"Life is thickly sown with thorns, and I know no other remedy than to pass quickly through them. The longer we dwell on our misfortunes, the greater is their power to harm us." ~ Voltaire (1694–1778)
I'd never seen that quote before. Good one!
Good to se you Irish! Good quote!
Yer Lookin Mighty Froggy
And if you can pluck out the thorn - even better! I got one in my finger earlier this evening, a real yowler (through my glove!) out in the wild area I'm trying to tame around the vegetable garden. Decided to ignore it and continue my labors 'til I came back in and - with needle - dug it out.
Don't dwell in the well of smoking thoughts. They'll drown you every time.
Great quote. The more we dwell on something the more power we give it.
We have many choices in this life...the one to be free from addiction is HUGE.
Thanks for that quote IrishRose, great way to start my day.
This makes sense after you get through but not when you are stuck in the thorns and have no way out .
Can't see the forest for the trees, right? That's when your mind has to work overtime to focus.
In my youth I did a lot of rabbit hunting! I sold the rabbits for $3 each which was good money in the days of 85 cents minimum wage! But I digress!
You are never stuck in the thorns with no way out! Just turn your back and fall into them a few times, and then climb over! You can get anywhere you want to go, if you want to get there bad enough! Tommy
