You know, there is only one thing in life over which we have complete control, and that is what goes on inside our minds. When you choose to take charge of your thoughts, of the things you tell yourself, you become very powerful. Certainly, you may feel disappointment when things go wrong, but you can choose to see all the setbacks as temporary. You can choose to use them as opportunities to grow, and you’ll develop the ability to quickly bounce back when you hit an obstacle, as well as the incredible strength that comes from standing up to adversity. ~ Lou Tice

4. The World Around Us

To some extent, each of us is affected by the environment around us. But, when your happiness depends on what goes on around you, you are in trouble.

Have you ever thought about what happens when we let what goes on in our environment determine how we feel on the inside?  When things are going well, we feel good, cheerful, positive, and full of enthusiasm. But, when the least little thing goes wrong, we start to come un-glued.

If this happens, we can start feeling like a victim, and when we feel like a victim, we give up control of our lives. There are those who believe that we are victims because we have chosen to be that way. This is a harsh critique, but there may be a grain of truth in it.

Some say that if you are not having problems, you are missing an opportunity for growth. This is exactly the thing we are talking about, because you choose to take charge of how you respond and what you do, regardless of what is happening in your environment.

You know, there is only one thing in life over which we have complete control, and that is what goes on inside our minds. When you choose to take charge of your thoughts, of the things you tell yourself, you become very powerful. Certainly, you may feel disappointment when things go wrong, but you can choose to see all the setbacks as temporary. You can choose to use them as opportunities to grow, and you will develop the ability to quickly bounce back when you hit an obstacle, as well as the incredible strength that comes from standing up to adversity.

The choice really is yours to make – it has been, and will continue to be in the future. You are in charge of you, your beliefs and the decisions you make. There is great strength in that, and, when harnessed, tremendous power for good. ~The Pacific Institute


5. The English Plural According to George Carlin

The English Plural

according to

George Carlin (1937-2008) 

We’ll begin with a box, and the plural is boxes,
But the plural of ox becomes oxen, not oxes.
One fowl is a goose, but two are called geese,
Yet the plural of moose should never be meese.
You may find a lone mouse or a nest full of mice,
Yet the plural of house is houses, not hice.

If the plural of man is always called men,
Why shouldn’t the plural of pan be called pen?
If I speak of my foot and show you my feet,
And I give you a boot, would a pair be called beet?
If one is a tooth and a whole set are teeth,
Why shouldn’t the plural of booth be called beeth?

If Father is Pop, how come Mother’s not Mop?

Blood Borders: A Proposal to Redraw a “New Middle East”

I saw behind me those who had gone, and before me those who are yet to come. I looked back and saw my father and his father and all our fathers, and in front to see my son and his son, and the sons upon sons beyond. And their eyes were my eyes.  As I felt, so they had felt and were to feel, as then, as now, as tomorrow and forever. I was not afraid anymore, for I was in a long line that had no beginning and had no end. ~unattributed
