“365 Days of Walking the Red Road”…(by Terri Jean)

This little book is filled with “inspiring quotations…and ancient knowledge from Native American elders passed on from generation to generation for centuries, and shows you how to move positively down your personal road without fear or doubt.” Personally, I hold this book in high regard and am indeed inspired when I read the quotations Terri has included; therefore, I recommend the book enthuastically and hope you’ll get a copy for yourself. Meanwhile, I am delighted to include a few of the quotations below:

“Native American Proverb: ‘Friendship between two persons depends upon the patience of one.’ (Amen!)

“Did You Know? ‘The bald eagle, the national symbol of the United States, was first the symbol of the Iroquois Nation.’

“Cochise: ‘There is a dignity about the social intercourse of old Indians, which reminds me of a stroll through a winter forest.’

“Shawnee Saying (edited): ‘Do not wrong or hate your neighbor, for it is not…that you [are wronging them]; you [are] wronging yourself.'” (Another Amen from yours truly!)

A bit of humor from Paula Poundstone…

“I’m at my friend’s wedding in Waukegan, Illinois. If the groom goes for me instead, I’m gonna feel awful.”

Paula is one of my favorite comediennes…hope you chuckled at this one, too.

Thought for the day ( ~ Project Eve)

“While we have the gift of life, it seems to me the only tragedy is to allow part of us to die…whether it is our spirit, our creativity, or our glorious uniqueness.”

[I am blessed that mine are all still intact! I hope yours are as well...]

~ Norman Mailer, author (1923-2007)

“To blame the poor for subsisting on welfare has no justice unless we are also willing to judge every rich member of society by how productive he or she is. Taken individual by individual, it is likely that there’s more idleness and abuse of government favors among the economically privileged than among the ranks of the disadvantaged.”

Thanks, Linda Lewis, for sharing this on Facebook…it’s perfect food for thought on my blog as well.

~ Chased-by-Bears, Santee-Yanktonai Sioux, 1843-1915

“When a man does a piece of work [that] is admired by all, we say that it is wonderful; but when we see the changes of day and night, the sun, the moon, and the stars in the sky, and the changing seasons upon the earth, with their ripening fruits, anyone must [emphasis added] realize that it is the work of someone more powerful than man.”

~ The Dalai Lama

“The failure to understand emptiness and interdependence is ignorance, and as one strengthens one’s conviction about emptiness, the mind of ignorance loses its power. Through cultivating this awareness of emptiness, the ignorance that is the source of our confusion and suffering can be extinguished.”

Amen…

“Your work is not to drag the world kicking and screaming into a new awareness. Your job is to simply do your work…Sacredly, Secretly, and Silently…and those with eyes to see and ears to hear, will respond.”
