Friendship Quotes

Dragonfly

“In the End, we will remember not the words of our enemies, but the silence of our friends.”

Martin Luther King, Jr.


“Love your enemies just in case your friends turn out to be bastards.”


“Some people have a large circle of friends while others have only friends that they like”


“Friendship is like a glass ornament, once it is broken it can rarely be put back together exactly the same way.”


Friendship is held to be the severest test of character. It is easy, we think, to be loyal to a family and clan, whose blood is in your own veins. Love between a man and a woman is founded on the mating instinct and is not free from desire and self-seeking. But to have a friend and to be true under any and all trials is the mark of a man! (*or woman!)
Charles Alexander Eastman


“You never really know your friends from your enemies until the ice breaks”

Eskimo Proverb

About Me Retired (aka unemployed) vegan, pagan, happily married mother of two grown sons. Working to create a sustainable lifestyle in rural AZ. We are building our own home (straw bale), and living as lightly on the land as possible. Rainwater harvesting, and solar power are two of our tools. As vegans ... we can also grow a lot of our own food. Wish us luck!

Wild Fact About Me Born in South Africa - so I also speak (some would say mangle) Afrikaans ... but it wasn't on the list.
My Philosophy Live lightly on the land, harm nothing.
What Gives Me Hope More and more people are adopting a plant-based lifestyle
If I were Mayor, I'd make the world a better place by Encourage everyone to go vegan - compassion for the least among us engenders compassion for all.
What/who changed my life and why The book/person that changed my life is "May All Be Fed: Diet for a New World" by John Robbins because it opened my eyes to the cruelty of factory farming and the basic sense of a vegan diet. A vegan diet fits well with the Wiccan crede ... "An it harm none, do as you will"
What Bugs Me hypocrisy, People whom do harm unto others, George Bush, People claiming friendship that are not!  
Passions LIFE!!!, nature, MY CHILDREN!!!, my husband  
Inspirations love  
What Scares Me Religious Extremism, current USA administration  
  Favorites
Role Models Howard Lyman, John Robbins, T. Colin Campbell, John McDougall MD  
Quotation "I make myself rich by making my wants few."
-Henry David Thoreau

"I used to think that life was unfair. Then I thought, wouldn't it be much worse, if life were fair, and all the terrible things that happen to us come because we actually deserve them? So, now I take great comfort in the general hostility and unfairness of the universe." Marcus "Babylon 5"

    "I think over again my small adventures
    My fears, those small ones that seemed so big
    For all the vital things I had to get and reach
    And yet there is only one great thing
    The only thing
    To live to see the great day that dawns
    And the light that fills the world."


    - Unknown Inuit -

     

     ... another monday, a new week.

    "We must protect the forests
    for our children, grandchildren and
     children yet to be born.
    We must protect the forests for those
     who can't speak for themselves
    such as the birds, animals, fish and trees."

    "The Beautiful Earth"

    The glitening sun is shining
    On the sparkling water,
    The sparkling water is connecting
    To the blue endless ocean
    That is great and is as beautiful
    As a bachelor button flower,
    So simple and perfect 
    Blue and red
    Like the sunset sky
    The glorious sunset
    That brings peace
    For me, for you, for all
    That brings peace to Mother Earth!



    ... I wish you a weekend
    full of peace my sweet friend
    With Love

    "If you have only two pennies
     left in the world,with the first penny
     you should buy rice to feed your family.
     With the second penny,
    say the wise Japanese,
    you should buy a lily.
    The Japanese understand the importance
    of dreaming..."

    Kindness to Animals

    Little children, never give
    Pain to things that feel and live
    Let the gentle robin come
    For the crumbs you save at home
    As his meat you throw along
    He’ll repay you with a song.
    Never hurt the timid hare
    Peeping from her green grass lair
    Let her come and sport and play
    On the lawn at close of day.
    The little lark goes soaring high
    To the bright windows of the sky
    Singing as if t'were always spring
    And fluttering on an untired wing
    Oh! Let him sing his happy song
    Nor do these gentle creatures wrong.



    ... and a blessed week sweet friend
    With Love
    Ana

    The glistening sun is shining
    On the sparkling water,
    The sparkling water is
    connecting
    To the pretty ocean,
    The pretty ocean
    is as beautiful
    As a bachelor button flower,
    The bachelor
    button flower is
    yellow and blue
    Like the sunset sky,
    The sunset sky is giving
    peace to the Earth!

    Human Energy

    When I give light
    I also receive,
    When I smile
    I give light to others,
    they give light to me.
    It is with the light
    all of us give, all,
    that we are free.

    Hugh Brown, gr 4, Red Wing, MN





    ... I wish you my friend a weekend full of light
    With Love
