MY FIRST “THURSDAY THOUGHTS” QUOTE !!! {drumroll, cymbal smash}

    The master in the ART of living makes little distinction between his work and his PLAY, his labor and his leisure, his mind and his body, his information and his recreation, his love and his religion.He hardly knows which is which.
He simply pursues his vision of excellence at whatever he does, leaving others to decide whether he is WORKING or PLAYING.
To him he’s always doing both.  (James Michener)

This amazing quote opens a book Rules of the Red Rubber Ball, by Kevin Carroll.  I’ve not read it yet, but read a beaming review last night.  It’s said to be chock full of inspiration –a “must read”! 

I’m late getting this up this week, but I’m looking forward to your quotes and reviews next week.  Save me a great one!  I’ll can’t wait!

ME: “MAGGIE”

Sifting the joy from the mundane:

recording, photographing, learning, creating.

I am married to the love of my life, as we raise three children, learning the ways of grace.

Magnanimity (derived from the Latin roots magn- great, and anima, soul) is the virtue of being great of mind and heart. It encompasses, usually, a refusal to be petty, a willingness to face danger, and actions for noble purposes. Its antithesis is pusillanimity. Both terms were coined by Aristotle, who called magnanimity "the crowning virtue."

Noah Webster's 1828 Dictionary of the American Language defines Magnanimity as such:

MAGNANIM'ITY, n. [L. magnanimitas; magnus, great, and animus, mind.] Greatness of mind; that elevation or dignity of soul, which encounters danger and trouble with tranquillity and firmness, which raises the possessor above revenge, and makes him delight in acts of benevolence, which makes him disdain injustice and meanness, and prompts him to sacrifice personal ease, interest and safety for the accomplishment of useful and noble objects.[1] (Source: Wikipedia)

Please know that I am not posting as an expert, but as a fellow traveler. I recommend that you research and double check things on your own before taking any advice or instruction from this site.  Information is given in good faith for the time period in which it was written. I am also an affiliate of the Sure Cuts A Lot software, for Cricut, which means you don't need Cricut cartridges to cut any font or .jpg on your computer.  I get some pocket change for introducing you if you choose to buy it by clicking on my site.  And we all know I need more cardstock, so I do appreciate it.  I sometimes review other products for a fee, but I am not required to give a positive review, and post honestly as to my experience.  I hope you find this useful.
