The sculptor's attitude
I woke up early today, excited over all I get to do before the clock
Today I can complain because the weather is rainy or ...
Today I can feel sad that I don't have more money or ...
Today I can grumble about my health or ...
Today I can lament over all that my parents didn't give me when
I was growing up or ...
Today I can cry because roses have thorns or ...
Today I can mourn my lack of friends or ...
Today I can whine because I have to go to work or ...
Today I can complain because I have to go to school or ...
Today I can murmur dejectedly because I have to do housework ...
Today stretches ahead of me, waiting to be shaped.
Have a GREAT DAY ... unless you have other plans.
I know something good about you
Wouldn't this old world be better
Wouldn't it be fine and dandy If each handclasp warm and true
Wouldn't life be lots more happy, if the good that's in us all
Wouldn't life be lots more happy, If we praised the good we see?
Wouldn't it be nice to practice that fine way of thinking, too?-
An angel wrote:
Many people will walk in and out of your life,
To handle yourself, use your head; To handle others, use your heart.
Anger is only one letter short of danger.
If someone betrays you once, it's his fault; If he betrays you twice, it's your fault.
Great minds discuss ideas; Average minds discuss events; Small minds discuss people.
God gives every bird its food, But He does not throw it into its nest.
He who loses money, loses much;
Beautiful young people are acts of nature,
Learn from the mistakes of others.
The tongue weighs practically nothing,
The most important ingredient we put into any relationship is not
what we say or what we do, but what we are. And if our words and our
actions come from superficial human relations techniques (the Personality
Ethic) rather than from our own inner core (the Character Ethic),
others will sense that duplicity. We simply won't be able to create
and sustain the foundation necessary for effective interdependence.
In any contest between power and patience, bet on patience.
Consider how much more you often suffer from your anger and grief,
than from those very things for which you are angry and grieved.
Positive thinking is the key to success in business,
Make your mold. The best flux in the world will not make a usable
shape unless you have a mold to pour it in.
It is possible to give without loving, but it is impossible to love
