Materially Rich and Spiritually Poor

This nation cannot afford to be materially rich and spiritually poor. (John F. Kennedy in The Art of the Possible by Alexandra Stoddard, p. 136)

If we are always "right," we can never learn, because we are not listening to anyone but ourselves. (Suzanne Somers, 365 Ways to Change Your Life, Day 59)

...spend some time being mindful of the ways that God has been present during your life. Celebrate this. Let this sense of belovedness give you courage... (Wendy M. Wright in The Upper Room Disciplines - 2006, 28 February)

If you have taught someone how to play a certain game, then change the rules the rest of the players are entitled to know the new rules. (Dr. Phil McGraw, The Ultimate Weight Solution, p. 242)
  • The purple crocus is in bloom in Mrs. Robison's yard. This year one of them is blooming in our yard for the first time.
  • I went for a 40-minute walk in our neighborhood yesterday. It's wonderful to be out in the warm sun again. There's no doubt that March is here. Trash that people put out for pickup today was blowing all over.
  • Books were due at the library yesterday and today. I decided to take them all back yesterday. I was reading about various programs that are available on the Internet. I didn't read every word in all the books. On the "new" book shelf I found a book I want to read by Melody Beattie, "The New Codependency." I arrived at the library about 3:00 p.m. Ever computer in the place was in use.
