Like a rock

Thomas Jefferson (1743-1826)

Not speaking of the slogan used by a major car company. Or the Bob Seger album with the same title.

In your decisions as a business owner, as a husband/wife/father/mother/person-in-general, are your principles on solid ground?

Don’t just do something, stand there!

“In matters of style, swim with the current;
In matters of principle, stand like a rock.”
Thomas Jefferson, 3rd President of the United States (1801-1809)

      My pleasure Patty. I get inspiration from studying them. In a season where the negatives seem to outweigh the positives in the political arena, I’m trying to focus on the positives through history.

    I do love some of the Founding Fathers and principles they stood on – priceless stuff indeed – and oh by the way – thanks for getting me hooked on blogging – I am realizing that it really can be fun – and my prayers are with you brother as you recover from your most recent kidney stone battle.

    • David says:

      You are welcome. Thank you for your support and your prayers. As much pain as the stones have caused over the years, I’ve triumphed every time. This last one was probably the worst one. But one thing that kept me going was picturing myself on the other side of the pain, that is, free from pain. I believe we can use that concept in many areas of our life.
