Quote for a Monday Morning

I believe in taking a positive attitude toward the world, toward people, and toward my work. I think I'm here for a purpose. I think it's likely that we all are, but I'm only sure about myself. I try to tune myself in to whatever it is that I'm supposed to be, and I try to think of myself as a part of all of us - all mankind and all life. I find it's not easy to keep these lofty thoughts in mind as the day goes by, but it certainly helps me a great deal to start out this way.
Jim Henson

Wonderful quote, Diane. We tend to ignore the ideas of people like Henson in favour of the really big names of people from history or literature, but someone like Henson has so much to offer - it was so obvious in the characters he brought to life that he was a joyful soul and his purpose was fulfilled. Too bad we lost him at such a relatively young age.
