Difficult People

Difficult people are those who impede action. Their motivations may differ, and our opinions of them may vary, but they stand between us and our ability to make something happen...
(Sandra A. Crowe, Since Strangling Isn't An Option, p. 48)

In dealing with difficult people, I try to remember that everything that irritates us about others can lead us to an understanding of ourselves.
(Mayor of Atlanta Bill Cunningham in Since Strangling Isn't An Option, by Sandra A. Crowe, p. 238)

In those for whom alienation from everything and everyone has become a way of life, you will note suffering from depression, anxiety, and even physical deterioration, which often results in institualization or death.
(Dr. Wayne W. Dyer, The Sky's The Limit, p. 288)

You Done Me Wrong

Does another do me wrong? Let him look to it. The disposition was his and the activity was his. I have what universal nature wills me to have, and I do what my own nature wills me to do.
(Marcus Aurelius, Meditations, Chapter V, paragraph 25)

Your Weaknesses

You know your weaknesses. You also know the situations in which your weaknesses are most vulnerable. Stay out of those situations.

Every achievement worth remembering is stained with the blood of diligence and scarred by the wounds of disappointment.

Happy People

The happiest people in the world are not those who have no problems, but the people who have learned to live with those things that are less than perfect.

It may be difficult to heal our bodies and minds after years of polluting ourselves with chemicals and negative thinking, but we do have that ability.
(Perry Tilleraas, The Color Of Light, 3 June)


I heard that later today we could expect Spring to arrive.  There is some confusion.  This morning when I looked outside for the first time snow was falling.  At 3:00 p.m. it is no longer snowing but the roof of the house across the street is snow covered.
