What you hear is an opinion not a fact.
What you see is a perspective not the truth.

It's very nice to be important, and equally important to be nice.

Here's a good quote by "Living Well" about this section's bi-polar moderator, "UA," who started this quote thread:

"Gee you are a fantastic, committed mod UA. We are so lucky to have you!!!! xo"

Thanks for coming up with the idea of a quote thread, UA, which will send me scurrying for some of my favorite quotes.

For all you do, these quotes are for you:


-- Falling down is how we grow. Staying down is how we die.
--Brian Vaszily

  The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago. The second best time is now. –Chinese Proverb

"Security is mostly a superstition. It does not exist in nature, nor do the children of men as a whole experience it. Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright exposure. Life is either a daring adventure, or nothing. "
~ Helen Keller

I just thought of another quote that I’d never given much credence to, until now.

Well, yeah, now it’s…it’s one of my favorites.

Well, yeah, it goes like this:

“To error is human, to forgive devine.”

(or, A Hundred Yellow Ribbons)

"Tie A Yellow Ribbon"

I'm comin' home, I've done my time
Now I've got to know what is and isn't mine
If you received my letter telling you I'd soon be free
Then you'll know just what to do
If you still want me, if you still want me

Whoa, tie a yellow ribbon round the ole oak tree
It's been three long years, do you still want me?
If I don't see a ribbon round the ole oak tree
I'll stay on the bus, forget about us, put the blame on me
If I don't see a yellow ribbon round the ole oak tree

Bus driver, please look for me
'Cause I couldn't bear to see what I might see
I'm really still in prison and my love, she holds the key
A simple yellow ribbon's what I need to set me free
And I wrote and told her please

Whoa, tie a yellow ribbon round the ole oak tree
It's been three long years, do you still want me?
If I don't see a ribbon round the ole oak tree
I'll stay on the bus, forget about us, put the blame on me
If I don't see a yellow ribbon round the ole oak tree

Now the whole dern bus is cheerin'
And I can't believe I see

A hundred yellow ribbons round the ole oak tree
I'm comin' home

Glad you liked the song.

You've probably never heard the song, but it's a wonderful song, and a wonderful message.

I was going to suggest you listen to the tune and the words together, in case you hadn't heard it. Just seeing the words, doesn't do it.

Does YouTube give you the words and the tune?

Have you ever heard the song before? It was very popular during about the 80's or so, and I can't imagine how some people haven't heard it.

So, I'm glad you heard the tune on YouTube, if that's what that is.

Here's is not a quote, but an inspirational story:

(below from www.inspirational-short-stories.com)

In WW1 an English soldier watched in horror how his lifelong friend fell under gunfire. All the soldiers had to retreat. The soldier went to ask permission from the lieutenant to go and fetch his friend from the no-mans-land.

The lieutenant gave permission, but added: "It is hardly worth it.

Your friend is probably dead and you may die too."

The soldier did not care about the warnings and miraculously he did reach his friend, lifted him to his shoulders and stumbled back. He was wounded in the process.

The lieutenant helped them to safety and noticed the soldier´s friend was dead.

"I am sorry for your friend - but I told you it was not worth it. Your friend is dead and now you are also seriously wounded."

"I have to disagree with you. It was worth it", the soldier answered.

"What ever do you mean?" the lieutenant wondered.

"It was worth it", the soldier repeated. "When I got to my friend, he was still alive and said ´Jim, I knew you would never leave me.´ "
________________________________________

There is a saying that friendship is one soul dwelling in two bodies.

And true friendship indeed is like that. A friends knows your good and weak points, has the courage to point out to you even painful things you need to see, and is willing to share in your joys and sorrows. They brighten up your day by their mere existence.

Friends are like flowers in the garden of life.

Here's another inspirational story:

A Dish of Ice Cream

In the days when an ice cream sundae cost much less, a 10 year old boy entered a hotel coffee shop and sat at a table. A waitress put a glass of water in front of him.

“How much is an ice cream sundae?”

“50 cents,” replied the waitress.

The little boy pulled his hand out of his pocket and studied a number of coins in it.

“How much is a dish of plain ice cream?” he inquired. Some people were now waiting for a table and the waitress was a bit impatient.

“35 cents,” she said brusquely.

The little boy again counted the coins. “I’ll have the plain ice cream,” he said.

The waitress brought the ice cream, put the bill on the table and walked away. The boy finished the ice cream, paid the cashier and departed.

When the waitress came back, she began wiping down the table and then swallowed hard at what she saw.

There, placed neatly beside the empty dish, were 15 cents – her tip.

Wow... This is very touching...
Inspirational but very touching to know that the little boy thought of the waitress and not only about himself and the ice-cream.

Thanks for sharing Tim.

Here's a song similar to 'Yellow Ribbon"

It can also be listened to on YouTube. I think the name of it could be "Honey" or "Honey, I Miss You" sung by Bobby Goldsboro.
----------------

This song was written by Bobby Russell, who got the idea for the song when he noticed how much a tree in his front yard had grown in four years. It sold 1 million in 3 weeks and 5 million in 1968 when it was released.

* * *

See the tree, how big it's grown but friend it hasn't been too long it wasn't big
I laughed at her and she got mad, the first day that she planted, it, was just a twig

Then the first snow came and she ran out to brush the snow away
So it wouldn't die
Came runnin' in all excited, slipped and almost hurt herself
And I laughed till I cried

She was always young at heart, kinda dumb and kinda smart and I loved her so
And I surprised her with a puppy
Kept me up all Christmas Eve two years ago

And it would sure embarrass her
When I came in from workin' late 'cause I would know
That she'd been sittin' there and cryin'
Over some sad and silly late, late show

And honey, I miss you and I'm bein' good
And I'd love to be with you if only I could

She wrecked the car and she was sad
And so afraid that I'd be mad but what the heck
Though I pretended hard to be
Guess you could say she saw through me and hugged my neck

came home unexpectedly and caught her cryin' needlessly
In the middle of a day
And it was in the early Spring when flowers bloom and robins sing
She went away

And honey, I miss you and I'm bein' good
And I'd love to be with you if only I could

One day while I was not at home while she was there and all alone
The angels came
Now all I have is memories of Honey and I wake up nights and call her name

Now my life's an empty stage where Honey lived and Honey played
And love grew up
And a small cloud passes overhead and cries down on the flower bed
That Honey loved

And see the tree how big it's grown but friend it hasn't been too long it wasn't big
And I laughed at her and she got mad
The first day that she planted it, was just a twig

Glad to hear you liked the “Honey" song and found it calming.

I got a sense of clam myself, but then that’s just me. I always get a sense of clam at times like this. Sentimental, I guess.

Here’s a song I heard just a few nights ago on “Oldies But Goldies” music being sold on an educational TV channel.

I just caught the last couple of lines of the song before it went on to another favorite, but I remember it from many years ago.

It came out in 1964, you know, the year Abe Lincoln was elected presdent of the United States. A very important time in American history. Thank you.

During that time, folk music was very popular and this kinda fits into that genra, if I know what a genra is and I hope I’m not insulting anybody. I didn’t mean to.

I don’t want to fit something into somebody’s genra that doesn’t belong. I think that s about the worst thing you can do, especially early in the morning. I’m really offended by that.

The other songs I sent you are kinda motivational or sentimental.

This one this one doesn’t fit into those categories. As far as I know, it has no socially redeeming value.

So, from the moment I heard it, why did I pick this one to send to you? Well, you know, maybe because its,

Pretty.

YouTube:

1. A Summer Song
Chad & Jeremy (1964)

Trees swayin' in the summer breeze
Showin' off their silver leaves
As we walked by

Soft kisses on a summer's day
Laughing all our cares away
Just you and I

Sweet sleepy warmth of summer nights
Gazing at the distant lights
In the starry sky

They say that all good things must end some day
Autumn leaves must fall

But don't you know that it hurts me so
To say goodbye to you
Wish you didn't have to go
No no no no

And when the rain
Beats against my window pane
I'll think of summer days again
And dream of you

They say that all good things must end some day
Autumn leaves must fall

But don't you know that it hurts me so
To say goodbye to you
Wish you didn't have to go
No no no no

And when the rain
Beats against my window pane
I'll think of summer days again
And dream of you
And dream of you

Ohhh yes I did.
It was very nice, soft and melodious. It sounded like something from the 80's though. For a 1964 song, I did not expect it to sound so good. Lol
I enjoyed it. I listened to it one night while pulling some reports for work. I kept re-playing it until I was finished.

Here is an inspirational verse.

----------------

Smile

She smiled at a sorrowful stranger.
The smile seemed to make him feel better.
He remembered past kindness of a friend
And wrote him a thank you letter.

The friend was so pleased with the thank-you
That he left a large tip after lunch.
The waitress, surprised by the size of the tip,
Bet the whole thing on a hunch.

The next day she picked up her winnings,
And gave part to a man on the street.
The man on the street was grateful;
For two days he'd had nothing to eat.

After he finished his dinner,
He left for his small dingy room.
(he didn't know at that moment
that he might be facing his doom)

On the way he picked up a shivering puppy
And took him home to get warm.
The puppy was very grateful
To be in out of the storm.

That night the house caught on fire
The puppy barked the alarm.
He barked till he woke the whole household
And saved everybody from harm.

One of the boys that he rescued
Grew up to be President.
All this because of a simple smile
That hadn't cost a cent.
