sunday inspirations...thought diversity  

Posted by SjP in

We don't all think alike. We don't all view the world in the same manner. We don't all like the same things. Is that wrong? I, of course, think not. It is that diversity of thought - that diversity of who we are that gives us the foundation to become better. Diversity is not something to be feared; but rather embraced as we travel this road called life.

The following quotes and video pretty much say it all.

"It were not best that we should all think alike;it is difference of opinion that makes horse races." Mark Twain

"We have become not a melting pot but a beautiful mosaic. Different people, different beliefs, different yearnings, different hopes, different dreams." Jimmy Carter

"Variety is the spice of life." Proverb

"Life lies in diversity, not in monotony." M.K. Soni, from LIFE IS LIKE A MULTIFACETED PRISM

"If we cannot end now our differences, at least we can help make the world safe for diversity." John F. Kennedy

"Diversity is not about how we differ. Diversity is about embracing one another's uniqueness." Ola Joseph

"At bottom every man knows well enough that he is a unique being, only once on this earth; and by no extraordinary chance will such a marvelously picturesque piece of diversity in unity as he is, ever be put together a second time." Friedrich Nietzsche

"If we are to achieve a richer culture, rich in contrasting values, we must recognize the whole gamut of human potentialities, and so weave a less arbitrary social fabric, one in which each diverse human gift will find a fitting place." Margaret Mead


Sunday Inspirations, is the meme created in honor of my Mother for Mother's Day 2008 and is just one way to help get us through the week ahead, the trials we may face, and yes, to say Thank Ya and testify! I hope that you participate and share with us your Sunday Inspirations. Your weekly contribution may very well be the inspiration that someone else may need and has been looking for.

Obliged to you for hearing me,
and now old SjP ain't got nothin' more to say...
