Like Many People, jeff noel Loves Quotes, But Uses Them Sparingly

St Augustine, Florida lighthouse shadow, May 26, 2011. Our character is a directional beacon (or not).

Who doesn’t love quotes. But what jeff noel has discerned is eventually we ought to start saying what we believe, in our own words. It forces us to understand the quote even more. Here’s one worth sharing:

Your genuine action will explain itself, and will explain your other genuine actions. Your conformity explains nothing. The force of character is cumulative. – Ralph Waldo Emerson, Self-Reliance

My version of Emerson’s quote: When our children start looking for the face of God in the real world, they shouldn’t have to look farther than across the dinner table.

Who would have thought it would take 30 years to get started?
