My favorite moments:
“I was in a city one night — Chicago, it was, come to think of it — and I saw a man chase a hat that had blown off someone's head into the street. A car hit him and killed him dead.” Walker glanced at the old man, disgusted, and said, “Why on earth would you tell me that?” “I just think it's amazing,” Jones answered, looking straight ahead, “that a person could lose everything, chasing nothing.”
Have you ever considered how often we judge ourselves by our intentions while we judge others by their actions? Yet intention without action is an insult to those who expect the best from you. ‘I intended to bring you flowers, but I didn't.’ ‘I meant to finish this work on time.’ ‘I was going to be there for your birthday …’ Despite popular belief to the contrary, there is absolutely no power in intention.
It is simply that they did not make a mistake; they made a choice … and never understood the difference between the two.
Forgiveness is about the past. Trust and respect are about the future.
as i did five years ago, i'm ordering extra copies to hand out to friends.
But was the book good? Luckily my Google Library showed me that there is a Limited Preview, and I read the first chapter on-line. This book made me feel the way I did when I first read Richard Bach's "Illusions -- The Adventures of a Reluctant Messiah" so I quickly ordered a copy of the book, read it and then as with Bach's classic, I ordered copies to give away, this time to our grown children. If you haven't heard about this book from a friend yet, consider this your notice. You will want to become a Noticer yourself before you finish reading this book.
. . . . Jones came up on folks unexpectedly, folks who were in need and Jones managed to find that need and fill it. If you have no needs in your life today, perhaps it's because your perspective on your life is limited, up until now. What would Jones have to ask you or tell you if he came up to you blocking your car in your driveway as you were backing up to go meet your husband at a restaurant to ask him for a divorce, as he did to Jan? Or if you were the very old widow, Willow Gray, who was planning to commit suicide because she felt her life was over? Or a man of twenty-three like Andy, who was living in a hole in sand under a pier and hadn't a clue as to what happened or how to get out of his predicament?
There are many stories in this imminently readable book which you will enjoy, but first you must open the book. Then you must open yourself. Look up. Get a new perspective. The best of your life looms ahead of you if you will begin noticing.
