Quoting Mr. Einstein...

"Of what is significant in one's own existence one is hardly aware, and it certainly should not bother the other fellow.  What does a fish know about the water in which he swims all his life? 

The bitter and the sweet come from the outside, the hard from within, from one's own efforts.  For the most part I do the thing which my own nature drives me to do.  It is embarrassing to earn so  much respect and love for it.  Arrows of hate have been shot at me too; but they never hit me, because somehow they belonged to another world, with which I have no connection whatsoever. 

I live in that solitude which is painful in youth, but delicious in the years of maturity."
~Albert Einstein

Absolutely wonderful! This too is how I think. I believe that each person creates their own world, and what another's creating in their world is none of your concern, although you should respect it. It's all in the way we perceive. luv ur blog girl!

Oh, Mr. Einstein. You are (were) brilliant. In many ways. Where can I get some of that brilliance? By the way, I had fun reading your most recent blog posts. Lately, I have been very busy with lots of work for my wife's family, so only now have I made the time to catch up on your latest writing. I enjoyed it all. --MikeB
