Ali's recipe for a good life.

Sunday, October 21, 2012

I am reading The Soul of a Butterfly by Muhammad Ali. It is a wonderful book and I actually plan to buy a copy when I return the copy I'm reading to the library. It will be the first book I've purchased in a long time which tells you how much I love it. This morning I read a section that relates to my blogs of last week. It is Ali's recipe for a good life.

Here is his suggestion...

Take a few cups of kindness
One dash of humility
One sprinkle of laughter
One teaspoon of patience
One tablespoon of generosity
One pint of forgiveness
One quart of love
And a gallon of faith

Mix in determination and add lots of courage;
Stir it up very well, spread it over the span of your lifetime,
And serve it to each and every person you meet.
