The following are a few of my favorite quotes that sum up my philosophy for life: They speak volumes about me personally. I love all people. Plus a few cartoon characters ;)
"Independence is my happiness, and I view things as they are, without regard to place or person; my country is the world, and my religion is to do good." Thomas Paine
"Great ideas often receive violent opposition from mediocre minds." Albert Einstein
"The world is a dangerous place. Not because of the people who are evil; but because of the people who don't do anything about it." Albert Einstein
"Peace cannot be kept by force. It can only be achieved by understanding" Albert Einstein
"What difference does it make to the dead, the orphans, and the homeless, whether the mad destruction is wrought under the name of totalitarianism or the holy name of liberty and democracy?" Gandhi
"I paint objects as I think them, not as I see them" Pablo Picasso
07/03/07 I am dismayed by what is happening in Jenna, Louisiana. Please visit this site & sign the petition to have our Civil Rights Division of the U.S. Department of Justice investigate this outrageous situation.
08/07/07 update. In a little over a month since I signed this petition (I was #661)there are now over 12,000 signatures (12,442 to be exact). Wow! If you have not visited & signed please take the time to do so, it is very important & an extremely worthy cause. Please help free the Jenna 6.
As Picasso said, "I paint objects as I think them, not as I see them." I hope to do the same :)
Update 08/25/07 Please visit my new website.
Another update :) 03/24/08 A great big hug to you all :) I recently rediscovered (something very simple, that I knew when I was 5) that a "hug" crosses all the great divides. Religious, cultural, racial, political, generational gaps, etc. It can be a very healing experience! So..... I am giving each one of you a big hug in my mind & sending positive wishes to all of you! Right now the entire world needs a huge grandmotherly hug! And as a grandmother, we can hold on just a little longer than anyone else without people becoming suspicious of our motives. So, because I'm a Nana, 5 times over, I can get away with this! :) I'm just a old, very free thinking Hippie (definitely not a Yuppie) & proud of it! LOL So, I hope you will hug someone today for me. Remember to spread those hugs around freely. We must heal this world! Remember when you were a small child & you needed a hug. For those of you who didn't get enough hugs as a child, I am holding you even tighter! Until all your tears go away! I want all the Wars ended, I want all the world to live in peace. I want us to love each other a little more each day. It's time for a Revolution, a Revolution of "Hugs". Sound too good to be true? We can make it happen if we believe we can! It's time to get some faith in humanity back! Continue Free Hugs in 2008 :) To those of you who know what I'm talking about, keep it up! For those of you who don't know what I am talking about, see this video: It's worth a million words! The start of the Revolution! :)
Here's a video that has started a Revolution :)
