“If a man is called to be a street-sweeper, he should sweep streets even as Michelangelo painted, or Beethoven composed music, or Shakespeare wrote poetry. He should sweep streets so well, that all the hosts of heaven and earth will pause to say, here lived a great street sweeper who did his job well.”

– Dr Martin Luther King, Jr.

Age 7: I’ve learned that our dog doesn’t want to eat my broccoli either.

Age 9: I’ve learned that when I wave to people out in the country, they stop what they’re doing and wave back.

Age 12: I’ve learned that just when I get my room the way I like it, Mum makes me clean it up again.

Age 14: I’ve learned that if you want to cheer yourself up, you should try cheering someone else up.

Age 15: I’ve learned that, although it’s hard to admit it, I’m secretly glad my parents are strict with me.

“This is the true joy in life, the being used for a purpose (recognized by yourself as a mighty one). I want to be thoroughly used up when I die, for the harder I work, the more I live. I rejoice in life for its own sake.”

July 23, 2021

This is the true joy in life, the being used for a purpose recognized by yourself as a mighty one; the being a force of nature instead of a feverish, selfish little clod of ailments and grievances complaining that the world will not devote itself to making you happy.

I am of the opinion that my life belongs to the whole community #, and as long as I live it is my privilege to do for it whatever I can.

I want to be thoroughly used up when I die, for the harder I work, the more I live. I rejoice in life for its own sake.” #

– George Bernard Shaw , Irish playwright and Nobel Prize winner
