“Do not let yourself be bothered by the inconsequential.

 

One has only so much time in this world,

so devote it to the work and the people most important to you,

to those you love and things that matter.

 

One can waste half a lifetime with people one doesn’t really like,

or doing things when one would be better off somewhere else.”

a God who said of anything we happened to like doing,

“Dogs are our link to paradise.

They don’t know evil or jealousy or discontent.

To sit with a dog on a hillside on a glorious afternoon is to be back in Eden,

where doing nothing was not boring–it was peace.”

“I’ve known too many stupid intellectuals to believe that education and wisdom come as a package deal along with facts,

it’s your perspective that counts –

your ability to see differently, not just to see a lot.”

[ Sidenote: I tried finding out more about Mrs. or Ms. Decker apart from her being the author of “Empty Spoon”. The little I found is limited to her having been a white High-School English teacher at a predominantly black High-School. If you know more about her, please let me know. ]
