Quote for the week

I received a TON of interest with my “quote” post.  I received likes and private messages regarding the first one I did.  I have decided to do a weekly post with this subject.

I enjoy reading some quotes that actually make me think about what the actual message is or what I interpret it to be.  Sometimes it is that quote that I remember reading or hearing that makes me say, “I really needed to hear that today.”

I saw this quote, by J.R. Rowling, and it did just that.

“If you want to know what a man’s like, take a good look at how he treats his inferiors, not his equals.”

This is very true.  I was always taught that everyone should be treated the same.  You treat the janitor the same way that you would treat the CEO of a major company.  Never judge anyone by the amount of money that they make, the job that they have, or how big their home is.  I always decide how a person is based on their heart, kindness, and character.  Being nice and kind costs nothing.  It is not the material things that we have in life that determine how we are as a human being.  It is usually the ones that don’t have the most money to spend on material items or the ones that are the busiest that give the most of their time.

I’m not sure who to credit with this photo, but this to me, it shows kindness beyond belief; in my mind anyway.  She looks as if she is definitely NOT a millionaire, but just a kind soul, giving what she has, and sharing her food.

Have a great weekend everyone!

Life is simple:  eat, sleep, handmade
