Confucius, Famous Quote Friday

“No matter how busy you may think you are, you must find time for reading, or surrender yourself to self-chosen ignorance.” 

Confucius

Confucius03

Confucius was a Chinese teacher, editor, politician, and philosopher. He carried strong family and friend loyalty and he was respectful of all ages. He carried out many ancient Chinese traditions.  He was the originator of the Golden Rule, “Do not do to others what you do not want done to yourself.”

I very well could have used the Golden Rule to talk about today, as it is a spectacular rule but I find myself relating to this other quote a little more today.  The quote is pretty straight forward. You need to make time to read,  or ignorance will take over. Reading is so important in our lives. The more you read the more you know. The more insightful you can be.

Reading is where your new creative ideas will come from.  You can learn so much from what you are reading and so much about yourself in the process. Now what you read is up to you. Novels, Non-Fiction, Magazines, News articles; you can read any number of things but to make more time for it you just have to do it. You have to find something you enjoy reading and build a routine with it. Read in the morning, read in the evening, read on your breaks at work or anytime. The success you will find in your life from reading will be immeasurable to anything else. If you do not already have something you read regularly, I suggest you go to the library and start to find something that inspires you. Everyday,Start, Continue, and never finish reading.

Have a great weekend everyone. Don’t forget to share this with your friends. 🙂

Thank you

A creative mind takes no label. A positive mind sees past that which is easy to find. Find the things you love in life and share them with others. I am an artist. I am a positive thinker. I am on a quest to love everything life gives to me. On the outside I am no different then anyone else but on the inside I feel I have a lot of different things to share. My goal is to find those willing to listen. Those willing to share there thoughts in return. I have a long list of goals in my life, some I have met and all the rest I am getting closer to every day. I want to write a book, I want to be a motivational speaker, I want to own an art gallery, just to name a few.
