I am so delighted to find a band of folks who love notable quotations as much as I do. Here goes with the second installment. Again, many thanks to serenasinclair, Lulu, and Fluffy Girl for nominating me for this encouraging and thought provoking challenge.
Just thought a little humor would be a fun way to start us off today!
The trouble with being punctual is that nobody’s there to appreciate it.
– Franklin P. Jones
This is one of my all time favorite poems. Every little act of kindness is worth it. It is all the small moments that add up to make the sum total of our lives.
If I can stop one heart from breaking,
I shall not live in vain;
If I can ease one life the aching,
Or cool one pain,
Or help one fainting robin
Unto his nest again,
I shall not live in vain.-Emily Dickinson
The Gospel TrumpetHark! how the gospel trumpet sounds,
Through all the world the echo bounds,
And Jesus by redeeming blood
Is bringing sinners home to God,
And guides him safely by his word
To endless day.Thy blood dear Jesus, once was spilt,
To save our souls from sin and guilt;
And sinners now may come to God,
And find salvation through Thy blood,
And sail by faith upon that flood,
To endless day.-An Old American Hymn
Lastly, just for fun, here is a bit from Saint-Saens, Carnival of the Animals, to tie in the elephant photo in the header.
