“The poor do not need charity; they need inspiration. Charity only sends them a loaf of bread to keep them alive in their wretchedness, or gives them an entertainment to make them forget for an hour or two.”
I wonder if Mr Wattles foresaw the big business charity have become? And what did he mean by inspiration?
You’re all invited to my next Coffee Break in Maadi 🙂 I know some of you would be here in a heartbeat was it not for the expensive flights and holiday it would take to get here 🙂 So I’m having virtual Coffee Breaks instead 🙂
I’m so pissed off with looking frumpy in my clothes, because of this belly bump.
I’ve had enough and it’s time to do something about it. It has to be simple, no fancy diet or restrictions. No rigid exercise regime or rules of any kind. Just kindness and a good dollop of Accountability.
“Writing is one of the most solitary activities in the world”
Of all the quotes about writing I find this one, from Paulo Coelho, heartbreakingly sad. Outstanding as he is, on this point, a Write-In will prove even this alchemist wrong.
Do you labor in solitude with your writing work?
That’s want I did when I started my memoir, and it got me down, until I figured out I don’t have to do it on my own. A Write-In is perfect for me. In person is best. I learned this when I roped in a writing friend to share some of her writing time with me.
