So you're what?? 19
I am sooo jealous! What I wouldn't give to be 19 again and know what I know now!
I remember that day vividly...and the sick feeling I had in my stomach as I stood glued to the television watching as the 2nd plane hit the second tower. It would have been nice to have been 8 and not understood what was occurring. The misfortune, today, is that a lot of people, who now vote, didn't understand what happened that day either.
I'm sure most of us would love to be younger than we are if we could be younger and have the knowledge we now have, but that's the catch and one of the good things about growing older- gaining knowledge....but would I want to be 19 again knowing only what I knew at 19?

No thanks!

In my view, it's all about empathy, which gives us understanding and compassion.

No gods are required for this.

Did he not also blame the Katrina catastrophe in New Orleans on the libertine attitudes of that city?

First said by George Bernard Shaw......

Great story about Shaw:

Perhaps you've heard of the famous dancer Isadora Duncan.

She was quite a risque dancer for her time and was quite the beauty as well who became enamored with Shaw.

She wrote him a letter proposing they have a child together because she said that with her looks and Shaw's brain, they would have quite the perfect child together.

Shaw replied: But Madam, what if he has MY looks and YOUR brains?

Ummm...... in as much as forewarned is forearmed, I'd only want to be 19 again if I knew what I know now and not even 19- 21 would be better- legal drinking age and all......

;-)

But hey- I am SO young in mind, heart and spirit that I've kind of trained my body to keep pace with my mind, heart and spirit- LOL!

True...no God is required for empathy. But I believe empathy will only go so far if we don't have love, which is actually what I think it's all about. Not a friendly or lustful love, but one that is selfless, sacrificial, and unconditional. Do you believe anyone can have that kind of love for others?

Well do tell your secret! My mind, heart, and spirit are like 21....but training my body to keep pace is quite the challenge. Looking the part...I'm holding my own....feeling the part...different story!

Another Shaw Story:

Shaw to Winston Churchill: "I am enclosing two tickets to the first night of my new play; bring a friend--if you have one."

Churchill's response: "Cannot possibly attend first night, will attend second--if there is one."

Not sure it's a secret or how much my "training" my body has to do with it- I do eat right most of the time and I do a lot of power walking, but I have to give credit to genetics:

My mother's mother at 72 years old was passing herself off as 58 in order to get jobs and my mother- up until she became very sick with cancer- always looked a good 20 years younger than she was.

But I do find it harder to get up off the ground when I am gardening- and the reason I sit on the ground to begin with is because my back can't take bending as well as it used to, so at 58, I am feeling the effects of physical aging, but I can deal with that since my very youthful mind, heart and spirit really offsets it a lot!

OMG- ROFLMAO!!

I'm sure you've heard this one about Churchill:

Not sure who the woman was, but she said to Churchill: If you were my husband, I'd poison your tea, to which he replied: If you were my wife I'd drink it!

Creativity is a process, while empathy is the capacity to experience the feelings of others.

So, empathy can be a useful component of the creative process, but it's separate and distinct.

As Dave would say, or something like that.

Where have you put Dave, by the way?

Try not to underestimate me. That usually turns out badly.
