(Every so often, a great quote is more satisfying than a challenging solve.  This is a fairly long quote, but it wasn’t very difficult.  But, it hits the spot!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Laughter (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

A smile is the light in your window that tells others that there is a caring, sharing person inside.”   —   Denis Waitley

(This first looked like a piece of cake, but it took a bit of work for me to get through it!  But, what a great quote!  Don’t be stingy with your smiles, people.  They can make such a big difference in a person’s day.  Share your smiles freely!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

PS.  Zemanta wasn’t giving out free smiles, grins, etc., so I had to search for laughter.  So strange that they couldn’t come up with a smile that wasn’t owned by Getty!   —   YUR

Life is like a field of newly fallen snow.  Where I choose to walk, every step will show.”   —   Denis Waitley

(Friend of yours, ralis?  Nice iambic pentameter.  I’m guessing that’s why he threw the word “choose” in there.  Unless he’s one of these people who’s completely sold on the assuredness of free will.  It’s certainly a lovely concept.  You just have to be a little naive to take it as an absolute.)   —   YUR

PS.  Here’s another movie recommendation for you guys.  The Conspirator, directed by Robert Redford.  It’s an historical piece about the military tribunal following the assassination of Abraham Lincoln.  The story centers mainly on the lone woman charged as a conspirator, Mary Surratt (Robin Wright).  It’s a little on the dry side, but it’s well written and acted.  Watching it, I was struck by the strong similarities of the prevailing attitudes of Post-9/11 America.  In the movie the wound is still very raw at the time of this so-called trial.  But, it’s reassuring to know that the country did get back to observing the rule of law.  Unfortunately, we are a little slower getting back to valuing this cornerstone of our great nation.  But, a lot of this is by design.  This so-called War on Terrorism just continues to give some people the “authority” to do things as they see fit.  It’s up to us, as American citizens, to demand those rights granted to us by the United States Constitution.  Anyway, it’s rated PG-13, and it’s just a tad over 2 hours (122 minutes).   —   YUR
