What I Learned from Priming a Pump | Barbara Talley's Blog

The great art to learn much is to undertake a little at a time.”   —   John Locke

(Especially when you’re learning something that is brand new to you!  The human brain is capable of learning so much, but sometimes you have to prime the pump . . . to get things to flow.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Happy birthdays to both Naomi Judd and to Mary J. Blige!  (As strange a pairing as I’ve ever made!)

IMAGINE - John Lennon | John lennon quotes, Imagine john lennon, Soundtrack  to my life

To give a man full knowledge of morality, I would send him to no other book than the New Testament.”   —   John Locke

(Because . . . God knows . . . you wouldn’t want to send him the Old Testament!  Nothing but begetting, and smiting, and magical nonsense going on in that old thing.  At the very least, the N.T. concentrates more on love and forgiveness.  All offense, but I’d rather have a nice John Lennon quote, any day.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

The actions of men are the best interpreters of their thoughts.”   —   John Locke

(A continuation on the action theme!  Maybe Rebecca is upset, or frustrated, with a significant other, being all talk and no action!  Who knows?  Today’s was a little tough for me, as my newspaper split it up kind of funny.  The first two letters of BEST started on line one, and continued on line two.  Then, the word THOUGHTS started on line two, and continued onto line three.  And, I had to make a semi-logical assumption on the author’s last name too.  Hope I was correct!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Reading furnishes the mind only with materials of knowledge; it is thinking that makes what we read ours.”   —   John Locke

(I’m guessing that Locke is referring more to critical thinking.  You can’t very well read anything without thinking, can you?  Critical thought makes the facts meaningful.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
