A Matter of Time

You only get to keep what you give away It's a universal law: You have to give before you get. You must plant your seeds before you reap the harvest. The more you sow, the more you'll reap. In giving to others, you'll find yourself blessed.The law works to give you back more than you have sown. The giver's harvest is always full. Those that obtain have little. Those who scatter have much. Nature does not give to those who will not spend.

What belongs to you but others use it more than you do?

"Well," said Einstein, "I was once walking in the country with a blind friend of mine. The day was hot and I said that I would enjoy a nice cool drink of Milk. "Milk?" asked my friend. "Drink I understand, but what is milk?" "A white liquid," I explained. "Liquid I understand, but what is white?""The colour of a swan's feathers." "Feathers I understand, but what is a swan?" "A bird with a crooked neck." "Neck I understand, but what is crooked?" I gently took his arm and straightened it. "That's straight," I said. Then I bent it at the elbow. "And this is crooked." "Oh," exclaimed the blind man, "now I understand what you mean by milk."

Solution: Your Name

"Everyone has an invisible sign hanging from their neck saying: 'Make me feel important.' Never forget this message when working with people."

Mary Kay Ashe

Why can we see through glass?

Because solid though it may seem, glass is really a viscous liquid. I'll pause a moment while that crosses your synapses and bounces among your neurons.Mind you that's a viscous, not vicious liquid such as a mix of vodka and champagne. A viscous liquid stiffens when cooled, but never becomes completely solid. Unlike solids, in which the atoms arrange themselves in a rigid, crystalline molecular structure, glass atoms just hang out, helter-skelter-like. Light can squeeze between them.The molecular make-up of glass, unlike that of ordinary solids, such as wood, also keeps it from absorbing visible light. Its structure also prevents the loss of light through internal reflections, characteristic of a solid. Only glass' outer surface reflects light, which makes it considerably more useful than, say, silver or tin for eyeglass lenses.The greatest part of happiness or misery depends on our dispositions, not our circumstances.

Martha Washington 1732-1802

I've dreamed many dreams that never came true. I've seen them vanish at dawn, but I've realized enough of my dreams, thank god, to make me want to dream on.

I've prayed many prayers when no answer came, though I waited patient and long but answers have come to enough of my prayers to make me want to keep praying on.

I've trusted many a friend that failed, and left me to weep alone. But I've found enough of my friend’s true blue to make me trust on.

I've sown many seed that fell by the way for the birds to feed upon but I've held enough golden sheaves in my hands to make me keep sowing on.

I've drained the cup of disappointment and pain and gone many days without song but I've sipped enough nectar from the roses of life to make me want to live on.
