July’s favourite quotes

For a while now, every Sunday night I have been sharing a quote on my Everyday Delights Facebook page that inspired me in the past week, along with a story and one of my photographs.

Manifesto for a simple life

2nd July Manifesto for a simple life

I’m working on some, but not all. Do I need to say more!


Sometime our light goes out

9th July “Sometimes our light goes out but is blown again into instant flame by an encounter with another human being” [Albert Schweitzer]

I have to say that I had some experiences like this last week at the National AMESA conference of mathematics educators. There are many inspirational and passionate teachers in this country.


"Don't let yesterday take up too much of today" [Will Rogers]

16th July “Don’t let yesterday take up too much of today” [Will Rogers]

I have to admit that I tend to spend more time in the future. But this is a good reminder for me to try and live in the present. Do you spend too much time thinking about the past or future, or have you managed to get the hang of being in the present?


There is nothing like staying at home for real comfort

23rd July “There is nothing like staying at home for real comfort” [Jane Austen]

I tend to agree, especially when I’ve been travelling a lot. I miss and love my own bed more than anything. What do you miss when you are away from home?


Also by the heart quote

“We know truth not only by reason, but also by the heart” [Blaise Pascal]
Lovely words for this week’s quote.
