: : I expect to pass through this world but once. Any good thing therefore that I can do, or any kindness that I can show to any fellow-creature, let me do it now; let me not defer or neglect it, for I shall not pass this way again.
: : (Attributed to Stephen Grellet, Franco-American Quaker, 1773-1855)
: Dear Huggy
: Though I personally disagree with Mr.Gerllet about passing this way but once. I do feel the same as he does about showing not only kindness but love and respect to all of creation in every lifetime we may embrace.
: Thanks for your thoughts, Huggy..keep em coming!
: SSL, Kathleen
I find this quote interesting because you can read it in a number of different ways.....you can see it on the obvious level of no existence after death.....or.....you could read it as returning, but not in the same way, or form. Either way, the sentiment is a good one - do the very best that you can during your time here.
Glad that you are enjoying the 'thoughts'!
