Weekly Wisdom to Provoke Thought, Encourage Reflection and Inspire Faith

(selected and distributed weekly by Bob Varga, Johns Creek, GA since 1997)

Dedicated to my mother, Marie Varga, who passed away peacefully this Wednesday at the age of 97 after a long illness and a life well-lived, putting others before herself, caring for others and loving life, not things. Our loss is Heaven’s gain. Be well Mom. We will see you down the road.

“Selfishness, self-centeredness! That, we think, is the root of our troubles. Driven by a hundred forms of fear, self-delusion, self-seeking, and self-pity, we step on the toes of our fellows and they retaliate. Sometimes they hurt us, seemingly without provocation, but we invariably find that at some time in the past we have made decisions based on self which later placed us in a position to be hurt. So our troubles, we think, are basically of our own making.”

— Alcoholics Anonymous (the Big Book)

— A.A. Milne, Winnie the Pooh

“With most people disbelief in a thing is founded on a blind belief in some other thing.”

I really love your peaches, wanna shake your tree
