If you missed Richie Alan Naggar's first posting about "Truth Served Here", take another gander below.

There's some fantastic quotes by Henry David Thoreau, “It's not what you look at that matters, it's what you see.” 

This one really grabbed me because the topic of perception has come up  again and again lately.  We all see, hear, and feel things differently.  For example, Emails and texts can be so misconstrued...In the business world I believe it's important to retain that personal, human touch.

Check below and see what speaks to you!!

Henry David Thoreau remains one of my favorites. You must do your self a good service and visit with this mans quotes and philosophies as they will enrich you and cause you great reason to pause and then admire the depth, breath and width of life and all its mysteries

“How vain it is to sit down to write when you have not stood up to live.” is another one that moves me every which way. Here we get insight into his Psyche and how what one shares should come from the mastery of the inner places which only comes about from true living

“It's not what you look at that matters, it's what you see.” is a haunting phrase that reminds us to PAUSE in life and let what you are observing speak to you. Not distractions, but signs and verification's that point the way or support your position

“Never look back unless you are planning to go that way” continues to feed me so well to this day. There is a reason to reflect and another to move on. Know what you are all about and then go in that direction. With so much to be done, forward progressive movement should dominate

“be yourself- not your idea of what you think somebody else's idea of yourself should be” this says your uniqueness in the cosmos is sufficient and worthy. Add nothing to it and let no one take from it. It speaks to "BE" who you are first then "DO from that being and you will "Have" the rewards of such. Be-Do-Have is the natural order of things

“What lies behind us and what lies ahead of us are tiny matters compared to what lives within us” says to me to spend time on the inner journey for its value is incalculable and is the true coin of this earthly realm. If there is something within you that is not performing...dispense with it

“Do not be too moral. You may cheat yourself out of much life so Aim above morality. Be not simply good, be good for something” this helps to take us past piousness, boast and arrogance away from the selfish existence and onward to the vastness of life and our purpose in it

“You must live in the present, launch yourself on every wave, find your eternity in each moment. Fools stand on their island of opportunities and look toward another land. There is no other land; there is no other life but this” which tells me succinctly to respect the moment you are in for in leads to everything else. What we are looking for is here, now obtainable and beckoning

You see you thought he was famous for his: “Most men lead lives of quiet desperation and go to the grave with the song still in them”and perhaps not much more? Not so! He remains a treasure trove of edification, encouragement and blessings for those that can hear and then appreciate

Thank you Mr. Thoreau...well done
