Cicero, the Roman statesman and philosopher, wrote the following some 2,000 years ago:
THE SIX MISTAKES OF MAN

  1. The delusion that personal gain is made by crushing others.

  2. The tendency to worry about things that cannot be changed or corrected.

  3. Insisting that a thing is impossible because we cannot accomplish it.

  4. Refusing to set aside trivial preferences.

  5. Neglecting development and refinement of the mind, and not acquiring the habit of reading and studying.

  6. Attempting to compel others to believe as we do.

Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that. Hate multiplies hate, violence multiplies violence, and toughness multiplies toughness in a descending spiral of destruction....The chain reaction of evil -- hate begetting hate, wars producing more wars -- must be broken, or we shall be plunged into the dark abyss of annihilation.
--Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. (1929-1968)

Keep learning. Learn more about the computer, crafts, gardening, whatever. Never let the brain idle. "An idle mind is the devil's workshop." And the devil's name is Alzheimer's.

Thought for the day:

"I long to accomplish a great and noble task, but it is my chief duty to accomplish humble tasks as though they were great and noble. The world is moved along not only by the mighty shoves of its heroes but also by the aggregate of the tiny pushes of each honest worker."

Helen Keller
