Food For Thought

Family
          is not in the blood,
        but in the heart.

Humility
           is not knowing how untalented you are,
         but knowing how talented others can be.

Knowledge
           is not what we have learned,
         but what we deemed important enough to remember.

Ignorance 
            is not a condition,
          but an impromptu consequence of contentedness.

Reality
            is not what we perceive,
          but merely your understanding, in the absence of what others understand.
