In Others’ Words: Everydays

Beth Vogt Fun, In Others' Words, quote about life 14 Comments

One ought to everyday…Von Goethe. 2014

I remember seeing this quote and thinking, “This would make a good quote for a Friday post.”

It’s not so, so serious, and yet, it’s a good quote. One worth pondering.

How do we spend our “everydays”? 

Do we take time for a little song? A good poem? A fine picture? Do we make the effort to speak a few reasonable words?

And here’s another thought: What would you add to Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe’s list?

One ought, everyday at least, to ________________________. How would you fill in the blank?

I’ll go first: One ought, everyday at least, to find a few moments of solitude.

In Your Words: How have your “everydays” been lately? What have you heard or read or seen or spoken that has been memorable? And how would you finish the sentence: One ought, everyday at least, to ____________________________.

      1. I guess you do know me!

        It does sound grimmer than it is. Concentrating on survival through physical adversity forces one to live in the moment, and even the most painful moments bring gifts.

        Heightened compassion is one of them. When you’re living through something you wouldn’t wish on an enemy, you have to consider what makes – and heals – emnity, at least in one’s own heart.

  1. One ought, everyday at least, to try to make someone else smile. Trust me, by the end of that, you’d both be smiling, and you can’t really go wrong with a smile.

    Blessings,
    Andrea

  2. …speak words of grace, show simple kindness, and laugh out loud, as often as possible. It’s one of the best ways to breathe.

    As to something memorable: I just finished reading Chris Fabry’s, June Bug and am still mulling over the sadness and sweetness of a story well told. It’s a keeper.

  3. I’m working hard on having those “stop and smell the roses” moments every day. Time goes by too fast to not take full advantage of each minute:)
