Don't walk behind me; I may not lead. Don't walk in front of me; I may not follow. Just walk beside me and be my friend.
Albert Camus

As a single footstep will not make a path on the earth, so a single thought will not make a pathway in the mind. To make a deep physical path, we walk again and again. To make a deep mental path, we must think over and over the kind of thoughts we wish to dominate our lives.
Henry David Thoreau

No one saves us but ourselves. No one can and no one may. We ourselves must walk the path.

Just as treasures are uncovered from the earth, so virtue appears from good deeds, and wisdom appears from a pure and peaceful mind. To walk safely through the maze of human life, one needs the light of wisdom and the guidance of virtue.

For once you have tasted flight you will walk the earth with your eyes turned skywards, for there you have been and there you will long to return.
Leonardo da Vinci

As always, such good quotes. It's not easy to be human, is it?

RE: quotes 3 - 13 -13

I was thinking about Leonardo da Vinci today as I watched things from the Vatican.

Maybe we have artist that could paint as he did......BUT, do we have what it would take to furnish a place such as the ceiling of the Vatican???? I doubt it.

We would probablly have committees, and meetings, and agendas and etc, we would probably have to agree on colors and placement and whether or not to have complete nudes or just cover up some of those private parts . Could men today agree on just letting Da Vinci do what he wanted to?

Let's give thanks that there was a time when men like Da Vinci could do what they did!!!!

And thanks for the quotes.
