    Motivational Quote/Word/Song/Videos of the Day- 30 Sep 2008 


    MOTIVATIONAL QUOTE OF THE DAY

    Superfluous wealth can buy superfluities only. Money is not required to buy one necessary of the soul.”

    Henry David Thoreau (1817-1862). U.S. philosopher, author, naturalist. “Conclusion,” Walden (1854).

    THE BEATLES- CAN’T BUY ME LOVE  ********This I know from the depths of my soul–it is love, not money that makes me whole.  Oh money can buy me many things; fancy cars diamond rings, a house on a hill, or a fur to chase chill, but what good is all of that if I have no one to love?   Sure, I’d have momentary bouts of happiness, but for me?  I’d choose love any day.*******

    WORD OF THE DAY

    SUPERFLUOUS

    (adjective)
    [soo-PUR-floo-ahs]

    1. more than is needed, desired, or required: “Ryan is so introverted, that I feel superfluous whenever I spend time with him.”

    adverb form: superfluously
    noun form: superfluousness


    Origin:
    Approximately 1380; from Latin, ‘superfluus’: unnecessary, literally, overflowing, from ‘superfluere’: to overflow (‘super’: over + ‘fluere’: to flow).

    In action:
    “Is it not superfluous to write more than one novel if the writer has not become, say, a new man? Obviously, all the novels of an author not infrequently belong together and are to a certain degree only one novel.”

    Friedrich Von Schlegel (1772-1829). German philosopher.

    Superfluous wealth can buy superfluities only. Money is not required to buy one necessary of the soul.”

    Henry David Thoreau (1817-1862). U.S. philosopher, author, naturalist. “Conclusion,” Walden (1854).

     

    ANDREA BOCCELLI- BESAME MUCHO  *******When words become superfluous…besame…besame mucho.*******

    SONG OF THE DAY

    ANGUS & JULIA STONE- JUST A BOY  *******I like this song.  It’s so adorable when a woman can make a man feel like a boy in love and he admits to it.  It only makes us love you more fellas!*******

    Motivational Quote/Word/Song/Videos of the Day- 29 Sep 2008 


    MOTIVATIONAL QUOTE OF THE DAY

    “Remember, you will only receive what you truly expect, not what you only wish for.”              -Bob Proctor

    THE PIERCES- THREE WISHES  *******This is a gorgeous song.  This quote goes back to “thoughts become things” because we may wish for something until we’re blue in the face, but what we think will happen is what actually comes to pass.  Watch your thoughts; they’re far more powerful than you think they are.*******

    3. (as in meteorology) subject to extremes; not mild; ‘an intemperate climate’; ‘intemperate zones’

    Doug Smith. “New Raptor James ready for change,” The Toronto Star (October 6, 2005).
