Thoughts for Tuesday
Reading, after a certain age, diverts the mind too much from its creative pursuits. Any man who reads too much and uses his own brain too little falls into lazy habits of thinking.-- Albert Einstein (now there's kind of a depressing throught for a bookworm....)

A dark night. A storm at sea. A ship goes down. A lone survivor is washed ashore on a deserted island.
The years pass, the man's prayers for rescue go unanswered as he struggles to survive. He builds a small hut to protect himself from the elements and to store his meager belongings. One night, lightning strikes the hut and it burns to the ground. In despair the man screams at God, "Haven't I suffered enough? Now you take what little I have!" The next day a ship lands on the island. "How did you know I was here?" the man asks in disbelief. "We saw your signal fire," the Captain replies. (Be open to possibilities.)

If you haven't found something strange during the day, it hasn't been much of a day. -- John A. Wheeler (Thank goodness, this is not something I have to worry about.)

What other dungeon is so dark as one's own heart! What jailer so inexorable as one's self! -- Nathaniel Hawthorne (Gives another meaning to "heart of darkness.")

We all have the extraordinary coded within us, waiting to be released.-- Jean Houston
