Sense of Purpose Pondering

Words Of Wisdom 

On A Wednesday. . .  


Your journey is not the same as mine.

And my journey is not the same as yours

but if you meet me on a certain path

may we encourage each other.

And when I meet someone that crosses my path on that journey, I will later reflect on how they impacted my life as we all cross for a reason

Michael Jacobs Related to your message, this morning I read a quote from James Norbury's book "Big Panda and Tiny Dragon" -- It has a photo of the panda walking with the tiny dragon on his back.  "Which is more important," asked Big Panda, "the journey or the destination?"  "The company." said Tiny Dragon.

There have certainly been people who have crossed my path whom I would have rather not met, but for the most part, it's been pleasant encounters, great minds and beautiful hearts. Sense of purpose, I tend to ponder it a lot.

Lawrence "Larry" & Sheila Agranoff. Cell: 631-805-4400 - true.


Nina Hollander, Broker - I thought so as well when I first saw it.  Coincidentally, the quote recently reappeared for me in two different places.


Wayne Martin - what can I say?  Your response has become almost predictable.

Kat Palmiotti - I admit it's a path I have taken on more than one occasion.


Brian England - that's a nice thought.

I had coffee with someone yesterday who is feeling very lonely and she blamed it all on the American culture - it was a long coffee.....  we do need to encourage each other more but I don't think that Americans are all the fault

Lise Howe - it was nice of you to lend an ear - hopefully the conversation helped your friend to understand.
