I have just begun to read a book of quotes from Mother Teresa. This one stood out because of what is currently happening politically in our country:

“I believe that politicians spend too little time on their knees. I am convinced that they would be better politicians if they were to do so.”

Many people in our great country are suffering because of the government shutdown. What will happen to the poorest of the poor when rent subsidies are cut off and food stamps disappear?

Just think of all the good she did in this world. Maybe our egotistical president along with our representatives should follow this advice from Mother Teresa. We’d all be better off.

“History repeats itself until people decide not to let it.” – Roxane Gay, The Moments That Mattered, Vogue magazine, November 2018

It’s almost Christmas and here is a quote from the Paper and Packaging Board that appeared in December’s Martha Stewart magazine, to get you thinking about holiday greetings:

– Whether you put paper cards on a table, tape to a door or have a mantel –

“You can’t put an eCard on your mantel.

Holiday wishes are meant to be proudly displayed for all to see throughout the season, but it’s hard to show them off when all of your cards are sitting in you email. With paper’s help, filling your home with warm words and wishes couldn’t be easier.”
