Friends, 

We can always learn from others. Here are some opportunities: 

"In Christ we see an image of God who is not armed with lightning bolts, but with a basin and towel, who spews not threats but good news for all." 

"Justice will be served until those who are unaffected are as outraged as those who are." Ben Franklin 

"People do not like to think. If one thinks, one must reach conclusions. Conclusions are not always pleasant." Helen Keller 

"If you want to walk on water, you've got to get out of the boat." 

"Love has nothing to do with what you are looking at, and everything to do with who is looking." 

"You can judge your age by the amount of pain you feel when you come in contact with a new idea." 

"Rather than live on in the hearts and minds of my fellow man, I'd prefer to live on in my apartment." Woody Allen 

"Son, there are two ways to go through life, as a thermometer or as a thermostat. Don't be a thermometer just reflecting what's around you, going up and down with your surroundings. Be a thermostat and set the temperature." Gary Booker (Cory Booker's father) 

"Words can sting like anything, but silence breaks the heart." 

"God is an experience of translucent otherness and holiness. Theism, the Bible and creeds are an attempt to explain the experience." 

"An optimist may see the light where there is none, but why must the pessimist always run to blow it out." 

"Great minds discuss ideas, average minds discuss events, small minds discuss people." 

"Talent is like the marksman who hits a target which others cannot reach; genius is like a marksman who hits a target others cannot see." Arthur Schoupen 

"Great Spirits have always encountered violent opposition from mediocre minds." Einstein 

"If you want to go fast, go alone; but if you want to go far, go together." African proverb 

"That only which we have within can we see without. If we meet no Gods, it is because we harbor none. If there is a grandeur in you, you will find grandeur in porters and sweeps." Ralph Waldo Emerson 

"Forgiveness is a lot less exhausting than resentment. You only have to forgive once. To resent, you have to do it all day, every day." 

"God isn't a boys' name!" 

Enjoy Life! 
Fr. Coyne
