Gandhi's Famous Quotes

A man is but a product of his thoughts
what he thinks, he becomes.

The human voice can never reach the distance that is covered by the still, small voice of conscience!

The weak can never forgive,
Forgiveness is an attribute of the strong.

There is a higher court than the courts of justice
It is the court of God and conscience.
It supercedes all other courts.

An eye for an eye - only ends up
making the whole world blind.

I live in St. Catharines, near the Niagara Falls.

This is me at 6 years

I was born in Frankfurt 3 years before World War 2.
The eldest of six children - I never had a chance to be a child.
My early memories are all a nightmare of running to bomb shelters,
Hiding in basements,
Being hungry and cold.

This is my mother and my siblings

I often marvel at how my beloved, late mother managed through those horrendous years.
We all survived!

I decided to come to Canada at 20

I could not speak any English!

My first wife "Ruthy" died of Leukemia aged 40.

We have two daughters: Carrie and Stefanie

They are grown-up now.
This is Stefanie

This is Carrie and Ivan

Love requires effort!

"Love never dies a natural death.
It dies from neglect and abandonment.
It dies of blindness and indifference
and of being taken for granted.
Things omitted are often more deadly than errors committed.

This was my Cottage.

In the end, love dies of weariness, from not being nurtured.
We don't really fall out of love any more than we fall into it.

When love dies, one or both partners have neglected it, have failed to replenish and renew it.
Like any other living, growing thing,
love requires effort to keep it healthy.

Autumn at the Lake

Leo Buscaglia.

The great tragedy of life is not that men perish,
but that they cease to love. W. SOMERSET MAUGHAM

It is not our toughness that keeps us warm at night,
but our tenderness which makes others want to keep us warm.


When love is postponed for another day.

"The idea of expressing love is treated by many like the book we have been meaning to read or the phone call we intend to make or the letter we plan to write. Our will is genuine, our intentions are good, but there are always good reasons why we do not accomplish it. Perhaps the time is not quite right, the mood is wrong, there are too many more important things to do, the planets are not in proper alignment, any excuse will do! So our days fill with lost opportunities and postponements instead of much needed love.

Some things just shouldn't be put off. A child who comes running to us for a hug or lavish exclamations of praise needs it now, not at our convenience.

A friend who requires a shoulder to cry on can't wait for a more opportune time. A lover who needs reassurance shouldn't be put off for any reason.

On the York River in Bancroft - Near the Cottage

Love is a commitment that assures we will be there when needed. The feeling that there might be a more convenient time to love has caused many people a lifetime of regret.

There can be no atonement for moments when our love was necessary and we left them unfulfilled.

Leo Buscaglia

One who lets slip by the opportunity to serve another
misses one of the richest experiences life has to offer.
