"Spread love everywhere you go: first of all in your own house. Give love to your children, to your wife or husband, to a next door neighbor… Let no one ever come to you without leaving better or happier. Be the living expression of God's kindness; kindness in your face, kindness in your eyes, kindness in your smile; kindness in your warm greeting." - Mother Teresa

I once received a fan letter which read: "Dear Mr Sellers, I have been a keen follower of yours for many years now, and should be most grateful if you would kindly send me a singed photograph of yourself". Unable to ignore this unfortunate spelling mistake, Sellers took a photograph and burned it round the edges using a cigarette lighter. A few weeks later, another letter arrived from the fan thanking him for the photograph, but adding, "I wonder if I could trouble you for another as this one is signed all round the edge".

~~~~~~~ TRIVIA:

He had an idea. He believed that the Bible could be much better understood if it were translated "thought by thought" rather than word by word.

He selected several chapters from the New Testament and wrote them in today's language. he became so excited and inspired by the project that he immediately shared the work with a major publisher.

To his shock, the manuscript was rejected. He tried another, and another. No one would even consider publishing such a "common" edition of the Bible.

He believed in his concept so completely that he went to the bank and borrowed the funds to self-publish 2,000 copies. Then he persuaded several bookstores to take a few copies of his new volume. It was more than four months before he received his first reorder. The rest is history. Now, Dr. Ken Taylor's "The Living Bible" has sold over 100 million copies and has been translated into over 100 languages of the world.
