Words to Live by

My father was a man of integrity. He was  man of the handshake era where once a deal was struck both parties loved forward in trust. He was loyal to a fault, trustworthy, honest and always told the truth-even if it hurt your feelings.I noted these values long ago and they are words to live by;

Wisdom...I try to listen to those who have more life experiences. The elderly have wisdom in spades.

The only true wisdom is in knowing you know nothing-Socrates


Truth…The only way to live in my opinion.

3 things cannot long be hidden; the sun, the moon and the truth-Buddha


Joy…I seek this out every day and look for it in the simplest of places.

Happiness lies in the joy of achievement and the thrill of creative effort-Franklin D. Roosevelt



Faith: The foundation my father gave me. It has helped me out immeasurably in the past five years.

I am the Way, the truth and the Life. No one comes to the Father except through me-Jesus Christ

Hope:The reason to get out of bed each day.

Hope is being able to see that there is light despite all of the darkness.-Desmond Tutu

Love: The only thing that matters in the end.

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



Which words do you live by?
