‘Tis better to have loved and lost than never to have loved at all.’ Alfred Lord Tennyson ‘In Memoriam’

‘Too many cooks spoil the broth’ but ‘Many hands make light work.’

‘Look before you leap’ but ‘He who hesitates is lost.’
‘Until we take charge of our attitudes, thinking and behaviour patterns, they are in control of us and our life and cannot do anything but run it for us.’ Anon.
‘Every day and every hour and minute within it is a new beginning. It makes no difference whether we failed or succeeded in the past. To get things as right as we can in the present and future, and to love our life and everything that is in it to the best of our ability, is all that’s required from us. It’s not where we have been that counts, but what we are doing now and where we are going.’ Anon.
‘The ability to bring happiness to others, regardless of our own problems, is a gift the Universe freely puts into everybody’s hands. It costs nothing and brings much joy to both giver and taker. All we have to do is take possession and use it whenever possible.’ Anon.
‘We all want progress, but if you are on the wrong road, progress means doing an about-turn and walking back to the right road. In that case, the person who turns back soonest is the most progressive.’ C. S. Lewis
‘Into each new lifetime we are born weak, but hopefully we shall be much stronger and wiser when we are once more ready to leave the earthly plane behind. What we do between these two developmental points depends entirely on the choices we make, so choose wisely.’ Anon.
‘Tough times never last, but tough people do. Experiencing difficult times alone can make us strong enough to endure them. And don’t forget that many a time good things have to fall apart, to make room for better ones. If we spend eighty percent of our time focusing on a problem and only twenty percent on solving it, the result is obvious. Wise ones turn within and consult with their inner guidance to show the way.’ Anon.
‘Defeat is but a temporary condition. Giving up is what makes it permanent. When we fail over and over again but persist, we succeed in the end. That’s our reward. Without being willing to work hard on what we hope to achieve, there will be no success. Every minute of every day brings us fresh opportunities for turning things round and with it our whole life. Whenever we are tempted to give up, it’s good to remind ourselves why we started and that the strongest steel is forged in the hottest fire.’ Anon.
‘Never regret anything. If something is good, be happy and grateful. When difficult and traumatic experiences come your way, accept that in truth they are merely passing phases and lessons you have come to take part in, to help you grow in wisdom and understanding. And whenever you have to work your way through hell, if you just keep going, sooner or later you are sure to come out the other end. You will we renewed and restored and if you have accepted your lessons, the Universe will have helped you to evolve into much better human being.’ Anon.
