Standards

I can’t believe that this has been sat in my inbox for six years. That speaks a lot to the simplicity and strength of the sentiment.

“The standard you walk past is the standard you accept.”

This came from the Chief of the Australian Army, Lt Gen David Morrison, as a publicly released address to the Australian Armed Forces. This address was prompted by the findings of investigations into allegations of unacceptable behaviour by Army members.

Hands of God

The Christmas special of the Call the Midwife i always guaranteed to bring out a warm inner glow. As usual it it Sister Monica Joan who steals the show in the 2017 Special while talking to the atheist Valerie:

“Often the hands of God are found at the end of our own arms.”

The Egg

A wonderful short story from Andy Weir, The Egg, all summed up in this quote:

“Every time you victimized someone,” I said, “you were victimizing yourself. Every act of kindness you’ve done, you’ve done to yourself. Every happy and sad moment ever experienced by any human was, or will be, experienced by you.”

In less than 5 minutes you can be enlightened. A very real Golden Rule.

Say Something

Just a little note of something that I need to remember:

“If people are choosing between saying something and saying nothing, they’re almost always better off saying something.”
Emily McDowell via The Art of Non-Conformity.

Emily has created around 2,000 cards that aren’t full of platitudes, and realise that there isn’t always a good way to say hard things.

No good card

Technicolor

“If you are going to live your life in Technicolor, then you have to expect some spilled paint.” Air Commodore John Oddie (Retd.)
