The 09/12/13 Joy Jar

14 Sep

While on a walk, moi noticed a beautiful stain glass window. Windows can be fairly utilitarian and you really don’t notice them if they are clean or until they are missing. Windows in unusual shapes make a statement about either the architect, the owner, or they just say look at me. Stain glass windows are another matter, they draw you in. Today’s deposit into the ‘Joy Jar’ is the beautiful windows of the world.

People are like stained – glass windows. They sparkle and shine when the sun is out, but when the darkness sets in, their true beauty is revealed only if there is a light from within.
Elisabeth Kubler-Ross

One of the most tragic things I know about human nature is that all of us tend to put off living. We are all dreaming of some magical rose garden over the horizon instead of enjoying the roses that are blooming outside our windows today.
Dale Carnegie

The body is a house of many windows: there we all sit, showing ourselves and crying on the passers-by to come and love us.
Robert Louis Stevenson

If you believe in God, He will open the windows of heaven and pour blessings upon you.
Mahalia Jackson

The whole purpose of education is to turn mirrors into windows.
Sydney J. Harris

Because forgiveness is like this: a room can be dank because you have closed the windows, you’ve closed the curtains. But the sun is shining outside, and the air is fresh outside. In order to get that fresh air, you have to get up and open the window and draw the curtains apart.
Desmond Tutu

A house without books is like a room without windows. No man has a right to bring up his children without surrounding them with books, if he has the means to buy them.
Horace Mann

“This life’s dim windows of the soul
Distorts the heavens from pole to pole
And leads you to believe a lie
When you see with, not through, the eye.”
William Blake

“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

“Let there be many windows to your soul, that all the glory of the world may beautify it.”
Ella Wheeler

There comes a time in a man’s life when to get where he has to go – if there are no doors or windows he walks through a wall.
Bernard Malamud
