  Summer thoughts...

"Do not burn yourselves out.... Save the other half of yourselves and your lives for pleasure & adventure." – Edward Abbey (2)

"Are you all urbanites? City life puts people to sleep." – Michael Schmidt (organic family farmer)

" free ourselves ... embrace all living creatures and the whole
of nature ..." –
Einstein (2)

"The traveler was active; he went strenuously in search of people, of adventure, of experience. The tourist is passive; he expects interesting things to happen to him. He goes 'sight seeing'." – Daniel J. Boorstin

Frodo: "I wish the ring had never come to me. I wish none of this had ever happened." Gandalf: "So do all who live to see such times, but that is not for them to decide. All you have to decide is what to do with the time that is given you." – Tolkien (2)

"A loving person lives in a loving world. A hostile person lives in a hostile world: everyone you meet is your mirror." – Ken Keyes
