Checking in ................

........................................Louis L'Amour 

Do not let yourself be bothered by the inconsequential.  One has only so much time in this world, so devote it to the work and the people most important to you, to those you love and things that matter. One can waste half a lifetime with people one doesn't really like or doing things when one would be better off somewhere else.

A book is less important for what it says than for what it makes you think.

“Up to a point a person’s life is shaped by environment, heredity, and changes in the world about them. Then there comes a time when it lies within their grasp to shape the clay of their life into the sort of thing they wish it to be. Only the weak blame parents, their race, their times, lack of good fortune or the quirks of fate. Everyone has the power to say, "This I am today. That I shall be tomorrow.

The more one learns, the more he understands his ignorance.

Actually, all education is self-education.  A teacher is only a guide to point out the way, and no school, no matter how excellent, can give you an education.  What you receive is like the outlines in a child's coloring book.  You must fill in the colors yourself.

The sunset was spectacular.  The sky streaked itself with rose and the region of the sun became an indescribable glory.  All my life I have used words, and yet I find times when they are totally inadequate.

Knowledge is like money: to be of value it must circulate, and in circulating it can increase in quantity and, hopefully, in value.


  1. So good Steve....

  2. Thanks for the sharing of these insights. Are they lines from Lamores stories or interview type remarks I wonder….
