    "For attractive lips, speak words of kindness.
    For lovely eyes, seek out the good in people.
    For a slim figure, share your food with the hungry.
    For beautiful hair, let a child run his/her fingers through
    it once a day.
    For poise, walk with the knowledge that you never walk alone.
    People, even more than things, have to be restored, renewed, revived, reclaimed and redeemed; never throw out anyone.
    Remember, if you ever need a helping hand,
    you will find one at the end of each of your arms...
    As you grow older, you will discover that you have two hands, one for helping yourself, and the other for helping others."
    Sam Levenson

    "Truth is,
    everybody is going to hurt you;
    you just gotta find the ones worth suffering for."
    Bob Marley

    A little bit of funny sarcasm never hurt anybody and sometimes it even clears the air, to establish a better understanding!
    If I ever upset someone with one of my subtle sarcastic remarks, I feel good about it, because then I know, that I reached the other person, to make them think!
    Sometimes, if you talk to people in a normal "regular way", they don't understand you or maybe they do not listen!
    But as soon, as it gets a little personal..., their ears go up in attention!
    Some people are either slightly stunned or they get back at you right away, to straighten you out !
    All in all, it keeps communication alive and all over sudden it makes everything much more interesting! ;-) Hartmut Reinsch ©

    "Lead me, follow me, or get out of my way!"
    - General George Patton

    Better to fight for something than live for nothing.

    - Karl Von Clausewitz- German Military Strategist

    in fear, anger, or in rushing.

    May the road rise up to meet you.
    May the wind be always at your back.

    the rains fall soft upon your fields and until we meet again, may God hold you in the palm of His hand.

    ~*Guardian Angel*~
    With a guardian angel by my site
    is what it was to be.
    Sometimes I felt a tender touch,
    although I could not see.
    Before too long I did find out
    why I had steered away
    from my old path that I was on,
    before I went astray.
    Written by Homeland and Firefighter- Poet Hartmut Reinsch © 1992 / Toronto

    There are many signs in our life,
    but we are blinded by the way of the world.
    Written by Homeland and Firefighter- Poet Hartmut Reinsch © 1992 / Toronto

    ~*Taking the blame!*~
    It takes a weak person
    to hand out blame to everybody,
    not to reveal their own shortcomings.
    And a very strong person
    to live with it and carry it,
    knowing and admitting:
    they are at fault.
    To take the blame for others
    takes a person of outstanding character
    in an unselfish mission to do right
    and protecting the lost and weak.
    Truly, this is a noble ability,
    and a very rare one.
    Written by Homeland and Firefighter- Poet

    To be human
    does not mean
    to have humility.
    But if you have humility,
    it can make you a better human being.

    ~*Your Heart Will Tell!*~
    You will never know
    the loss of your heart,
    until your heart tells you
    of all the emptiness within it.
    Then in the quiet of your own thoughts
    your inner self will become part of you, as a person,
    and your mind will be as clear as spring water,
    and your thoughts will be
    from your heart and soul.

    Only when these three are united
    will you then shed the true tears of sorrow.

    The soul is all of you,
    the thoughts are part of you,
    but only your heart makes you a beautiful person,
    or a very ugly one.
    Written by Homeland and Firefighter- Poet

    The Spirit of a person lives on in time..., only the word's said to one another will blow away with the wind..., but the written word lives on forever. Hartmut Reinsch © Toronto / CANADA

    The Wise Man believes profoundly in silence - the sign of a perfect equilibrium. Silence is the absolute poise or balance of body, mind and spirit. The man who preserves his self hood ever calm and unshaken by the storms of existence - not a leaf, as it were, astir on the tree, not a ripple upon the surface of the shinning pool - his, in the mind of the unlettered sage, is the ideal attitude and conduct of life.
    Silence is the absolute poise or balance of body, mind and spirit.
    The man who preserves his self-hood is ever calm and unshaken by the storms of existence ... What are the fruits of silence?
    They are self-control, true courage or endurance, patience, dignity and reverence. Silence is the cornerstone of character.
    ~ Ohiyesa, Wahpeton Santee Sioux

    "Religion is for
    people who are
    afraid of going
    to hell.

    Spirituality is
    for those who
    have already
    been there."
    ~ Vine Deloria, Sioux

    In the end, only three things matter: how much you loved, how gently you lived, and how gracefully you let go of things not meant for you.
    ~ Buddha

    I don't like to commit myself about heaven and hell - you see, I have friends in both places.
    ~ Mark Twain

    That friend that is with you in darkest time..., didn't pay their electric bill either!

    We shall never feel hesitant to wish all people a MERRY CHRISTMAS!
    For all our fallen in every conflict fought for our Freedom to express ourselves,
    for everything we believe in. Hartmut Reinsch © 25. 12 2014

    Don't worry about shit..., in a hundred years it's all over anyway and no one will really give a shit either or even cares! ~ Life goes one..., so go with the flow and make the best you can out of each moment and of every day !

    The difference between heaven and Hell is......:

    is where the police are British,
    the cooks Italian,
    the mechanics German,
    the lovers French,
    and all is organized by the Swiss.

    Sand into Pearls
    and Coal into Diamonds
    using Time and Pressure
    He's working on you too.
