The 05/18/13 Joy Jar

17 May


Moi has a couple of mugs that she uses all the time. They have been around so long that she considers them as friends. One can put tea or coffee in them and they provide the perfect complement to whatever beverage. Today’s deposit into the ‘Joy Jar’ is moi’s favorite mugs.

Clay is molded to form a cup, But it is on its non-being that the utility of the cup depends. Doors and windows are cut out to make a room, But it is on its non-being that the utility of the room depends. Therefore turn being into advantage, and turn non-being into utility.”

Lao Tzu

When the cup is full, carry it even”

Scottish Proverb

Its amazing how the World begins to change through the eyes of a cup of coffee!!”

Donna A. Favor

A pinch of praise is worth a pound of scorn. A dash of encouragement is more helpful than a dipper of pessimism. A cup of kindness is better than a cupboard of criticism.”

William Arthur Ward

Never lose an opportunity of seeing anything that is beautiful; for beauty is God’s handwriting – a wayside sacrament. Welcome it in every fair face, in every fair sky, in every fair flower, and thank God for it as a cup of blessing.”

Ralph Waldo Emerson

The mere chink of cups and saucers turns the mind to happy repose”

George Gissie
