THIS WEEK’S BAR QUOTES – (from 10-24-08)

The leaves did not stir on the trees, grasshoppers chirruped, and the monotonous hollow sound of the sea rising up from below, spoke of the peace, of the eternal sleep awaiting us. So it must have sounded when there was no Yalta, no Oreanda here; so it sounds now, and it will sound as indifferently and monotonously when we are all no more. And in this constancy, in this complete indifference to the life and death of each of us, there lies hid, perhaps, a pledge of our eternal salvation, of the unceasing movement of life upon earth, of unceasing progress towards perfection.
–Anton Chekhov
Therefore all seasons shall be sweet to thee,
Whether the summer clothe the general earth
With greenness, or the red breast sit and sing
Betwixt the tufts of snow on the bare branch
Of mossy apple tree.
–Samuel Taylor Coleridge, “Frost at Midnight”
You are where you are right now in your life because of the choices you have made and the actions you have taken. If you want to change your life, remember that change starts with you.

We do not quit playing because we grow old, we grow old because we quit playing.
–Oliver Wendell Holmes
Wise men talk because they have something to say; fools talk because they have to say something.
Wisdom is ofttimes nearer when we stoop than when we soar.
–William Wordsworth
The more sand that has escaped from the hourglass of our life, the clearer we should see through it.
–Jean Paul
Success in highest and noblest form calls for peace of mind and enjoyment and happiness which comes only to the man who has found the work he likes best.
