CFAME Connection is introducing a fresh way of ending the week. Friday Reflection will be added as an ongoing theme to remind readers to pause and take a deep breath after a busy week.
Quotes have become ubiquitous in social media venues. We are engaged by the wordsmithing and identify with the messages that are captured in short phrases. Quotes span centuries, from the ancient time of Horace: “Begin, be bold and venture to be wise” to Maya Angelou of our century: “I did then what I knew how to do. Now that I know better, I do better.”
Knowing others have overcome challenges gives courage to embrace the unknown possibilities and opportunities waiting around the corner.
So, without further ado, this is your Friday Reflection. A special thank you to Barbara Maynard for the photo entitled: An art installation on a dirt road in the middle of nowhere in Nova Scotia.
“Be an opener of doors.” Ralph Waldo Emerson
I really like the quote by Maya Angelou: “I did then what I knew how to do. Now that I know better, I do better.”; very similar to the common one used today; “if I only knew then what I know now….”; it’s one of the wonderful things of learning; we get to use the new gained knowledge to experience new things and to grow as a person.
Binod Dundararajan says
He who knows, knows not that he knows not;
He who knows not, knows not that he knows.
— Keno Upanishad – ancient Indian scripture.
To keep opening doors is to keep seeking knowledge. Let there be more doors to open.
I agree wholeheartedly, Binod!!!
