A rice in the field

It rained this Sunday. We stayed home watching one kids movie and 2009 New Year's Concert DVD conducted by Daniel Barenboim. I also spent some time to renew the layout of my blog page. It looked fine to me now. Today is a rainy day again, I decide to do some reading. I am still looking for some good books to read. Please recommend some good books to me, if you got some in mind. I like to read books about life and words of wisdom.

This morning, I opened the book which I bought months ago and I haven't got time to read it seriously yet. I found on bottom of certain pages are some words of wisdom. So inspiring on such a rainy day!

We are the leaves of one branch, the drops of one sea, and the flowers of one garden. ---Jean Batiste Henry Lacordaire

My Note:
1.Yeh, and each person is a rice in the field. This fits very much to the theme of the movie we just watched yesterday " Dr. Seuss' Horton Hears a Who!". In this movie, a big elephant Horton found a speck on a clover. And inside the speck there were millions of little mites living in a village called whoville. A fight between regonizing and denying the existence of littles lives began...
2. While we are big and observing something tiny, Maybe there is someone even bigger watching us.


Shallow men believe in luck. Strong men believe in cause and effect. ----Ralph Waldo Emerson.

My Note: I feel ashamed that I always wish for good luck. I guess "hard work" will be the cause and never mind the effect.

Some more till next time~

Glad to let you know that i will put forward to you my recommendation list at a later stage.

Your note 1 well reflected that we are the world, each one of us like a rice in the field. That's the reason that why we need to care and concern each other so as enrich each other so as to create a better world for everyone.

Your note 2 is a clear indication that there is God in existence, the ultimate mighty ONE, who cares and watching every of His creations.

Thanks and trust the above is of help to you.

and you may draw the analogy
