Hugh Prather Quotes

Here’re a couple of Hugh Prather quotes I believe in. Hugh was a lay minister, a counselor and writer. His first book, Notes to Myself, published in 1970 sold more than 5 million copies. 

The 1st deals with how most of us solve problems–not by one masterstroke, but by a series of tiny fixes…

“By approaching my problems with ‘What might make things a little
better?’ rather than ‘What is the solution?’ I avoid setting myself up
for certain frustration. My experience has shown me that I am not going
to solve anything in one stroke; at best I am only going to chip away at
it,” Hugh Prather, I Touch the Earth, the Earth Touches Me

The 2nd one provides the underpinning for all social media:

“There is no joy in anything unshared,” Hugh Prather, Notes to Myself, Real People Press, 1970

postscript: more from Hugh:

“If the desire to write is not accompanied by actual writing, then the desire must be not to write.”

“Just when I think I have learned the way to live, life changes.”
