There is really no such thing as bad weather, only different kinds of good weather.”   —   John Ruskin

(Context and perspective are important in all things.  We can just as easily say that there is no such thing as bad music, only different kinds of good music.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

The highest reward for man’s toil is not what he gets for it, but what he becomes by it.”   —   John Ruskin

(So true!  Some people make boatloads of money, but are complete, despicable tools.  While others toil for so much less, but are loved and respected as great parents, neighbors and friends.  John Ruskin was kind of a 19th century Renaissance man.  We could use more people like him these days.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

You may either win your peace or buy it:  win it, by resistance to evil; buy it, by compromise with evil.”   —   John Ruskin

(Not his best quote, in my opinion.  But, it did make for a fairly challenging solve.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

There is really no such thing as bad weather, only different kinds of good weather.”   —   John Ruskin

(I’ve always thought that people make too big of a deal about weather.  At least as far as it being rainy, or cold, etc., that is.  I just figure we have to take the “bad” to appreciate the “good”.  My complaints mainly come from warm weather that is out of character for the season.  We’re seeing way too much of that, but not enough of us want to take action to curb this.  Eventually, we’ll all pay the price.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
