Life

“Act as if what you do makes a difference. It does.”

“The art of being wise is the art of knowing what to overlook.”

“We are all ready to be savage in some cause. The difference between a good man and a bad one is the choice of the cause.”

William James, American psychologist and philosopher (11 January 1842-1910)

“Agisci come se quello che fai facesse la differenza. Perché la fa.”

“L’arte di essere saggi è l’arte di capire  a cosa si può passar sopra.”

“Siamo tutti pronti ad essere feroci per qualche causa. La differenza tra un uomo buono e uno cattivo è la scelta della causa.”

  1. A very thoughtful choice of thoughts. I am left with: “We are ready to be wild for some cause. The difference between a good man and a bad man is the choice of cause.”
    People can choose between being good or bad, depending on what is or is not socially accepted. The photo cannot go unnoticed. A beauty.A hug Luisa.

    1. It is called Dandelion (Taraxacum ) and what you see in the photo is not the flower, which is yellow, but its the spherical seed head , into which the flower head has matured

      Dandelions remind me of my childhood and bring back memories of making wishes while blowing the seeds away in the wind.😘❣️

      1. Oh yes, I loved that too. Blowing the seeds into the wind, wondering where they would go. In my childhood we used to go to the meadows to get young dandelion leaves. They are quite good as a salad (bitter, though) with warm potatoes and Austrian pumpkin oil … thanks for those great quotes. And how true they are!

  2. “Agisci come se quello che fai facesse la differenza. Perché la fa.”

    Assolutamente vero, bisogna rendersi conto che il nostro agire deve sempre essere responsabile e mirato al miglioramento della situazione precedente.
    Sia in ambito familiare, che lavorativo, che sociale.
    In questo periodo di pandemia e grigiore, poi, ogni nostra azione assume un significato anche maggiore.
