It is better to travel well than to arrive. ~ The Buddha

As you know, not everyone celebrates Thanksgiving. And, I can say this with assurance, the ones who do choose to have this day for ‘giving thanks’ have their own way of celebrating.
So if you choose to celebrate Thanksgiving or not…
Thank you for all that you are…no matter who you are….where you are….I Give Thanks for you.
What strikes the oyster shell does not damage the pearl. ~ Rumi
Holding on to anger is like grasping a hot coal with the intent of throwing it at someone else; you are the one who gets burned. ~ The Buddha
However many holy words you read, however many you speak, what good will they do you if you do not act on upon them? ~ The Buddha
If indeed the qualities such as love, patience, tolerance, and forgiveness are what happiness consists in, and if it is also true that compassion,
defined as concern for others, is both the source and the fruit of these qualities,
then the more we are compassionate, the more we provide for our own happiness. ~ His Holiness The 14th Dalai Lama
