I often am struck by words and quotes that move me, change me, remind me of a meaningful value, or even provide direction in my life.  In these current times of meaningless and often harmful and negative drivel in our media saturated culture, I’m reminded of simpler times, simple truisms, and people who speak with honor, integrity and for the good of others or our world.  Here are a few that I hope can contribute something to you.
