A Quote by unknown on balance, control, disease, garden, life, nature, play, and seriousness

Bats are in serious decline nearly everywhere. Worldwide, there are almost a thousand different kinds of bats which comprise nearly one fourth of all mammal species. Of the 43 species living in the U.S. and Canada, nearly 40 percent are endangered or are candidates for such status. . . . Bats may eat their own weight in insects in a single night. They also control such garden pests such as ants, beetles and disease carrying mosquitoes. As the primary predator of night-flying insects, bats play an important role in this balance of nature.

A Quote by Thomas Dreier on desires, disease, good, life, trouble, unhappiness, and work

When you talk about your troubles, your ailments, your diseases, your hurts, you give longer life to what makes you unhappy. Talking about your grievances merely adds to those grievances. Give recognition only to what you desire. Think and talk only about the good things that add to your enjoyment of your work and life. If you don't talk about your grievances, you'll be delighted to find them disappearing quickly.
