A leader is best when he is neither seen nor heard, not so good when he is adored and glorified, worst when he is hated and despised.  But of a good leader, when his work is done, his aim fulfilled, the people will say, “We did this ourselves.”
   —    Lao-Tzu
[If you elect an amoral con-man to be your President and he drives the country into deeper debt, continues to destroy the middle-class by transferring wealth to the top 1% and who engages in off-the-cuff twitter diplomacy, perhaps we should remind ourselves that “elections have consequences” and modify Lao-Tzu’s quote to: “We did this TO ourselves.”   —    KMAB]

Hi Princess,
Here’s three quotes for your birthday:
I expect to pass through life but once.  If therefore, there be any kindness I can show, or any good thing I can do to any fellow being, let me do it now, and not defer or neglect it, as I shall not pass this way again.
  —  William Penn
[Today counts!]
Kindness in words creates confidence.  Kindness in thinking creates profoundness.  Kindness in giving creates love.
  —  Lao-Tzu
[People matter!]
Keep hope alive!
  —  Rev. Jesse Jackson
[Faith restores!]
Happy Birthday!
We love you always,
Mum and Dad

Simplicity, patience, compassion.
These three are your greatest treasures.
Simple in actions and thoughts, you return to the source of being.
Patient with both friends and enemies,
you accord with the way things are.
Compassionate toward yourself,
you reconcile all beings in the world.
   ―   Lao Tzu
[I find the struggle to be “compassionate toward yourself” to be a lifetime objective.   I guess that’s just the cowboy in me.   —    KMAB]
