Weekly 100 Words – Guiding Us to a Happy Life

It’s time for another addition of Weekly 100 Words! The words I give you this week are very profound, and something to inspire us all.
Weekly 100 Words

As before, this blog-hopping meme is courteous of RuthiReads, click the WoW picture to contribute/see more. here’s a contribution from my currently read:

"Kiss your mom. Hug your dad.
Get a life in which you are generous. Look around at the azaleas making fuschia star bursts in the spring; look at the moon hanging silver in a black sky on a cold night. And, realize that life is glorious, and that you have no business taking it for granted. Care so deeply about its goodness that you want to spread it around. Take the money you would have spent on beers in a bar and give it to charity. Work in a soup kitchen. Tutor…seventh-grader.
All of us want to do well."
– page 23 from A Short Guide to a Happy Life by Anna Quinlen

Exceptional concepts…as Ms. Quinlen says, “if we do not do good, then doing well will never be enough.” It’s something of which to think, and then put into action. What will you do today?
