Thanksgiving Day Blues

I really understood how much I loved my relatives when I remained silent when they said something I completely disagreed with politically. My liberal friends might be ashamed of me — but I was happy. Politics can wait sometimes.

People look for retreats for themselves, in the country, by the coast, or in the hills . . . There is nowhere that a person can find a more peaceful and trouble-free retreat than in his own mind. . . . So constantly give yourself this retreat, and renew yourself.
