    John Rohn’s quote stuck out to me today. I really enjoy a few people and take their thoughts and comments into serious consideration. This quote helps me realize I need many sources of input, even if I may not like the person or his/her ideas. Both types of people challenge me and help me grow.

    Yes , there should have variations in all fields of life…that makes the life more interesting. But we should not have variations when it comes to relations like husband and wife, true friendships etc. We cannot afford to change it every season….

    Hello Shawn,
    I have missed reading your wonderful quotes, these are all wonderful, everyone of them sends a most inspiring message. Thank you so much for your inspiring gift of faith hope and love by all these amazing quotes you list each week.

    I have some to share:

    I, ever knowing the living beings
    Who tread the Path and those who do not
    In response to those who may be saved
    Preach to them a variety of dharmas,
    Each time having this thought:
    ‘How may I cause the beings
    To contrive to enter the Unexcelled Path
    and quickly to perfect the Buddha-body?’

    Buddha (563 – 483 BC)

    Diversity is not an abnormality but the very reality of our planet. The human world manifests the same reality and will not seek our permission to celebrate itself in the magnificence of its endless varieties. Civility is a sensible attribute in this kind of world we have; narrowness of heart and mind is not.

    ~ Chinua Achebe, 1930- ~

    Yet high over the city our line of yellow windows must have contributed their share of human secrecy to the casual watcher in the darkening streets, and I was him too, looking up and wondering. I was within and without, simultaneously enchanted and repelled by the inexhaustable variety of life.

    F. Scott Fitzgerald (1896 – 1940)

    A Garden, an Elaboratory, a Work-house, Improvements and Breeding, are pleasant and Profitable Diversions to the Idle and Ingenious: For here they miss Ill Company, and converse with Nature and Art; whose Variety are equally grateful and instructing; and preserve a good Constitution of Body and Mind.

    William Penn (1644 – 1718)

    The secret of love is seeking variety in your life together, and never letting routine chords dull the melody of your romance.


    Of the infinite variety of fruits which spring from the bosom of the earth, the trees of the wood are the greatest in dignity.

    Susan Fenimore Cooper

    In things to be seen at once, much variety makes confusion, another vice of beauty. In things that are not seen at once, and have no respect one to another, great variety is commendable, provided this variety transgress not the rules of optics and geometry.

    Sir Christopher Wren (1632 – 1723)

    The great source of pleasure is variety.

    Samuel Johnson (1709 – 1784)

    Our creator rejoices in diversity and variety. Any observation of our abundant earth and its incredibly different life-forms proves this.

    Robyn Knibbe

    Our sight is the most perfect and most delightful of all our senses. It fills the mind with the largest variety of ideas, converses with its objects at the greatest distance, and continues the longest in action without being tired or satiated.

    Joseph Addison (1672 – 1719)

    The physical rhythm of life established through sensitivity to qualitative time mirrors the ebb and flow of water. Maintaining rhythm is dependent on our daily decisions concerning vocation, recreation and work. Using the image of water roots Watershed Spirituality in diversity and pluralism. Life in a “variety of forms” implies an emphasis on inter-religious appreciation and the universalist vision.

    Arthur Paul Patterson

    Variety is the soul of pleasure.

    Aphra Behn (1640 – 1689)

    Here hills and vales, the woodland and the plain Here earth and water seem to strive again, Not chaos-like together crushed and bruised, But, as the world, harmoniously confused: Where order in variety we see, And where, though all things differ, all agree.

    Alexander Pope (1688 – 1744)

    Take care always!
