Quote from : Iris Apfel | 1921 – | American fashion icon


For me work is great fun. I love what I do. And, it’s much more interesting than sitting around with a bunch of dopey dames.”

Iris Apfel | 1921 – | American fashion icon

Picked that one up from the HBO documentary, ‘If You’re Not in the Obit, Eat Breakfast.’ It’s an inspiring reminder that life can be a happy thing for far longer than some might think.
Apfel will be 97 at the end of this month. Another reminder from her is below.

“The day I grew up was the day I realized there is no free lunch. You pay for everything — not only in money — but you pay with time, with experience, with love, with pain, you pay some way. You don’t get away free. If you do, you get something for nothing, and it’s worth nothing.”

Love is a gift from God to man


“Love is a gift from God to man.
Obedience is a gift from Master to man.
Surrender is a gift from man to Master.

One who loves desires the will of the Beloved.
One who obeys does the will of the Beloved.
One who surrenders knows nothing but the will of the Beloved.

Love seeks union with the Beloved.
Obedience seeks the pleasure of the Beloved.
Surrender seeks nothing.

One who loves is the lover of the Beloved.
One who obeys is the beloved of the Beloved.
One who surrenders has no existence other than the Beloved.

Greater than love is obedience.
Greater than obedience is surrender.
All three arise out of, and remain contained in, the Ocean of divine Love.”
