The Good Life …

Is laced with good relationships ……

Is laced with spirituality ……

The good life also has it’s risks ……

To quote Henry David Thoreau, Essayist

Rather than love, than money, than fame, give me truth.

I would rather sit on a pumpkin, and have it all to myself, than be crowded on a velvet cushion.

Live in each season as it passes; breathe the air, drink the drink, taste the fruit, and resign yourself to the influences of each. Let them be your only diet drink and botanical medicines.

Our truest life is when we are in our dreams awake.

If a man is alive, there is always danger that he may die, though the danger must be allowed to be less in proportion as he is dead-and-alive to begin with. A man sits as many risks as he runs.
