Day with a Difference – 18-Oct-12

Quote of the day
“Kind words can be short and easy to speak, but their echoes are truly endless.” ― Mother Teresa

Thought of the day
In the Solomon Islands in the south Pacific some villagers practice a unique form of logging. If a tree is too large to be felled with an ax, the natives cut it down by yelling at it. Woodsmen with special powers creep up on a tree just at dawn and suddenly scream at it at the top of their lungs. They continue this for thirty days. The tree dies and falls over. The theory is that the hollering kills the spirit of the tree. According to the villagers, it always works.

We educated folks yell at traffic and umpires and bills and banks and machines–especially machines. Machines and relatives get most of the yelling. Don’t know what good it does. As for people, well, the Solomon Islanders may have a point. Yelling at living things does tend to kill the spirit in them. Sticks and stones may break our bones, but words will break our hearts….

Joke of the day
Two guys are walking down the street when a mugger approaches them and demands their money. They both grudgingly pull out their wallets and begin taking out their cash. Just then one guy turns to the other and hands him a bill. "Here’s that $20 I owe you," he says
Have a great day!
