Chapter 7, Page 8, Book 15



All of us might wish at times that we lived in a more tranquil world, but we don't. And if our times are difficult and perplexing, so are they challenging and filled with opportunity.

Robert Kennedy

July 8 - Love is an enigmatic maze, Perplexing

When you do find humor in trying times, one of the first and most important changes you experience is that you see your perplexing problems in a new way - you suddenly have a new perspective on them.

Allen Klein

You make right turns and you make wrong turns but at the end of the day you will still get through it.

In a maze we are easily lost and the way out is hard to find.  No one said that being a loving person is always the easiest thing in the world to be.


Happiness, that grand mistress of the ceremonies in the dance of life, impels us through all its mazes and meandering, but leads none of us by the same route

Charles Caleb Colton

Sometimes the problems of the maze of life are so difficult that we feel frustrated and trapped by our circumstances with no obvious way out ahead and we lose our way. And the maze of life affects us not just at the physical level but also at the deeper spiritual level of thoughts and feelings. 

We are constantly bombarded with all kinds of ideas of what life is really about and how it should be lived


The man of character, sensitive to the meaning of what he is doing, will know how to discover the ethical paths in the maze of possible behavior.

Earl Warren

I believe that it is love that should guide us as we walk through the maze of life.  It’s the best way to fulfil the amazing life we have been offered and to cope with all the adversities we daily face.



They that mistake life's accessories for life itself are like them that go too fast in a maze: their very haste confuses them

Seneca


I couldn't help but add a couple of pictures of my youngest son and his son in a corn maze last fall, even though we're still in mid summer right now.  

Hope you all are having an amazing summer !

I was 'knowing' the kid in blue belonged to you(yours). YOU hit the nail on the head or knocked it out of the park with this, I love it:

So true to walk through the maze of life with love as our guide, Ma; between love and God as our leaders, we can't go wrong negotiating life :)

I love the quote, "Love is an enigmatic maze." It is perplexing, indeed.
