“EDUCATION SHOULD BE FREE–IT PROVIDES BENEFITS TO ALL OF SOCIETY” ~ Joyce Fields

 

My Simple Quotes - GSB - Amazon(excerpted from “My Simple Quotes to Live By” – available at http://www.amazon.com [available on Kindle, too!] and http://www.GoodShortBooks.com)

 

 

For “lower education,”–elementary school, middle school, and high school–it’s all free, or at least paid for by the taxes that we all pay.

But when it comes to college or “higher education,” that costs a bundle and can send a family into the “poor house.”

It stands to reason that, like “lower education,” “higher education” should also be free. All of society benefits when the entire population is well educated.

It lowers the level of ignorance. And, God knows, the world could sure use a lower level of ignorance!

“IF YOU’RE NOT THE PERFECT MAN, STOP LOOKING FOR THE PERFECT WOMAN.  IF YOU’RE NOT THE PERFECT WOMAN, STOP LOOKING FOR THE PERFECT MAN.” ~ Joyce Fields

You often hear men speaking of what they consider to be the “perfect” woman.  She doesn’t exist.  It’s a figment of their imaginations.  Whatever woman a man gets, she will have faults, weaknesses, idiosyncrasies, etc.

“LEARN TO BE HAPPY NOW, NOT ‘WHEN. . .’” ~ Joyce Fields

 

My Simple Quotes - GSB - Amazon(excerpted from “My Simple Quotes to Live By” – available at http://www.amazon.com [available on Kindle, too!] and http://www.GoodShortBooks.com)

 

 

A lot of people say things, such as:

• “I’ll be happy ‘when I get a new job.’”
• “I’ll be happy ‘when I get married.’”
• “I’ll be happy ‘when I get a new house.’”
• “I’ll be happy ‘when I get divorced.’”
• “I’ll be happy ‘when my ship comes in.’”
• “I’ll be happy ‘when I hit the lottery.’”

They have not learned that happiness is not a destination. It is a state of mind; an attitude. It comes from within. Most people who have peace of mind, are happy, positive people. They are grateful people.

They are already happy–regardless of their circumstances!

We should all go about the business of learning that!

“HOW CAN A PERSON HATE OTHERS AND CLAIM TO LOVE GOD AT THE SAME TIME?” ~ Joyce Fields

 

My Simple Quotes - GSB - Amazon(excerpted from “My Simple Quotes to Live By” – available at http://www.amazon.com [available on Kindle, too!] and http://www.GoodShortBooks.com)

In every religion, hate goes against all that God stands for. God IS love. There is no good reason to hate others because they are different from us. Embrace the differences.

The world would be a much better place if we replace hate with love!

“IF YOU CREATE GOOD ONES, MEMORIES CAN WARM YOUR HEART FOREVER.” ~ Joyce Fields

 

My Simple Quotes - GSB - Amazon(excerpted from “My Simple Quotes to Live By” – available at http://www.amazon.com [available on Kindle, too!] and http://www.GoodShortBooks.com).

Most of us don’t really think about it, but, as we live our lives from day to day, we are creating memories–especially for the children in our lives.  Remember. . .

The special times when your mother read or sang to you as you fell off to sleep.

The smell of a relative’s house when she baked cookies or prepared some other delicious food.

The way that grandma tended to your scraped knee.

The times when you and your father went to the barber shop so you and he could get a haircut.

What good memories are you creating?

My Simple Quotes to Live By – Week of June 1, 2014

“SLEEP IS A WONDERFUL THING; YOU SELDOM WAKE UP FEELING AS BAD AS THE NIGHT BEFORE.” ~ Joyce Fields

 

My Simple Quotes - GSB - Amazon(excerpted from “My Simple Quotes to Live By” – available at http://www.amazon.com [available on Kindle, too!] and http://www.GoodShortBooks.com)

God did a fantastic thing when He (or She!) created sleep!! The phrase, “sleep on it,” has profound meaning, because when you wake up, you are in a clearer, more calm state of mind.

When you don’t feel well, the advice that is most often given is, “get some rest” (which means “get some sleep”). When you wake up the next day, you usually feel much better.

Thank you, God, for creating sleep!!
