Food For Thought

Food for thought quotes covers a vast array of sayings, feelings, and musings as presented by different authors. Some of these thoughts may make perfect sense to you depending on your own experiences through life. Some thoughts may create feelings of something new or feelings of confusion.

Will these various conscious words impact you? Will they change a pathway in life? Will they speak to you about a change or altered action or behavior? Each person possesses a wide range of memories that have been stored deep within the subconscious; sometimes these recollections will be near the surface of one's overall being - a part of you that you either wish to remember or desire to forget. No matter who, or where you are at this very moment in space and time, our thoughts, our thinking, our joining together of past to change the future may arise because of something we read. It is our hope that all or some of these thoughts help you to look at aspects of life in a new light or to assist in clarity.
