Words of Wisdom No. 19

93fe52695914f9d1ff683fa92d270ba1

There is a famous proverb that goes somewhere on the lines of “what a man thinketh in his heart, so is he.”  It could not be truer that your thoughts reflect who you are as a person.   Just look back 10 years ago to your secret dreams, hopes and desires.  More often than not those inner thoughts, shared or unshared have impacted your present life in some way, shape or form.

Below is a collection of my fravourite lines on how your thoughts today, will ultimately impact tomorrows actions.

A man is but the product of his thoughts. What he thinks, he becomes.
– Mahatma Gandhi

Learn the art of patience. Apply discipline to your thoughts when they become anxious over the outcome of a goal. Impatience breeds anxiety, fear, discouragement and failure. Patience creates confidence, decisiveness, and a rational outlook, which eventually leads to success.

– Brian Adams

Nurture your mind with great thoughts.

– Benjamin Disraeli

Entertain thoughts that give life. And when a thought or resentment, or hurt, or fear comes your way, have another thought that is more powerful — a thought that is love.

– Mary Manin Morrissey

The game of life is the game of boomerangs. Our thoughts, deeds and words return to us sooner or later, with astounding accuracy.

– Florence Shinn

We know not of the future, and cannot plan for it much. But we can hold our spirits and our bodies so pure and high, we may cherish such thoughts and ideals, and dream such dreams of lofty purpose, that we can determine and know what manner of men we will be whenever and wherever the hour stricks that calls to noble action…, No man becomes suddenly different from his habit and cherished thought.

– Joshua L. Chamberlain

Your beliefs become your thoughts. Your thoughts become your words. Your words become your actions. Your actions become your habits. Your habits become your values. Your values become your destiny.

– Mahatma Gandhi

The happiness of your life depends upon the quality of your thoughts, therefore guard accordingly and take care that you entertain no notions unsuitable to virtue, and reasonable nature.

– Marcus Aurelius Antoninus

Michelle Obama, First Lady of America

Biography: As a African-American woman born in the 1960’s Michelle Obama has faced many setbacks and difficulties in her life but has pressed forward with resolute courage and unfaltering determination. Raised in a simple one-bedroom apartment on the top floor of a brick bungalow, she understands what many colored American’s face on a day-to-day basis. Michelle and her brother grew up witnessing events that ingrained in her the determination to fight for the black people of America. – One such incident tells of a carpenter, who happens to be her grandfather who was denied union membership due to his race, was shut out of the city’s top construction jobs. Rather than sinking into despair and hopelessness of what may become of the future, Michelle encouraged by her family, pressed on with even more determination and courage to fight for the recognition that colored men and women deserved. And she has done, just that with phenomenal success!

The Look: Michelle channels the 1950’s and 1960’s streamlined and simple look. Appearing on many best-dressed lists she draws frequent comparisons to Jacqueline Kennedy – famous for her elegant 1960’s suit and pillbox hat. Often opting for light summer dresses, with floral prints on informal occasions; or on more formal occasions she often favors a classy knee-length dress or a simple pencil skirt and jacket. Reggie Wells who performfs power-puff duties for Michelle and her husband claims that “she will be the next Jacqueline (Kennedy) Onassis. She has perfect skin. She’s gorgeous, clever and elegant” And isn’t that just want America wants their next First Lady to be?

“…I’m extremely happy with her, and part of it has to do with the fact that she is at once completely familiar to me, so that I can be myself and she knows me very well and I trust her completely, but at the same time she is also a complete mystery to me in some ways. And there are times when we are lying in bed and I look over and sort of have a start. Because I realize here is this other person who is separate and different and has different memories and backgrounds and thoughts and feelings. It’s that tension between familiarity and mystery that makes for something strong, because, even as you build a life of trust and comfort and mutual support, you retain some sense of surprise or wonder about the other person.”

President Barack Obama
