MOORE MIND MUSINGS for September 12, 2021

Silence

This weekend we honored the 20th Anniversary of the 9/11 attacks on the US. Writers and commentators naturally felt obligated to comment on the anniversary and the attacks. In a world where there is an endless number of column inches to fill in newspapers, the internet, and the broadcast media, it seems like the same thing was said and said and said and said. I don’t write that pejoratively; it just is.

But one thing those pundits don’t do each anniversary is to tell you something perhaps more important. And it’s this. . . .

Take a minute or two and do something our busy and noisy world does not often allow: simply think of what this Anniversary means to you. Just that. And think of the things that truly matter.

Quote to Ponder:

There is a considerable amount of intellectual tyranny in the name of science.

  –Richard Feynman

    As we write this, my calendar shouts out IT”S Grandparents Day. On Grandparents Day, we remember special grandparents with some of our favorite quotes. Whether they go by Grandma and Grandpa, Meemaw and Peepaw, or even the newly minted Lotta and Papa Rico, you are worth celebrating.

      And it’s not just us saying it — throughout the centuries, countless proverbs and quotations have expressed the importance of grandparents in our lives and the need to cherish their wisdom, experience and love.

    We dedicate this newsletter to all those doting g-parents as we cross the threshold into a new chapter. Here are the most delightful quotes that we have hung on for years.

    • Grandchildren are the dessert of life. They finish off life like a spectacular meal.

    • The best parents get promoted to grandparents.

    • What children need most are the essentials grandparents can provide in abundance-unconditional love, patience, kindness, comfort, a sense of laughter, creativity….and of course…drum lessons and learning to twirl.

    • The reason grandchildren and grandparents get along so well is that they share the same enemy!

    • Perfect love does not exist until grandchildren are born. Welsh Proverb

    • Grandfathers are just antique little boys.

    • My grandmother started walking five miles a day when she turned sixty. She’s ninety seven now and no one knows where the heck she is. Ellen DeGeneres

    • When Grandparents enter the door, discipline flies out the window. Ogden Nash

    • I miss my Grandfather to this day: his long whiskery eyebrows, his huge hands and hugs, his warmth, his prayers, his stories, but above all, his shining example of how to live and how to die. Bear Grylls
