Buddha, Confucius and Franklin


There is nothing more dreadful than the habit of doubt.
Doubt separates people.
It is a poison that disintegrates friendships
And breaks up pleasant relations.
It is a thorn that irritates and hurts;
It is a sword that kills.


Life is really simple,
But we insist on making it complicated.


Life’s Tragedy is that we get old too soon and wise too late.
Benjamin Franklin
Inspiration can come from many places, but I have found few sources as consistent as the words of Buddha,Confucius and Ben Franklin.  Completely different men from greatly varied times saying much of the same things.  I am grateful for the bits of wisdom they left behind for me to benefit from.
Too bad people can’t switch problems
because nobody knows how to solve their own problems,
but they always know how to solve another’s.
