A Thought for Tuesday...

The longer we dwell on our misfortunes, the greater is their power to harm us.

Poignant.

Think the little quote from Bridge of Spies seems an appropriate thing to add:

James Donovan: Aren't you worried?
Rudolf Abel: Would that help?

Re: A Thought for Tuesday...

I love both these quotes. I have a Pinterest board titled 'Think', which is a collection of quotes that have made me stop and think. My signature on here is one of them.

I think these two will be added

Edited to add: I've just looked Voltaire's quote up and found what preceded it, hope you don't mind me posting it here:

Life is thickly sown with thorns, and I know no other remedy than to pass quickly through them. The longer we dwell......

Such wise words and from so many years' ago too, the basics don't change much, only our ways. This kind of philosophy may have had some positive effect on him as he lived to the age of 84, a good age for those days.

Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way when you criticize them, you are a mile away from them and you have their shoes.

Better still if they are running shoes. That way when you criticise them you are even further away than a mile and you have their shoes.
