Reading: 'A Whale for the Killing" by Farley Mowat. In this book about a humpback whale, Mowat describes touching one of these precious animals in the water. Mowat writes "His skin was so warm." I swam in the middle of a pod of humpbacks off the north shore of Bermuda. I touched a humpback mother and her calf. It was a moment of enlightenment, a moment of knowing that we are all connected WHEN I touched the warm skin of these animals.

Quotation "Holding on to anger is like drinking poison and expecting the person with whom you are angry to die." Buddha

"These temple-destroyers, devotees of ravaging commercialism, seem to have a perfect contempt for Nature, and instead of lifting their eyes to the God of the mountains, lift them to the Almighty Dollar. Dam Hetch Hetchy! As well dam for water-tanks the people's cathedrals and churches, for no holier temple has ever been consecrated by the heart of man.
~ John Muir, The Yosemite (1912)

"All other animals except the human, acquire things because of need. Humans only are motivated by greed." Farley Mowat

"Dreams do come true. Without that possibility nature would not cause us to have them." John Updike

"Slow down and enjoy life." Eddie Cantor

'It's far too easy to look at a place like Uganda and
think that their laws or societal dealings don't affect
you. It's just as easy to look at Arizona's proposed
legislation and think that it's not that serious because
it will only impact a minority in one particular state.
But it's precisely when the rights of minorities or the
disenfranchised are at risk that we must be the most
vocal. We cannot only speak out on our own personal
issues, or pick and choose which rights we want to fight
for. Nobody is protected until we are all protected
equally under the law. Just as I'm not silent about
justice for Trayvon Martin or Jordan Davis, I will not
be silent about this. It's not about your particular
quest for civil rights; it's about fairness and equality
for all human beings. Period.'

Rev. Al Sharpton

"Logic will take you from A to Z. Imagination will take you everywhere else." Albert Einstein

"Learn to be silent, Let your quiet mind, listen and absorb." Pythagoras

"Do not believe what you have heard
Do not believe in tradition
Do not believe in anything spoken of many times
Do not believe in written statements
Do not believe in conjecture
Do not believe in authority, teachers, or elders.
But after careful observation and analysis, when it agrees with reason and it will benefit one and all, then accept it and live by it." Buddha
