The Genius for Happiness – Ellen Key

The genius for happiness is still so rare, is indeed on the whole the rarest genius. To possess it means to approach life with the humility of a beggar, to treat it with the proud generosity of a prince; to bring to its totality the deep understanding of a great poet and to each of its moments the abandonment and ingenuousness of a child.

Ellen Key, 1849 – 1926

Information is….Ram Dass

Information is just bits of data.  Knowledge is putting
them together. Wisdom is transcending them.
            Ram Dass, 1931 – 2019

I Try by Diane Glancy

I try.  I am trying.  I was trying.  I will try.  

I shall in the meantime try. I sometimes have tried. 

I shall still by that time be trying.    Diane Glancy, b. 1941
