Simply Saturday

"Love is not blind - it sees more, not less. 
But because it sees more, it is willing to see less."
— Rabbi Julius Gordon

This is an animated GIF.  Click on the picture to see the effect.  I think even God would smile at this one.

"The reward for conformity was that 
everyone liked you except yourself."

— Rita Mae Brown

On the mountains of truth you can never climb in vain: 
either you will reach a point higher up today, 
or you will be training your powers 
so that you will be able to climb higher tomorrow."

Friedrich Nietzsche


  1. a nice trip through italy and love the wink from rio! where is the picture taken with the old sail boat at the bottom of a cliff with beautifully perched houses? it looks like it could be eastern europe with the terrassed vineyards? ... and my favorite quote: it's not who you are that hold you back but who you think you're not .... i've come to a sensational and mental/emotional understanding of that this week. I say: HOW TRUE!

  2. :D what Rabbi Julius Gordon says about love is true! and it's so freeing to love in that way... the right way.

  3. I just wanted you to know how much I look forward to your "Simply Saturday" posts.

  4. Becoming: Amalfi Coast. On my bucket list. :)
    Sounds like you've had a good week!

    Elliot: Amen.

    Beck: So glad. It's really become a labor of love.

  5. The Abp Tutu quote is the best; God's tremendous head-over-heels love for us. Thanks again for adding to my Saturday!

  6. David: Yes! THIS is the good news of the gospel ... as opposed to other messages that obscure this crucial fact (like "Families can be together forever"). You're welcome!

  7. I love your Simply Saturday's. Where on earth do you find the all of the amazing quotes and photos? It's all very inspiration. Thank you!

  8. That's supposed to say inspirational. :)

  9. Thanks, Heather! What can I say, I'm a troll. I troll certain sites, looking for pictures and quotes that appeal to me. I've grown to love doing this, i.e., putting together these posts.
