|"It is better to be hated for what you are
than to be loved for what you are not."
|There are two days in every week that we should not worry about.
Two days that should be kept free from fear and apprehension.
One is YESTERDAY…with all it’s mistakes and cares, it’s faults and blunders, it’s
aches and pains. YESTERDAY has passed, forever beyond our control. All the money
in the world cannot bring back YESTERDAY. We cannot undo a single act we
performed, nor can we erase a single word we’ve said, for YESTERDAY is gone.
The other day we should not worry about is TOMORROW… with it’s impossible
adversaries, it’s burden, it’s hopeful promise or poor performance. TOMORROW is
beyond our control. TOMORROW’S Sun will rise either in glorious splendor or behind a
bank of clouds, but the Sun will indeed rise. And when it does, we have no stake in
tomorrow, for it is yet unborn.
This leaves us with only one day…TODAY.
Any person can fight the battles of just one day. It is only when we add the burdens of
YESTERDAY and TOMORROW that we break down and find ourselves enslaved by our
own feelings. It is not the experience of TODAY that drives people to discontent and
despair, it is the remorse for something that happened YESTERDAY and the dread of
what TOMORROW might bring.
Let us all therefore live one day at a time.
|A Man in the Arena
It is not the critic who counts, not the one who points out
how the strong man stumbled or how the doer of deeds
might have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the
arena, whose face is marred with sweat and dust and blood; who strives valiantly;
who errsand comes short again and again; who knows the great enthusiasm, the
great devotions, and spends himself in a worthy cause; who, if he wins, knows the
triumph of high achievement; and who, if he fails, at least fails while daring
greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know
neither victory nor defeat!
