Happy Monday my friends,
We all have heard or even professed “Treat others as you would have them treat you.” This will be our focus in today’s letter of inspiration and self-improvement.
“Goodness is easier to recognize than to define.” (W.H. Auden)
We know people who appear to fit definitions of the word good, and yet we don’t really like them all that much.We also know people who don’t exhibit conventional notions of goodness, but we sense their warmth and generosity from the moment we meet them. We know that they are truly good. Goodness is an inner quality we sense in others—and want to have in ourselves.
NOTE TO SELF:
I try to be good, to myself and to others. I take as my model people I sense to be truly good. (Linda Picone)
It’s not what you look at that matters, it’s what you see. (Henry David Thoreau)
We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit. (Aristotle)
It is wisdom to know others; It is enlightenment to know one’s self. (Lao Tzu)
Wishing everyone a wonderful week,
