Chapter 4, Page 3, Book 18


The world is endlessly fascinating to those who take the time to look.

Marty Rubin

Just for today, I’ll look deeper at something that fascinates me...

Turn frustration into fascinations.

Richard Bartlett

If you are fascinated by something, you find it very interesting and attractive and your thoughts tend to concentrate on it.  Fascination often comes from noticing the miraculous all around us.  

The possibility for miracles great and small is with us every day.

Being easily fascinated extends far beyond the material things around us.  This attribute can quickly spread to better appreciate the people around us too.  When we get fascinated with others, we become generous with our time, our attentiveness , and how we can help others.

It’s a fact, that fascination can only happen when you pay attention.  It costs nothing to be fascinated, but it means everything to a friend or loved one.

I think that we should get fascinated by a lot of things.  If you can’t get fascinated, you won’t care enough to learn something new and often doing something with or for others helps to motivate us to look more deeply into something.


Getting older is a fascination thing.  The older you get, the older you want to get.

Keith Richards

I did smile at Kieth's words. LOL
Yes, fascination is an odd and sometimes illusive thing. I enjoy taking something apart because I am fascinated that someone could have put the idea together. I a;ways enjoy how you can dissect a word to make it live. THANKS

Glad the car is running, the cost sure ain't no fun, but the mechanics of today do fascinate me. All I can do mostly is look under a hood and say, "LOts of stuff under here!" When I used to know every little part inside and out. I am fascinated a young mech can say immediately, "It is probably the 'whatyoucallit' that is stuck or needs replacing," and most times I have no idea what he is saying. LOL

Love you lady, glad it is warming up some for you!

Now that's a word I've not considered lately. Rather like passion, I suppose? It's been a long time ....

i think this sums it up for me today. "Turn frustration into fascinations."
