Three Things To Inspire Your Weekend (13)


Quote of the day:
He who sees a need and waits to be asked for help is as unkind as if he had refused it. -Dante Alighieri

After a long courtship spanning 27 years, British couple George Kirby,103, and Doreen Lucky,91, tied the knot and makes them the world's oldest newly-weds. 
The couple got married in Estbourne, England, with close family and friends in attendance.

At Union station in LA last month, a board with the headline 'Give what you can. Take what you need' went up with money stacked to it. A project by Tyler Bridges of 'The Toolbox', he said people of all races and gender and socio-economic backgrounds gave and took from the board.

  5. The first quote, so true.

    That board is pretty cool, and I am glad (and hopeful) that people were honest in their giving and taking.

    Pretty cool how nature will take back a place, like that last pic. Bet that is a pretty haunting place.

  6. @Highly Favored: I know just what you mean. Much of the reason why I post inspirational stories is to highlight the positives in the world- a break away from all the negativity we see daily on the news. Many thanks for your comments, much appreciate!

    @ Pat Hatt: I thought so too, and the money board is a good in that people giving back are much more than those taking away. Nice to see you on here!

    @Nkem Okechukwu: Hello, thank you for visiting!

    @ Ygraine: I was amazed by all the stories, really touching. Its good to go into the weekend with a positive attitude. Thank you, always nice seeing you on here!

    @X: I quite agree with what you said, good to see honesty in giving and taking around the money board. Nature is nature, everything will eventually return to the beginning some day. Thank you, and best wishes!

  7. That give and take board would last about 3 seconds in Florida! But I do like the photo of the abandoned village. Mother Nature has reclaimed her own!

  8. It is never too late to do the right thing, huh! At this age, some might wonder, "what's the point?" But they did what was right.
    I love that. And the quote is beautiful, too. A lot of reading and writing for me this weekend. I am trying to finish FIFTY SHADES FREED.
    Happy weekend, love!

  11. That man doesn't look 103 - it's amazing he got married. I think if you put money in a public place, people will be wary of taking it, even if they want to. Love that green, green village! Have a lovely weekend! :)

  33. Hello and thanks for visiting my blog.

    How wonderful that a couple of such great ages can even consider marriage let alone actually take the vows. I am impressed by that and by the leaving and taking of money. There has to be honesty involved there.

    ReplyDelete
  34. Congrats to the newly wed, they are a sweet couple! It is a good cause to stick money on the board from the generous and willing people and allow those who needed the money to take from the board. The moss has conquered all!

    ReplyDelete
  35. Those two look really good for their age! May they have a few happy years together. Thanks for your frequent visits!

  37. I love the inspiration you provided here. It's amazing to me that someone could have a money-sharing effort and people wouldn't just have the board be blank all of the time. People can be honest and kind and giving. It's a beautiful thing. Thanks for sharing!

    ReplyDelete
  38. Wow, that photo of the Chinese village is so unreal!
