This You Tube video has nearly 50 million views which speaks for itself. It’s a little slow at first, and I almost clicked away and moved on, but didn’t. It has strong subliminal meaning to our lives as humans – this battle between Lions, Water Buffalo and Crocodiles. The end will surprise you.
Life. We love being alive.
We dread dying.
In between, we have to carve out our life. A life that hopefully allows us to not only survive, but also to thrive somewhat.
To have mostly good days, a fair number of “bad” days, and occasionally a few great days.
Bad, good, great. We will each define these differently, no doubt. That’s okay. It’s all relative anyway.

Being inspired inspires others.
Most humans like quotes. We enjoy the way a small sentence or quick thought can summarize the essence of a larger body of work.
Some people are addicted to quotes, like me.
And some people find themselves quotable. This is usually by design, and it is also the mark of someone who’s been burned by Hell’s fire and came out purified, or at the very least, changed.

Quotes are good.
You can quote me on that.
We were taught as children, “Sharing is good”.
