Thoughts to inspire and brighten your day

I compiled these thoughts for my own family, because life today is not easy for the younger generation. (And never really was!)

I research and write on nutrition and health. The following collection of wise words is possibly the best nutrition of all: food for the mind.

Take a break and be refreshed!

Here’s to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently.

They’re not fond of rules. And they have no respect for the status quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them.

About the only thing you can’t do, is ignore them.

Because they change things. They push the human race forward. And while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius.

Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do.
Jack Kerouac
