may be times when your 

hands are empty, your heart is always full, 

and you can give things out of that."
Frances Hodgson Burnett

For every minute you are angry
you just lost 60 seconds of happiness
