SHARON'S QUOTES

BETTER – DIFFERENT

Sometimes people aren't looking for better. What they're looking for is different. ~ Sharon Lee Davies-Tight

SHARON'S QUOTES

ANTICIPATION

Eyelids drop in anticipation of sleep, knowing tomorrow will make the rest of our lives different but okay. Dissatisfied with today, hopeful for tomorrow and the promises we’ve made to make the future better, as if waking magically creates the possibility, thus the certainty that it will happen. A new day really is a new… Continue reading ANTICIPATION

SHARON'S QUOTES

MOMENT

Wherever you are in your day, make it a great moment. ~ Sharon Lee Davies-Tight

CORE STORIES, MY ESSAYS

ROSIE ROSE

Rose is the thread that weaves the fabric that makes the blanket that protects the world. ~ Sharon Lee Davies-Tight

SHARON'S QUOTES

MANTRAS AND SLOGANS

When your mantra or slogan doesn't work any more, change it. Our brains settle in after the novelty wears off, rendering the purpose of the mantra ineffective. Mantras and slogans only work as long as they're novel. ~ Sharon Lee Davies-Tight

SHARON'S QUOTES

CHANNEL THE CHILD IN YOU

There's a child in everyone. No matter how old you become, that child stays. Channel that child now and then, when you want the comfort of truth and simplicity in a cold world. ~ Sharon Lee Davies-Tight

SHARON'S QUOTES

“WE DON’T SERVE VEGANS”

A restaurant that does not have an animal-free vegan option, might as well have a sign posted out front: WE DON'T SERVE VEGANS. A restaurant that has only salad greens, oil and vinegar and/or plain white rice, might as well have a sign posted out front: WE DON'T SERVE VEGANS. ~ Sharon Lee Davies-Tight

SHARON'S QUOTES

PREJUDICE AGAINST VEGANS

Prejudice and discrimination are growing against vegans. Be above that. They're the ones who will save your dog, when the economy tanks and people start stealing people's pets to eat. ~ Sharon Lee Davies-Tight

SHARON'S QUOTES

HORRIBLE

People tend to get used to horrible, whether it's a pizza or a dictator. It's human nature. ~ Sharon Lee Davies-Tight

LAUGH, SHARON'S QUOTES

CARROTS AND STICKS

Dangling carrots you’ll never get, while beating you with sticks? No thank you Hillary. I don’t like to be beaten with carrots or sticks. The line of difference always blurs. I want a candied carrot on top of an animal-free cupcake! ~ Sharon Lee Davies-Tight  

I WANT YOU:

THAT’S YOU NOW!

You want to explore. I know you do.  It's like being a kid again isn't it? That feeling of going outside, into your environment on any given day as a kid, to explore the world beyond your house or apartment to see what lies beyond the boundaries your parents set for you? What a wonderful,… Continue reading THAT’S YOU NOW!

MY ESSAYS

RESPECT IS A SIDE EFFECT OF GOING ANIMAL-FREE

Begin by going one day a week, any day or any meal, without meat. Then advance to more days on more occasions. Or start with eliminating dairy and eggs. About 65% of the human population has lactose intolerance. Eating/drinking dairy, besides being unnatural after being weaned from mother, besides causing digestive disturbances via lactose intolerance, coats… Continue reading RESPECT IS A SIDE EFFECT OF GOING ANIMAL-FREE

DANGER

God says without compassion, you become dangerous. ~ Sharon Lee Davies-Tight

SHARON'S QUOTES

LIFE ISN’T A PUZZLE

Memorizing large amounts of data doesn’t equate with being able to interpret the data. The ability to solve puzzles doesn’t equate to solving lifes problems. Life simply does not fit neatly into the predetermined configuration of a puzzle. If memorizing large amounts of data and puzzle solving ability did equate to problem solving ability, then… Continue reading LIFE ISN’T A PUZZLE

SHARON'S QUOTES

PRETTY

Make pretty what you have. ~ Sharon Lee Davies-Tight

SHARON'S QUOTES

BEST FRIEND

If dogs are human's best friend, then why are so many dogs abused and abandoned? ~ Sharon Lee Davies-Tight

SHARON'S QUOTES

WORK – FIGHT

The word fight is used too loosely, too often. Work for a cause, instead of fighting for it. Fighting always gets you into trouble. Working warriors are more effective than fighting warriors. Nobody gets hurt; nothing gets destroyed and more gets done. ~ Sharon Lee Davies-Tight

SHARON'S QUOTES

MOTHER

My mother is 89 years old. I'm 66, and we're both still learning from each other. ~ Sharon Lee Davies-Tight

SHARON'S QUOTES

NOW

You be your own star. You be your own hero. You be the one you look up to, the one you seek out for advice and guidance. You be the person you know you can be. Now. ~ Sharon Lee Davies-Tight

SHARON'S QUOTES

LOOKING THROUGH ROSE COLORED GLASSES

Looking through rose colored glasses enables you to see the hope and possibilities for a better future. You can then look back through the lens of your present-day reality with greater confidence and determination to change what you once thought to be impossible – because you’ve already seen what that change looks like. ~ Sharon… Continue reading LOOKING THROUGH ROSE COLORED GLASSES

LAUGH

HARDBALL

It’s time to retire hardball. Everybody plays it--and all it amounts to--at the end of the day--all things being equal in a perfect world, without rushing to judgement--that it is what it is--been there done that--deja vu all over again--on so many different levels. When the other shoe drops, where the sun doesn’t shine, that’s… Continue reading HARDBALL

I WANT YOU:, SHARON'S QUOTES

ISIS

ISIS is Benjamin Netanyahu's forever vengeance. And he's okay with that. It doesn't matter that his skin is nearly white, and the skin of ISIS is nearly black. Come to America. Make America suffer, so they know how we Jews suffer. Feel our pain. But what happened to ISIS? Why isn't anybody feeling their pain?… Continue reading ISIS

LAUGH

CLEVELANDERS

I've been living in Cleveland too long. I get 50 views on my website and I think I'm going viral, going to the world series and the super bowl. Of course the world knows that none of that will ever happen, but we Clevelanders know it will.  

MY ESSAYS

THANK YOU FOR YOUR SERVICE BRIAN MOORE

Nobody cares when a cop gets killed in the line of duty. Everybody loves to hate cops. Even the USA government hates cops. Yet, when the USA government calls the youth of America to fight their wars, and then the youth die in those wars, everybody raises them up with love and caring and tears… Continue reading THANK YOU FOR YOUR SERVICE BRIAN MOORE

SHARON'S QUOTES

STANDING

I am woman. I stand my ground. ~ Sharon Lee Davies-Tight

SHARON'S QUOTES

To: POPE FRANCIS

You wanted a prayer for you from the world. This is it. God wants to bring you to your feet - not to your knees. ~ Sharon Lee Davies-Tight

SHARON'S QUOTES

JEWS – ART

Jews think that nobody will ever accept them the way they are. So in their art, they change everybody else. ~ Sharon Lee Davies-Tight You change the world by changing yourself.

SHARON'S QUOTES

GETTING AWAY WITH STUFF

White people put more checks and balances on each other than black people do within their own group. With black people it's like, ' what can we get away with'. With white people it's like, 'what can I get away with, where nobody else in the group knows. ~ Sharon Lee Davies-Tight

SHARON'S QUOTES

THREAT GESTURE

Screaming full force, with full body - tense as a board -  leaning within inches of a person's face, is a threat gesture. When you do that, you're not wanting to be heard, you're wanting to be punched, so you can beat that person up. ~ Sharon Lee Davies-Tight

SHARON'S QUOTES

IT’S OKAY

It's okay to acknowledge your environment as causing you a troubled, problematic existence. It's equally okay to simultaneously acknowledge your own power to cope and to thrive within that environment. All animals do it. It's our nature. It's okay to rise above the group less inclined to do so. Soaring wherever you are, whatever your circumstances,… Continue reading IT’S OKAY
