What greater gift than the love of a cat. – Charles Dickens

Arguably so many people feel that the love of a dog is the greatest gift but if a cat loves you it’s a different story. Cats in that way are more like humans and they decide to pick who they love or who their human is. I was privileged enough to have been loved by some very special cats. I do hope that one day that I can have that again.

Have a heart that never hardens, and a temper that never ties, and a touch that never hurts. – Charles Dickens

These are important things that people should heed by and seek to go is have a heart that doesn’t harden but many of us know that is difficult when life isn’t so kind. The temper thing can be difficult too because many people have a limit to how much one can take and then the temper monster shows up. Most people can handle doing the third being to have a touch that doesn’t hurt. Sure there are many ways of touching people and it isn’t always physically but one should have a soft touch, a warm heart and try to keep one’s temper in check.

I never could have done what I have done without the habits of punctuality, order, and diligence, without the determination to concentrate myself on one subject at a time. – Charles Dickens

I’ll never forget the one teacher that had described me as being a diligent student and I had thought of him as one of my more difficult teachers for drafting but I did learn a good bit from him and I think he was difficult on me because he was trying to push me to do the best that I could. I remember doing his homework during study hall in the drafting room with another drafting teacher and asking for advice at times and I think between both teachers I definitely proved myself a capable student. I’ve taken those things that I learned to do while in school to apply them to my work, my photography and artwork. I find when you concentrate on what you’re doing that the results tend to be better than half-assing it.
