This issue contains:

Quotes of the Week:
Forgive, but do not wonder how you must act. Forgive, but do not try to convince another to forgive. Forgive, but do not hold yourself superior that you have done so. Simply forgive. Wrap your forgiveness around you like a cloak of light, a spiritual barrier that protects your happiness and your peace, but closes no one out.
—Hugh Prather.

"Maturity is achieved when a person postpones immediate pleasures for long-term values."
—Joshua LLiebman.

"Fame is a vapor, popularity an accident. Riches take wing. Only one thing endures. And that is character."
—Horace Greeley.

"Abilities wither under faultfinding, blossom with encouragement."
—Donald ALaird

Peter Shepherd
Listen to this issue's Podcast:
Each week Peter Shepherd produces an audio version of the Cultivate Life! Magazine, including several selected articles. To begin this week, Chuck Gallozzi asks, isn't it time we thought a bit more? Real thinking, not just the endless stream of chitter-chatter that drifts through our consciousness. And then Steve Wickham points out why neither explaining nor complaining rarely do us any good. Finally, Karla Brandau recommends that for this Christmas, wrap up forgiveness as a present for everyone you know... and feel the love that boomerangs back to you. You'll experience a warm assurance that the world is great place to live.
