We do not need to be afraid of our mind. We can go on a journey of discovery and experiment. Then we are able to play with our mental processes and develop our mental ability in wisdom and compassion.

—Martine Batchelor

Word of the Day

Pittance: a small portion, amount, or allowance; also : a meager wage or remuneration. It’s a pity when you haven’t anything but a pittance. And in fact, pity and pittance share etymological roots. The Middle English word pittance came from Anglo-French pitance, meaning “pity” or “piety.” Originally, a pittance was a gift or bequest to a religious community, or a small charitable gift. Ultimately, the word comes from the Latin pietas, meaning “piety” or “compassion.” Our words pity and piety come from pietas as well.

The helpful thought for which you look
Is written somewhere in a book.
Edward Gorey

Joy is to delight in other’s pleasure and success;
It is to cultivate the wish that all have happiness.
It is a joy one feels when they achieve it for themselves
And is the wish that they should never be deprived of it
