  1. Sounds familiar doesn’t it Bill… love the rocks in your beautiful pic

  2. Reblogged this on On the Homefront and commented:
    these are my three passions too!

  3. A simple yet profound summary of the meaning of life (or meaning for living).

  4. As they guided, so they made the man, I would imagine.

    I wonder how Bertrand Russell’s life and his world might have changed if instead of knowledge he sought wisdom, and instead of having unbearable pity for the suffering of mankind he simply chose to give kindness where he could.

  6. Loved this Bill, thank you.
