LEON'S FAVORITE QUOTES

 

 Image Credit: Flickr, Kasia Trapszo

wise sayings are not meant to be practised,

they're only opinions and guidelines to thoughts.

They aren't dogmatic beliefs.

a person can change his opinions about everything, whenever he likes.

 

Some sayings appear to be wise,

others are plainly nonsense,

but these are things I have thought about

or  I've heard tourists say

while visiting so called holy places of Israel

the main purpose of writing or doing most things

is to give others pleasure.

So if I've given you some pleasure I have been rewarded for my efforts.

The Bible

Many peoples will come and say,

"Come, let us go up to the mountain of the LORD,

to the temple of the God of Jacob.

He will teach us his ways, so that we may walk in his paths." 

 

the law will go out from Zion, the word of the LORD from Jerusalem. Isaiah 2:3

 

Pirke Avot (Jewish Book of Ethics)quotes

 

Everything is in the hands of God, excepting the fear of God. 

 

My friend's quotes Interpretation: (By my friend Sid Gordon) 

 

God doesn't make decisions for man (like being righteous or wicked)

every person makes his or her own decisions in life.

God allows this because He does not force anyone to be righteous and holy or to be wicked.

Man is responsible for these decisions.

 

Candy 

Always be willing to let go of the life you had planned,

so as to have the life that is waiting for you.

 

My Quotes:

 

Be patient with people,

everybody, especially those close to you.

People need time to come round to think about what they have said or done. 

 

People will criticise themselves

much more fiercly and effectively

than you can ever do, but you need patience untill they think about the things they've done or said. 

Social order is maintained by the spread of myths

which Plato calls "Noble LIes and

maimonides calls "necessary and useful beliefs."

Jews pray at the wall for God not to destroy the world

just as people sleep in the darkness and dream

Leon's War quotes 

 

We’ll win the war when we stop fighting. 

"you move to violence by

blaming someone for nonsense.

You move people to peace by not blaming anyone." 

 

Leon's quotes about Jesus 

 

Sat 14th Nov 09

Robert Browning. My last duchess

She had

A heart . . . how shall I say? . . . too soon made glad,

Too easily impressed; she liked whate'er

She looked on, and her looks went everywhere.
