The 07/22/13 Joy Jar

22 Jul

Moi walked down Pine Street in Seattle tonight to take the bus. This is the portion of the street where Macys is on one corner and Mc Donalds is on the other. Between them are a bumper crop of lost souls. The Scientologists were outside their storefront, sitting at table, trying to get some one, any one to take their personality test. There were the teens with baggy pants and the adult vultures scoping their next prey. Moi thought about how important it was to have a life of purpose. Today’s deposit into ‘Joy Jar’ is a life of purpose.

“The mystery of human existence lies not in just staying alive, but in finding something to live for.”
Fyodor Dostoyevsky, The Brothers Karamazov

“It does not matter how long you are spending on the earth, how much money you have gathered or how much attention you have received. It is the amount of positive vibration you have radiated in life that matters,”
Amit Ray

“The purpose of life is to contribute in some way to making things better.”
Robert F. Kennedy

“Every job from the heart is, ultimately, of equal value. The nurse injects the syringe; the writer slides the pen; the farmer plows the dirt; the comedian draws the laughter. Monetary income is the perfect deceiver of a man’s true worth.”
Criss Jami

“Living in a way that reflects one’s values is not just about what you do, it is also about how you do things.”
Deborah Day

“If life is not a celebration, why remember it ? If life — mine or that of my fellow man — is not an offering to the other, what are we doing on this earth?”
Elie Wiesel, Open Heart

“Stop comparing yourself with anybody. Compare yourself with yourself, for yourself and by yourself. We are uniquely pottered and purposed by our maker!”
Ifeanyi Enoch Onuoha

“Look, the job of life is to turn your negatives into positives”
Michka Assayas, Bono: In Conversation with Michka Assayas
