How beautiful the leaves grow old.  How full of light and color are their last days.”   —   John Burroughs

(No relation to Edgar Rice Burroughs, but a cool dude nonetheless.  He was born and raised right up the road from me, in Roxbury, NY.  And, he really loved the Catskill region.  He had some very influential friends of the time, like John Muir, Thomas Edison, Henry Ford, Jay Gould and Teddy Roosevelt.  Not too shabby.    Check out the little YouTube video below.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

The lure of the distant and the difficult is deceptive.  The great opportunity is where you are.”   —   John Burroughs

Do not despise your own place and hour.  Every place is under the stars, every place is the center of the world.”   —   John Burroughs

(John is one of my homeboys!  Well, adopted home, at least.  He was big in the Catskill and Hudson Valley region of New York.  That’s my current stomping grounds.  A great naturalist.  He could hang with me any time.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

The smallest deed is better than the greatest intention.”   —   John Burroughs

(Talk is cheap, friends.  We need to take action, even if it’s something small or simple.  Sometimes completing these smaller acts can inspire us, and give us the confidence, to try bigger things.  But, there is still value in the smallest acts.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

To treat your facts with imagination is one thing, to imagine your facts is another.”   —   John Burroughs

(Anyway you look at it, I think that this quote sums up FOX News so much better than their tagline: “Fair and Balanced”!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

“A man can fail many times, but he isn’t a failure until he begins to blame someone else.”   —   John Burroughs

(A very good warning/advice.  Fear of failure holds way too many of us back, when in reality it’s all part of learning and growing.  We need to remove the stigma attached to failing and accept it as the valuable part of life that it is.  Blaming others never really helps anyone.  To those who seem to find comfort in it, they are just fooling themselves.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
