Thought 4 the Week: On The Reason To Live

Finding a reason to live, to love and to cherish life is the essence of life.      The World continues to be a dangerous place.   How we choose to live and to leave a legacy will be the ultimate testament.    The idea of "Outsiderst" and its' evolution has been to think about such ultimate questions.     I reflected upon this as I received the latest from Jonanthan Luckwood Huie:

 

We do not need to proselytize
either by our speech or by our writing.
We can only do so really with our lives.
Let our lives be open books for all to study.
- Mohandas (Mahatma) Gandhi

Anyone who proposes to do good
must not expect people to roll stones out of his way,
but must accept his lot calmly,
even if they roll a few stones upon it.
- Albert Schweitzer

To leave the world a bit better ...
to know that one life has breathed easier because you have lived.
This is to have succeeded.
- Ralph Waldo Emerson

The ultimate test of a man's conscience
may be his willingness to sacrifice something today
for future generations whose words of thanks will not be heard.
- Gaylord Nelson

The full measure of a man is
not to be found in the man himself,
but in the colors and textures that
come alive in others because of him.
