A few of my favorite quotes.

I believe that when combined the following quotes make a great philosophy of life.

I Thessalonians 4: 11,12 (KJV) "And that ye study to be quiet, and to do your own business, and to work with your own hands, as we command you; That ye may walk honestly toward them that are without, and [that] ye may have lack of nothing."

"To live content with small means ; to seek elegance rather than luxury, and refinement rather than fashion ; to be worthy, not respectable, and wealthy, not, rich: to listen to stars and birds,babes and sages, with open heart; to study hard; to think quietly, act frankly, talk, gently, await occasions, hurry never; in a word, to let the spiritual, unbidden and unconscious, grow up through the common ... this is my symphony."
William Henry Channing

Remember the three R's : Respect for self, Respect for others : and Responsibility for all your actions.
(Not certain of the source.)

Have a blessed week!
