A Quote by Robert Frost on Greatness

Mountains and Rivers 157

There never was any heart truly great and generous, that was not also tender and compassionate.

Robert Frost

  I love the poetry of Robert Frost, and this quote gives us yet another look, into the heart and thinking of the poet. There have been many great people of history, but all too often, the people that were called great, were people of war, or that loved war. I love this quote, because I think Frost was saying true greatness is connected to generosity, and that this greatness and generosity, come from, or come out of, a heart of tenderness and compassion.

And let’s not forget that there is a huge difference between weakness and compassion. In fact, a person that is compassionate is incredibly strong. There is nothing more powerful on earth, than love. It takes great strength to forgive someone that hates you. To have tenderness, and compassion for that same person, takes amazing strength, and is one of the most important battles you will ever face.

Never let hatred rule over you. Break the throne of hatred, by responding in the opposite way, with tenderness, and compassion. That is what true greatness is all about.

Peace.

Cars

Oceans 1351

I like cars especially,

the old ones,

but I know a man,

that spent $800 a month,

for his car payment, and $200

a month, for gasoline,

not including,

his insurance,

and maintenance costs.

Do you realize how many children,

that would feed?

Have we lost our minds?

A Quote on Imagination

Oceans 2034

Imagination is more important than knowledge. Knowledge is limited. Imagination encircles the world.

Albert Einstein

Imagination is that part of us that causes creativity. I love this quote, because Einstein helps us to see, that even though knowledge is good and beneficial, imagination goes far beyond knowledge. Our creativity is unlimited! Math will help us to calculate the needs of those caught in poverty, but our creativity, fired by our imagination, will find ways to battle against this plague. Solutions are what we need, and our imagination is the vehicle to get us there.

When you combine love with imagination, then you really have a powerful force!

Have a great Saturday!

Peace.
