My cousin, Jeremy, and I were chatting tonight and I shared a thought-provoking quote with him. He shared another good one back and said these were good "perspective shapers." I liked that phrase and had the idea that I might periodically post some "Perspective Shapers" for your consideration.
This first quote is from Jeremy, though he claims no authorship - says he got it elsewhere. Nonetheless, I first heard it from him, so he's the one who gets the kudo's this time ;-)
"Life really has little to do with anything but perspective.
Your perspective in life shapes everything you do."
Following is the quote that started this whole new idea:
"The venerable dead ar waiting in my library
to entertain me and relieve me
from the nonsense of surviving mortals."
Samuel Davies, c1700's
And the quote Jeremy shared back:
"The graveyard is full
of indispensable men."
That's it for tonight. Stay tuned for more "Perspective Shapers" :-)
