Chapter 8, Page 29, Book 17

Words of Wisdom....
No one can ruin your day without YOUR permission. 

Most people will be about as happy, as they decide to be. 

Others can stop you temporarily, but only you can do it permanently.
Whatever you are willing to put up with, is exactly what you will have.
Success stops when you do.
When your ship comes in.... make sure you are willing to unload it.
You will never have it all together.
Life is a journey...not a destination. Enjoy the trip!
The biggest lie on the planet: When I get what I want I will be happy.
The best way to escape your problem is to solve it.
 I've learned that ultimately , 'takers' lose and 'givers' win.
Life's precious moments don't have value, unless they are shared.
If you don't start, it's certain you won't arrive.
We often fear the thing we want the most.
Everyone hears what you say. Friends listen to what you have to say. Best friends listen to what you don't say!
Yesterday was the deadline for all complaints.
Look for opportunities...not guarantees.
Life is what's coming....not what was.
Success is getting up one more time.
Now is the most interesting time of all.
When things go wrong.....don't go with them.
Sometimes the majority only means that all the fools are on the same side.
God can mend all broken hearts. You just have to give him all the pieces.
A person who asks a question might be a fool for five minutes, but a person who doesn't ask, is a fool forever...
A best friend is like a four leaf clover... hard to find, and lucky to have.
A friend is someone who reaches for your hand but touches your heart.
A coincidence is when God performs a miracle, and decides to remain anonymous.
I don't have to attend every argument I'm invited to.
Our eyes are placed in front because it is more important to look ahead than to look back.
Your worst days are never so bad that you are beyond the reach of God's grace... and your best days are never so good that you are beyond the need of God's grace.

Who is wise…

The invariable mark of wisdom is to see the miraculous in the common.

Ralph Waldo Emerson

Information is at our fingertips, only an app, newsfeed, or internet search away. It bombards us constantly, but sometimes taking in information is like trying to drink from a firehose!

Wisdom, however, is more elusive. Wisdom is more than just knowing things. Wisdom helps us navigate this world with good choices.  Wisdom leads to discipline in what we say and do, to richness in our relationships with the people around us. The God given gift of wisdom develops and deepens over time.

The seat of knowledge is in the head, of wisdom, in the heart. 

William Hazlit

I liked Words of Wisdom. Kind of like reading Proverbs in the Bible. God does say that if we ask for wisdom, he will give it to us.

Thank you for that quote--"No one can ruin your day without your permission." I think that's something I need to hear! And Emerson is always a giver of wise advice!

Oh Lady, I enjoyed a smile at the four leaf clover adage. This is a good pleasant read, Thanks. One where anyone could glean a harvest!


wisdom does indeed give us the discipline we need to move forward in our days and nights. "No one can ruin your day without YOUR permission."

What great 'isms'!
My favorite is the one about God performing miracles but remaining anonymous.
