The 06/22/13 Joy Jar

22 Jun


Moi went for a long walk this afternoon and when she looked at the sky she saw a clue blue sky with white puffy clouds that looked like gigantic cotton balls sprinkled across the sky. These were friendly clouds. Today’s deposit into the ‘Joy Jar’ are friendly clouds that look like gigantic cotton balls.

Clouds are God’s sneezes.

Ralph Wiggum

Celebrate your success and stand strong when adversity hits, for when the storm clouds come in, the eagles soar while the small birds take cover

Napolean Hill

God writes the Gospel not in the Bible alone, but also on trees, and in the flowers and clouds and stars.

Martin Luther

Your hopes, dreams and aspirations are legitimate. They are trying to take you airborne, above the clouds, above the storms, if you only let them

William James

A pessimist only sees the dark side of the clouds, and mopes; a philosopher sees both sides and shrugs; an optimist doesn’t see the clouds at all–he’s walking on them.

Leonard L. Levensen

Measure not God’s love and favour by your own feeling. The sun shines as clearly in the darkest day as it does in the brightest. The difference is not in the sun, but in some clouds which hinder the manifestation of the light thereof.

Richard Sibbes

To penetrate and dissipate these clouds of darkness, the general mind must be strengthened by education.
Thomas Jefferson

It is better to have your head in the clouds, and know where you are… than to breathe the clearer atmosphere below them, and think that you are in paradise.
Henry David Thoreau

It dwells in [lowly] places that all disdain.
This is why it is so near to Tao.

There are some people who leave impressions not so lasting as the imprint of an oar upon the water.

Truth may be stretched, but cannot be broken, and always gets above falsehood, as oil does above water.
