Reflections on Personal Growth à la Rogue River

Today I want to share some peaceable reflections about who we are as people…what makes us good, happy, and a blessing:

overhanging-trees-along-the-rogue-river“I am beginning to learn that it is the sweet, simple things of life
which are the real ones after all.”~Laura Ingalls Wilder  turtle-sunning-himself-on-rock-in-rogue-river “There is only one time when it is essential to awaken. That time is now.” ~Buddha alan-in-canoe“Who, being loved, is poor?” ~Oscar Wilde  canoeing-under-a-canopy-of-green-along-the-rogue-river“What you leave behind is not what is engraved in stone monuments,
but what is woven into the lives of others.” ~Pericles leaf-drifting-on-water “It’s not what you look at that matters, it’s what you see.”
~Henry David Thoreau  reid-splashing-in-rogue-river “Let no one ever come to you without leaving better and happier.”
~Mother Teresa  happy-young-canoeist “A smile is the shortest distance between two people.” ~Victor Borge

canoeing-on-rogue-river-bridge “To laugh often and much; to win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children; to earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends; to appreciate beauty; to find the best in others; to leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch or a redeemed social condition; to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is to have succeeded.”  ~Ralph Waldo Emerson

above-reflected-below-on-rogue-river “Happiness is when what you think, what you say, and what you do
are in harmony.”~ Mahatma Gandhi  sunshine-on-grandson-on-rogue-river“Happy is he that hath the God of Jacob for his help,
whose hope is in the Lord his God”
(Psalm 146:5).

    Hi Kathi,

    I wanted to comment on your post today but the sight for commenting did not come up (said unavailable??)

    So I’m emailing as this post is very special to me. If Brett were still with us, he would have loved this post – all the quotes by famous people and the great shots you have of the Rogue River, which he and his children (our whole family) canoed many times.

    Thank you so much for this post – I’m enjoying the post for myself and I love thinking/remembering Brett in this way. I’m saving it to my save file.

    A faithful blog reader and friend,
    Love,
    Charylene
