WIT & WISDOM - November 10, 1998
It's not how much you do but how much love you put into what you are doing. - Mother Teresa
~~~~~~~ SPECIAL THOUGHTS:
When Da Vinci was painting his famous masterpiece, "The Last Supper," he looked a long time before he found a face that he could use as a model for the face of Jesus. But he at last found a young man with a real good face. He sang in a church choir. Because of the artist's illness, the unfinished picture was laid aside, and when, after a number of years, he wished to finish it, he went out to find a model who would represent Judas. He must find a face which had in it all the selfishness, deceit, and hypocrisy that must have shone right out of the face of Judas. He was not long in finding such a face. One day the model, while seated in the studio, asked the artist if he did not recognize him. "Four years ago I was seated here while you painted my picture," he said. Once he was the model for Jesus, now for Judas! What made the difference? - Four years of sin. - By Sherman A. Nagel, Signs of the Times, February 5, 1924

~~~~~~~ KEEP SMILING:
GAELIC BLESSING. . . .
May those who love us, love us,
And those who don't love us,
May God turn their hearts,
And if he doesn't turn their hearts,
May he turn their ankles
So we'll know them by their limping. 
Mikaele Dreu, a Fijian engineering student at Bolton Institute in northwest England, has developed a way of making coconut oil, long-used for heating, a viable fuel for diesel engines. "The coconut fuel can be used in diesel engines at the moment and maybe with technological improvements the fuel might be usable in petrol engines,'' he said in a telephone interview. (Reuters)
