Wisdom: Series 1

Wisdom (Series 1)

For many years I have saved favorite quotes by copying them in a special notebook. A few years ago I gathered together fifty favorites to give to a friend for her birthday. Today I list ten of these pieces of wisdom.

  1. Nobody really changes, but we can figure out better ways of being who we are!   Shelby Hearon; Group Therapy
  2. You can’t stop the waves, but you can learn to surf. Zen
  3. Happiness doesn’t have to be learned, but arrived at by unlearning our unhappiness. Karen Goldman; Angel Voices
  4. If you stop trying to make yourself into more than you are out of fear that you are less than you are, whoever you really are will be a lot lighter and happier, and easier to live with, too.  Jon Kabat-Zinn; Mindfulness Meditation
  5. Laughter can add more years to your life than step class. Keds
  6. Life is an internal affair. Bottorf
  7. If I keep a green bough in my heart, the singing bird will come. Chinese proverb
  8. Distinguish between problems and annoyances.
  9. Worry is the creative misuse of imagination.
  10.  Control is an illusion!

About twofelines

What to say? I love my family and friends. I also love kids, cats, and books. Oh, and potato chips and Cheez-its. I am a retired teacher who still loves to be in the classroom, so now I am a substitute teacher.
