Hello all, hope this finds you well or at least better…wherever and whenever you are. If no one has told you yet today – I love you and YOU ARE AWESOME SAUCE!
So when you think of your friends and family, could you go out today and put together a gift box that showed them how well you truly know them? Their likes, dislikes, interests, passions, fantasy’s and dreams? Honestly, I’m a horrible at buying gifts sometimes. Kyle is a pro! Well yesterday my friend Cyndy sent me a box filled with things that showed me just that…in some ways better than I know myself! Cyndy was Kyle’s family mail carrier when we lived in Middletown DE but more than a mail carrier, she was a friend! She would come over on Halloween with her boys and we’d all go trick-or-treating together. She held similar spiritual beliefs to our own…which is rare in and of itself and unfortunately we got to know her just before we left! Kyle and I were moving to Texas and had two cars….one too many for the trip we were about to make and Kyle decided to give it to Cyndy because she needed it at the time. Yes, another example of how amazing my husband is too. I’m so blessed! Thank you Cyndy for your friendship and this beautiful gesture during a time when “A happy surprise moment” is so sorely needed not just by me….but by the world. I love you!
*I’d forgotten that the first episode of BBC Sherlock, starring one of my favorite leading men Benedict Cumberbatch was “A Study in Pink.” Pink has become my spirit color ever since I noticed it hidden in the colors of the rainbow! The comic, done in traditional manga style, is from Geek Fuel; Steve Moffat, Mark Gatiss Jay. I am not a collector of comics so taking it out of the plastic and actually reading it was ok lol. Pretty cool it’s a limited edition though!
Today would have been my one of my favorite inventors 160th birthday! Nikola Tesla was born on 10 July 1856 and died 7 January 1943. I am seeing a large resurgence in interest about him and his inventions. Energy is wireless and energy is eternal and I’d like to believe he is alive and well in his way somewhere! I think he’d be delighted to know he hasn’t been forgotten and some justice is being done on his behalf for all he went through when he was alive with us!
Nikola Tesla Quotes – in honor of his birthday…some of his own words
This page lists some of Nikola Tesla’s most famous quotes. We have worked hard to include the most Nikola Tesla Quotes possible. These quotes have inspired many people and many inventors. Nikola Tesla had an incredible mind and mindset. His quotes are meaningful and deeply rewarding for those that read them and apply what Nikola Tesla teaches.
“Let the future tell the truth, and evaluate each one according to his work and accomplishments. The present is theirs; the future, for which I have really worked, is mine.”
“I do not think there is any thrill that can go through the human heart like that felt by the inventor as he sees some creation of the brain unfolding to success… Such emotions make a man forget food, sleep, friends, love, everything.”
“My method is different. I do not rush into actual work. When I get a new idea, I start at once building it up in my imagination, and make improvements and operate the device in my mind. When I have gone so far as to embody everything in my invention, every possible improvement I can think of, and when I see no fault anywhere, I put into concrete form the final product of my brain.”
“The practical success of an idea, irrespective of its inherent merit, is dependent on the attitude of the contemporaries. If timely it is quickly adopted; if not, it is apt to fare like a sprout lured out of the ground by warm sunshine, only to be injured and retarded in its growth by the succeeding frost.”
“The scientists of today think deeply instead of clearly. One must be sane to think clearly, but one can think deeply and be quite insane.”
“Before I put a sketch on paper, the whole idea is worked out mentally. In my mind I change the construction, make improvements, and even operate the device. Without ever having drawn a sketch I can give the measurements of all parts to workmen, and when completed all these parts will fit, just as certainly as though I had made the actual drawings. It is immaterial to me whether I run my machine in my mind or test it in my shop. The inventions I have conceived in this way have always worked. In thirty years there has not been a single exception. My first electric motor, the vacuum wireless light, my turbine engine and many other devices have all been developed in exactly this way.”
“Like a flash of lightning and in an instant the truth was revealed. I drew with a stick on the sand the diagrams of my motor. A thousand secrets of nature which I might have stumbled upon accidentally I would have given for that one which I had wrestled from her against all odds and at the peril of my existence.”
“The spread of civilization may be likened to a fire; First, a feeble spark, next a flickering flame, then a mighty blaze, ever increasing in speed and power.”
“The gift of mental power comes from God, Divine Being, and if we concentrate our minds on that truth, we become in tune with this great power.
My Mother had taught me to seek all truth in the Bible.”
“Today’s scientists have substituted mathematics for experiments, and they wander off through equation after equation, and eventually build a structure which has no relation to reality.”
“Our virtues and our failings are inseparable, like force and matter. When they separate, man is no more.”
“If you want to find the secrets of the universe, think in terms of energy, frequency and vibration.”
“I don’t care that they stole my idea . . I care that they don’t have any of their own”
“Fights between individuals, as well as governments and nations, invariably result from misunderstandings in the broadest interpretation of this term. Misunderstandings are always caused by the inability of appreciating one another’s point of view. This again is due to the ignorance of those concerned, not so much in their own, as in their mutual fields. The peril of a clash is aggravated by a more or less predominant sense of combativeness, posed by every human being. To resist this inherent fighting tendency the best way is to dispel ignorance of the doings of others by a systematic spread of general knowledge. With this object in view, it is most important to aid exchange of thought and intercourse.”
“I do not think you can name many great inventions that have been made by married men.”
“Invention is the most important product of man’s creative brain. The ultimate purpose is the complete mastery of mind over the material world, the harnessing of human nature to human needs.”
“Everyone should consider his body as a priceless gift from one whom he loves above all, a marvelous work of art, of indescribable beauty, and mystery beyond human conception, and so delicate that a word, a breath, a look, nay, a thought may injure it.”
“All that was great in the past was ridiculed, condemned, combated, suppressed â€” only to emerge all the more powerfully, all the more triumphantly from the struggle.”
“The individual is ephemeral, races and nations come and pass away, but man remains.”
“From childhood I was compelled to concentrate attention upon myself. This caused me much suffering, but to my present view, it was a blessing in disguise for it has taught me to appreciate the inestimable value of introspection in the preservation of life, as well as a means of achievement. The pressure of occupation and the incessant stream of impressions pouring into our consciousness through all the gateways of knowledge make modern existence hazardous in many ways. Most persons are so absorbed in the contemplation of the outside world that they are wholly oblivious to what is passing on within themselves. The premature death of millions is primarily traceable to this cause. Even among those who exercise care, it is a common mistake to avoid imaginary, and ignore the real dangers. And what is true of an individual also applies, more or less, to a people as a whole.”
Got a couple other things in the mail yesterday to include this postcard from my folks during one of their visits to their favorite burger joint – they promise to take us there when we visit! Your on Mom and Dad – Beer and Burgers!
We got a couple letters from our dear friend Lesley and I won’t go into it because I don’t want to start crying again. Lesley thank you for “writing it out” like you did. I truly felt like I was there and ohhh did it hurt! I want you to know I did some outside time for us afterwards and connected with everything and everyone….lots of tears. I love you!! Write, write, write!! I can’t promise I’ll keep up but I will read, feel, cry and process for both of us….and laugh. The comment you said he made about what to do with him…lighter, gasoline…say he was protesting something sounded just like something he would say! Reading that brought laughter through tears.
This about wraps things up – looking forward to going to the Holistic Fair in the Ft. Worth Stockyards with Kyle today.
