The Sun Rises and Sets On Another Day of Opportunity
Some people fail to live their dreams because
They are too busy living their fears.
Nothing is so easy as one's self to deceive
For what we wish we readily believe
We are the sum total of our experiences.
Common sense is no longer common.
Do unto others as you would have others do unto you.
In the school of life we are tested constantly.
If someone wishes to live a long life there must be a reason.
Time cures what reason cannot.
Remember the past and set the future.
One does not fail until one gives up trying.
What the cataterpillar believes is the end.
The butterfly knows is just the beginning.
Nobody said life was going to be easy. If they did, they lied.
Be patient. God is not finished with me yet.
Anything the mind can conceive and believe. It can achieve.
Words from the philosopher Epictetus (this is on Blame. Very appropriate for today)
To accuse others for ones own misfortune is a sign of want of education
To accuse yourself shows that ones education has begun
To accuse neither yourself nor others
Shows that ones education is complete
Words from the philosopher D H Lawrence
I can never decide whether my dreams are the result of my thoughts, or my thoughts the result of my dreams.
I have decided to write a philosophy based on my almost 73 years of life experience. I will only make a statement. Some will be my words. Some will be from others. The reason for this is to cause thinking based on the statement. I hope this may enlighten the reader. If it can help just one person, then I am rewarded.
