Blog Your Blessings Sunday
On today's BYB Sunday I'd like to post about the blessings of books in my life. Books have always been important to me since I was young. I've always had a hunger for knowledge, and books sated this ravenous hunger.
I've amassed a large library of books through the years (oh yes, Amazon.com and me are good buddies!), and every year I weed through them and pass many along to others. Since I've been letting go of SO many things lately (as I've written in other posts on other blogs), I've also been winnowing my library once again.
However, I prefer to hold onto CERTAIN books which continue to inspire me. One such book is "Something More...Excavating Your Authentic Self" by Sarah Nan Breathnach. This morning I opened to page 107 which is a chapter on Authentic Success, and I'll share with you two quotes from this chapter which really speak to me, inspire and bless me. May these quotes offer a blessing to you as well.
"The real moment of success is not the moment apparent to the crowd." George Bernard Shaw
"I believe talent is like electricity. We don't understand electricity. We use it. You can plug into it and light up a lamp, keep a heart pump going, light a cathedral, or you can electrocute a person with it. Electricity will do all that. It makes no judgment. I think talent is like that." Maya Angelou
