Chapter 5, Page 6, Book 15




What lies behind us and what lies before us are
small matter compared to what lies within us.

Ralph Waldo Emerson


May 6th - Love finds a way


I have found that if you love life, life will love you back.

Arthur Rubinstein

Trying to maintain control in this life is a bit like trying to maintain control on a roller coaster. The ride has its own logic and is going to go its own way, regardless of how tightly you grip the bar. There is a thrill and a power in simply surrendering to the ride and fully feeling the ups and downs of it, letting the curves take you rather than fighting them


Let a joy keep you. Reach out your hands and take it when it runs by. 

Carl Sandburg

When we see people on a roller coaster, we see that there are those with their faces tight with fear and then there are those that smile broadly, with their hands in the air, carried through the ride on a wave of freedom and joy. This powerful image reminds us that often the only control we have is choosing how we are going to respond to the ride. 

Life is like a roller coaster, live it, be happy, enjoy life.
Avril Lavigne

I have never heard it put this way, but it is as good as any logic I have heard of life:

Trying to maintain control in this life is a bit like trying to maintain control on a roller coaster

LOL never going on those roller coasters :) I am glad love always finds a way :) A friend of mine wrote a book with that title, she is waiting to get it published, but she has learned through life that indeed Love Finds a Way.

Never been on a roller coaster in my life. But I love your observation, "the only control we have is choosing how we are going to respond to the ride."
