Is the depth of meaning too deep?


“Lost in the depth of seeking truth and her love of reading.”

Here is a challenge to embark on a new adventure that is not expensive. All it requires is a willingness to read a unique, unusual, or different type of book than what was read in the past. To do so will provide many new insights. For example, there is a wealth of knowledge, intrigue, romance and every other type of action and emotion buried within classic literature.It is amazing to see tremendous volumes of elegant and sophisticated writing hidden within each page.We can actually find it refreshing if we take time to enjoy the depth of meaning in a language that is rarely spoken although it is actually English.

The times and culture have influenced the way our society communicates, in written and spoken form, with the use of  technology that we have at our fingertips. Will we sacrifice our ability to speak face to face, with grace and dignity, to a verbiage reduced to the lowest common denominator called a text?

Famous quotes of the past have contributed in many ways to inspire or teach us many lessons in life. What will the quotes of our day look like in the future if we continue on this trend? Will there be a scared place provided to keep the old fashion quotes alive and be displayed? Perhaps we be forced to resign ourselves to a “thumbs up or down” mentality and learn to be content as we say “like”. The upside of that philosophy would be that it could take care of the lack of knowledge and low level of vocabulary words so there is always even playing field.

Here is a short quote that can easily be used to send as a text message. We can title it an inspirational text, although it is not clear what the author was referring to. “It is always too early to quit.” – Norman Vincent Peale. If it were decided we could only communicate by texting, we might begin to look for other short quotes to share. “Our deeds determine us, as much as we determine our deeds.” – George Eliot

What does one have to say to be deemed quote worthy? While traveling, at work or at play, there are quotes hanging on walls to inspire others. This one is was worth taking time not only to write on paper, but to write on the heart.“Guard well your spare moments; they are like uncut diamonds. Discard them and their value will never be known. Improve them and they will become the brightest gems in a useful life.”     -Ralph Waldo Emerson

Whatever we choose to do in life, as we spend our time here, remember every moment is precious, never to return. As we read, write, work, or rest, let’s live life to the fullest and with purpose.
