Discover Wisdom

Quotes and Notes #90, January 30

“We don’t receive wisdom; we must discover it for ourselves after a journey that no one can take for us or spare us.”–Marcel Proust

Whatever happens each day, good, bad, or mediocre, may be looked at and remembered as valuable lessons of things to be repeated—or not. My mother tells of her father, a salesman, who came home after an unsuccessful work day.

“How was your day, Daddy,” she asked. He replied,”I had a wonderful day, I didn’t sell a thing.” When his daughter asked how that made a good day he answered, “I found a number of places I don’t have to go back to.” We choose our own attitude. Today, help an old lady across the street—physically or figuratively.

Everything is going to be all right
