Pamela believes that some things are just too good to not share. Some of these are simple quotes; others are longer (though still short) pieces Pamela found to be gems. She hopes you find something here that gives you insight or at least a giggle.

Nursing-Home Residents Mate In Captivity (from The Onion)
COLBY, KS—Following six months of failed attempts under intense observation by geriatric scientists, Briarwood Nursing Home residents Horace Klass, 86, and Helen Veukmaan, 83, successfully mated in captivity Monday. "As with most new arrivals to Briarwood, Horace and Helen at first seemed despondent," Briarwood's Dr. William Stander said. "Before long, though, they grew accustomed to their new habitat, and Horace soon felt comfortable enough to approach Helen. Indeed, Horace ultimately proved quite aggressive." Briarwood employees report that, after mating, Klass provided Veukmaan with half a box of windmill cookies.

Happiness comes through doors you didn't even know you left open.
Most of us go to our grave with our music still inside of us.
You may be only one person in the world, but you may also be the world to one person.
Some mistakes are too much fun to only make once. Don't cry because it's over; smile because it happened.
A truly happy person is one who can enjoy the scenery on a detour.


JUST DO IT! -- Nike

Many things we need to know about life, we can learn from Noah's Ark...
--One: Don't miss the boat.
--Two: Remember that we are all in the same boat.
--Three: Plan ahead. It wasn't raining when Noah built the Ark.
--Four: Stay fit. When you're 600, someone may ask you to do something really big.
--Five: Don't listen to critics; just get on with the job that needs to be done.
--Six: Build your future on high ground.
--Seven: Travel in pairs.
--Eight: Speed isn't always an advantage. The snails were on board with the cheetahs.
--Nine: When you're stressed, float a while.
--Ten: Remember, the Ark was built by amateurs; the Titanic by professionals.
--Eleven: No matter the storm, there's always a rainbow waiting.


You are not happy because you are well. You are well because you are happy. You are not depressed because trouble has come to you, but trouble has come to you because you are depressed. You can change your thoughts and feelings, and then the outer things will come to correspond, and indeed there is no other way of working. -- Emmet Fox

After hearing the words of a song "Tempted by the fruit of another, Tempted but the truth is discovered" my 4 year old niece Olivia said: "Truth isn't all that's discovered, dinosaur bones are discovered, too."


Oh Sacred Water,
I come again to thy shores,
I see the ever-flowing Wisdom Stream.
Oh Sacred Water,
I enter thee,
let wash away
Those weighty thoughts
that keep me From your Sea of Equanimity.
Oh Creator, our eyes become clear,
Wisdom's sacred light shines in our hearts.
Let us see, let us be
That which we are.
May all Beings realize Harmony and Unity.
--Tsalagi (Cherokee) prayer
