Reflections

C.S. Lewis ... Part of every misery is, so to speak, the misery's shadow or reflection: the fact that you don't merely suffer but have to keep on thinking about the fact that you suffer. I not only live each endless day in grief, but live each day thinking about living each day in grief.

Confucius said... By three methods we may learn wisdom: First, by reflection, which is noblest; Second, by imitation, which is easiest; and third by experience, which is the bitterest.

Einstein said ... Each of us is here for a brief sojourn; for what purpose he knows not, though he senses it. But without deeper reflection one knows from daily life that one exists for other people.

Thomas Paine ... The real man smiles in trouble, gathers strength from distress, and grows brave by reflection.

What is a reflection of you?

Reflection? Too early in the am for me to do "deep thinking." I do have an opinion on your photo: wonderful and unusual!

I think they all have some truth but Lewis' seems most relevant given the world at present. The picture's great too!

Hi Dana...Hmmmmmm...reflection of me? I think the best answer to this for me is to treat others the way I'd want to be treated...and to live each day like it could be my last...if I can go to sleep at nite with a clear conscience then I've done the best for me...wow, was that heavy enuff? ;-) Nice shot by the way...and which one do you subscribe to? Have an awesome day!

Samethought as Kate, but opposite end of the temporal spectrum - too late..zzzzz However, you really set us an immense question. For me, it's Thomas Paine that I can most easily see myself in. From too early an age, it's been the way all the way - not all distress, but too much. However, by always reflecting on it & what it means, I believe it's also brought a rich, wonderful, lucky life. Don't wait for the call, just be there when those around you are in distress and give, give, give without expecting anything back. Simply 'cos of understanding that others gothrough pain too. A great way to go to sleep witha clear conscience...And a good nightfrom me to you!

Yes, I find the most truth in the quote from Confucius. When we do not take the time to reflect, then sooner or later we'll have to learn the hard way. Beautiful photo.

Not being terribly strong, fast or nimble I tend to agree with Cicero. “It is not by muscle, speed, or physical dexterity that great things are achieved, but by reflection, force of character, and judgment” Great photo.

what a great photo. I've always loved pictures of reflections. I enjoy the distortion and the fact that you you have to look a little harder to see what's there. it's not so clear and obvious.

this was pretty deep - so deep I had to reflect on this - but i guess I would go with Edgar Allans Poems - poems worth a reflection for a lifetime:

In visions of the dark night
I have dreamed of joy departed-
But a waking dream of life and light
Hath left me broken-hearted.

Ah! what is not a dream by day
To him whose eyes are cast
On things around him with a ray
Turned back upon the past?

That holy dream- that holy dream,
While all the world were chiding,
Hath cheered me as a lovely beam
A lonely spirit guiding.

What though that light, thro' storm and night,
So trembled from afar-
What could there be more purely bright
In Truth's day-star?

I only come here for your beautiful pictues. I didn't know you were going to make me think today as well!

The biggest reflection of me would have to be my girls. I see so much of myself in them,how I look, my expressions and form of speech. Yet they go off in their own way as well. That is also a reflection of how I have raised them.
