Quote(s) of the Day {special Audrey Hepburn edition}:

“For beautiful eyes, look for the good in others; for beautiful lips, speak only words of kindness; and for poise, walk with the knowledge that you are never alone.”

“Your heart just breaks, that's all. But you can't judge, or point fingers. You just have to be lucky enough to find someone who appreciates you.”

“People, even more than things, have to be restored, renewed, revived, reclaimed, and redeemed; never throw out anyone.”

“A quality education has the power to transform societies in a single generation, provide children with the protection they need from the hazards of poverty, labor exploitation and disease, and given them the knowledge, skills, and confidence to reach their full potential.” [as a future teacher, naturally, I had to include this one XD ]

“I love people who make me laugh. I honestly think it's the thing I like most, to laugh. It cures a multitude of ills. It's probably the most important thing in a person.”

Fact of the Day:

The number of Japanese living past 100 has more than doubled in the last six years, reaching a record high of 36,000 people in 2008. The country's centenarian ranks are dominated by women, who make up 86 percent of the total.

What's holding us back?

Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths,
but only what is helpful for building others up according to
their needs,
that it may benefit those who listen.

Ephesians 4:29 (NIV)


Let's be good to each other,
let's be kind,
let's be fun,
let's be laughter,
let's be beauty,
let's be song & lyrics,
let's be forgiveness,

The Office

Quote of the Day:

Michael Scott: Last week I would've given a kidney to anyone in this office. I would've reached right into my stomach and pulled it out for them. But now, no. I don't have the relationship with these people that I thought I did. I hope they ask, so they can hear me say, "Uh, no, I only give my organs to my real friends. Go get yourself a monkey kidney."

Fact of the Day:
Many of the famous insert shots from the original series such

Quote of the Day:
"Can we change the world? No, but hell, we can all try."
Rupert Murdoch

Fact of the Day:
Florentine artist Leonardo da Vinci (1452-1519) took his favorite painting, the "Mona Lisa" (1503-1506, Louvre, Paris), everywhere with him. One of the most celebrated portraits ever painted, it is also known as "La Gioconda," after the presumed name of the woman's husband. Although there have been many theories about the origin of the inexplicable smile on the woman's face, it was probably just the result of Leonardo's interest in natural "chiaroscuro" (the effect of light and shadow on the subject).
