Great Quote: Leo Buscaglia

The majority of us lead quiet, unheralded lives as we pass through this world. There will most likely be no ticker-tape parades for us, no monuments created in our honor. But that does not lessen our possible impact, for there are scores of people waiting for someone just like us to come along; people who will appreciate our compassion, our unique talents. Someone who will live a happier life merely because we took the time to share what we had to give. Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have a potential to turn a life around. It's overwhelming to consider the continuous opportunities there are to make our love felt. - Leo Buscaglia

I have always loved Leo's wisdom. I found this quote in the sidebar of a blog this morning. I had to post it here to make it easier for me to read and reread. I love it when words just strike me like that, changing the day in an instant. Not that today has been bad, it has actually started and continued very nicely. However, now it has more of a glowy sense of purpose haze about it.

I was just thinking, today, how fleeting life quickly changed or lost...but it doesn't have to be, does it?

A day can feel like a million years and a lifetime can feel like a couple of hours. It's that simple and that hard.
