THIS WEEK’S BAR QUOTES – (from 09-18-08)

A lofty idea must be had, not of what one is doing, but of what one may some day do.
Otherwise there is no point in working on.
–Edgar Hilaire Germain Degas (at age 70)

All our talents increase in the using, and every faculty, both good and bad, strengthens by exercise.
–Anne Bronte (1820-1849) Novelist and poet

People like you and I, though mortal of course like everyone else, do not grow old no matter how long we live…[We] never cease to stand like curious children before the great mystery into which we were born.
–Albert Einstein

I know of no safe repository for the ultimate powers of society but the people themselves; and if we think them not enlightened enough to exercise their control with a wholesome discretion, the remedy is not to take it from them, but to increase their discretion by education.
–Thomas Jefferson (1743 – 1826)

Most people think that aging is irreversible and we know that there are mechanisms even in the human machinery that allow for the reversal of aging, through correction of diet, through anti-oxidants, through removal of toxins from the body, through exercise, through yoga and breathing techniques, and through meditation.
–Deepak Chopra

For both excessive and insufficient exercise destroy one’s strength, and both eating and drinking too much or too little destroy health, whereas the right quantity produces, increases or preserves it. So it is the same with temperance, courage and the other virtues…This much then, is clear: in all our conduct it is the mean that is to be commended.
–Aristotle (384 – 322 BC)

Eating a vegetarian diet, walking (exercising) everyday, and meditating is considered radical. Allowing someone to slice your chest open and graft your leg veins in your heart is considered normal and conservative.
–Dean Ornish

I used to kiss her on the lips, but its all over now.

A kiss is something you cannot give without taking and cannot take without giving.

I adore simple pleasures. They are the last refuge of the complex.
–Oscar Wilde

I have lived with several Zen masters in my lifetime—all of them cats.
–Zen proverb

The fishermen know that the sea is dangerous and the storm terrible, but they have never found these dangers sufficient reason for remaining ashore.
–Vincent von Gogh

In wisdom gathered over time I have found that every experience is a form of exploration.
–Ansel Adams
