Here is another collection of quotes; as noted I'm taking a bit of a break from regular blog.....hope all you folks are having a good summer...

“Not being able to speak isn’t the same as not having anything to say…” Author unknown

“Everyone needs to know where it is they are needed and what for.” John O’Brien

“It is not because things are difficult that we do not dare; it is because we do not dare they are difficult.” Seneca

"Community is nearly impossible in a highly monetized society like our own....That is because community is woven from gifts, which is ultimately why poor people often have stronger communities than rich people. If you are financially independent, then you really don't depend on your neighbors—or indeed on any specific person—for anything. You can just pay someone to do it, or pay someone else to do it."
Charles Eisenstein

"How far will your mad lusts take you, ye rich people, till you dwell alone on the earth? Why do you at once turn nature out of doors, and claim the possession of her for your own selves? The land was made for all; why do you rich men claim it as your private property?" St Ambrose
