There are those days, that happen quite often
when your intelligent friends post amazing, and thought-provoking quotes.
I am honored to be graced by so much intellectual brilliance. Today was an exceptional day.
The first of these was posted, by the most respected Lawrence Reed, whom I recieve great reminders and inspiration from every day. It reads:
"Moral cowardice that keeps us from speaking our minds is as dangerous to this country as irresponsible talk. The right way is not always the popular and easy way. Standing for right when it is unpopular is a true test of moral character" — the late Maine Senator Margaret Chase Smith.
I find this quote so touching today, as I see many mainstream americans standing and speaking. That, gives me hope.
Then, there was this quote, (if its yours please let me know, the words struck me though) "When I die, I want to be able to face my God and tell him that I used ALL of the talent he blessed me with, I exhausted it, I wasted not a drop"
This touching quote led me to pledge to all of humanity to die knowing I used every bit, of my talent, my skills, and my resources, to leave humanity better than I was born into it.
And certainly not least, this poignant Robert Frost quote, given by Jim Davidson
"The woods are lovely, dark and deep. But I have promises to keep, and miles to go before I sleep.”
I believe the promises Robert Frost is talking about are the promises, to himself. To share himself and his brilliance with the world, unapologetically, and use every bit of his talent.
Let us all be so brave.
These three very wise, fitting and well timed reminders, from those that went before us carry much weight of wisdom. They have been sitting on my soul. For a divine(or whatever you want to call your higher self) reason I am sure of it. I admire my friends who speak out, ask the right questions, take on the court system in order to show the foolishness of it all. Write books teaching others, how to disengage, and blatantly point out in laymans terms what is happening to us as a people. People behind the scenes. All of you! A great awakening is needed, and happening, ready or not; and I am finally ready to take it to the next level. I trust this community. Sure, there are silly fights and what nots. But I trust you all to have my back, when I stand up. I certainly have yours.
