Think of how tiny our planet is when viewed from outer space. It is so small and insignificant, that any person who demands honor from others is making a fool of himself.
Think about the leaders of countries who wage wars to gain more honor for themselves. From the perspective of the minuteness of our planet in relation to the entire universe, a person's seeking honor is ridiculous.
A skeleton was sent to the Rockefeller museum with a note: "Cause of Death: heart failure"
The curators asked the archeologist how they could possibly know that without a forensic examination.
The archeologist answered that they found a note in ancient Philistine next the body which when deciphered read:
"Bet 10,000 shekels on Goliath."
This is a poem written by a teenager with cancer.
This poem was written by a terminally ill young girl in a New York Hospital.
SLOW DANCE Have you ever watched kids On a merry-go-round? Or listened to the rain Slapping on the ground?
Ever followed a butterfly's erratic flight? Or gazed at the sun into the fading night?
You better slow down. Don't dance so fast. Time is short. The music won't last.
Do you run through each day On the fly? When you ask How are you? Do you hear the reply? When the day is done
Do you lie in your bed
With the next hundred chores Running through your head? You'd better slow down Don't dance so fast. Time is short. The music won't last
. Ever told your child, We'll do it tomorrow? And in your haste, Not see his sorrow?
Ever lost touch, Let a good friendship die Cause you never had time To call and say,'Hi' You'd better slow down. Don't dance so fast. Time is short. The music won't last.. When you run so fast to get somewhere You miss half the fun of getting there.
When you worry and hurry through your day, It is like an unopened gift....Thrown away.
Life is not a race. Do take it slower Hear the music Before the song is over
