USED vs. LOVED
While a man was polishing his new car his 6 yr old son picked up a stone and scratched lines on the side of the car.
In anger the man took the child´s hand and hit it many times;
not realizing he was using a wrench.
At the hospital the child lost all his fingers due to multiple fractures.
When the child saw his father...
with painful eyes he asked ´Dad when will my fingers grow back?´
The man was so hurt and speechless;
he went back to his car and kicked it a lot of times.
Devastated by his own actions.....
sitting in front of that car he looked at the scratches;
the child had written ´LOVE YOU DAD´.
The next day that man committed suicide. . .
Anger and Love have no limits;
choose the latter to have a beautiful lovely life.....
Things are to be used and people are to be loved.
But the problem in today´s world is that
People are used and things are loved.
In this year let´s be careful to keep this thought in mind:
Things are to be used
but People are to be loved.
Watch your thoughts; they become words.
Watch your words; they become actions...
How times changed
The famous actor Arnold Sch#warzenegger posted a picture of him sleeping in the street under his famous bronze statue and wrote sadly (How times changed).
The reason he wrote the sentence was not only because he was old but because when the governor of California opened the hotel with the statue in front of him. The hotel officials told Arnold: ´At any time you can come and have a room reserved in your name´. When Arnold left judgment and went to the hotel the administration refused to give him a room arguing that the hotel was fully booked.
He brought a cover and slept under the statue and asked people to imagine it. He wants to convey a message that when he was in a position they were praising him and when he lost this position they forgot and did not fulfill their promise to him. Yes times have changed. Do not trust your position or your owner or your power or your intelligence. All of this will not last.

Google’s Internet Services Has 2 Billion Lines Of Code Which Is 40 Times Size Of The The Windows
According to Google Engineering Manager Rachel Potvin at an engineering conference in Silicon Valley on Monday estimated that the soft#ware required to run all of Google’s Internet services from Gmail to Google Search to Google Maps extends to about 2 billion lines of code in comparison to Microsoft’s Windows operating system which is likely around 50 million lines of code. This means that the size of the soft#ware required for the Google service is 40 times the size of the Windows.
Grateful souls focus on the happiness and abundance present in their lives and this in turn attracts more abundance and joy to#wards them.
Something I didn’t even know was on my bucket list has been achieved. I have cooked Thanksgiving dinner with Martha Ste#wart. I vow to follow the gospel of her teachings and do my very best in the remarkably less glamorous kitchen of my own home... without the luxury of magically appearing prep bowls filled by a staff of sous chefs.
I am so excited this year getting to play the 85th Anniversary Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. Everyone knows on Thanksgiving morning to get up, turn on the TV and watch the parade, so to be an actual participant is going to be fun and I’m looking for#ward to it. I am gonna have to put on my deer hunting gear, though, to stay #warm!
It’s so #warm now, and Thanksgiving came so early - is it just me, or does it not really feel like Ramadan?
Gratitude is the in#ward feeling of kindness received. Thankfulness is the natural impulse to express that feeling. Thanksgiving is the following of that impulse.
It’s always the generals with the bloodiest records who are the first to shout what a hell it is. And it’s always the #war widows who lead the Memorial Day parades.
From 1971 on#wards, the Memorial Day holiday was officially observed on the last Monday in May and became the unofficial start of the summer, with barbecues, blockbuster movie openings and mattress sales.
As America celebrates Memorial Day, we pay tribute to those who have given their lives in our nation’s #wars.
I don’t want to see people decorating a house or digging a garden. As for guys like Jonathan Ross, he got an a#ward there last Christmas. What for? He doesn’t sing, dance or tell jokes, does he?
It always depresses me when people moan about how commercial Christmas is. I love everything about it. The tradition of having this great big feast, slap bang in the middle of winter, is an essential thing to look for#ward to at the end of the year.
’The #war in Iraq - if Osama was a Christian - it’s the Christmas present he never would have expected.
My mother, she had a very good attitude to#ward money. I’m very grateful for the fact that we had to learn to save. I used to get like 50 pence a week, and I’d save it for like five months. And then I’d spend it on Christmas presents. I’d save up like eight pounds. It’s nothing, but we did that.
I went to Sunday School and liked the stories about Christ and the Christmas star. They were beautiful. They made you #warm and happy to think about. But I didn’t believe them.
I made a French film called ’Merry Christmas’ which is a very European film. It’s a World #war I piece.
Making a Christmas album is looked upon by some people as the thing you do when you are heading to#wards retirement.
The worst gift that I ever gave a girl was a suitcase for Christmas. As in, ’I can’t think of anything to give you, but here’s a new suitcase.’ After#ward, I was like, ’What were you thinking, idiot?’
We should declare #war on North Vietnam. We could pave the whole country and put parking strips on it, and still be home by Christmas.
In our open society, we are inclined to give to the less fortunate for the pure goodness of giving. We open our home to those who are alone on this holiday to spread some #warmth into the life of another.
I love Christmas, not just because of the presents but because of all the decorations and lights and the #warmth of the season.
Australians are coffee snobs. An influx of Italian immigrants after World #war II ensured that - we probably had the word ’cappuccino’ about 20 years before America. Cafe culture is really big for Aussies. We like to work hard, but we take our leisure time seriously.
I’m very happy to hear that my work inspires writers and painters. It’s the most beautiful compliment, the greatest re#ward. Art should always be an exchange.
I suppose for me as an artist it wasn’t always just about expressing my work I really wanted, more than anything else, to contribute in some way to the culture that I was living in. It just seemed like a challenge to move it a little bit to#wards the way I thought it might be interesting to go.
