Blast from the past: 10 quotes that make my life better whenever I apply them

Incaseofemergency_4

These originally appeared on February 25, 2006; I happened on the post just now and immediately felt better after reading it.

Maybe you will too.

If you feel worse, perhaps bookofjoe's not for you.

You wouldn't be the first, that's for darn sure.

•••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••

If it can happen, it will happen.

Work smart, not hard. [Ray Kurzweil]

Grace is everywhere. [George Bernanos]

I can't go on; I'll go on. [Samuel Beckett]

Never complain, never explain. [Jack Kent Cooke]

Avoiding trouble is far easier than getting out of it.

It is much easier to apologize than to ask permission.

The bullet that kills you comes from a direction you never anticipated.

The hard way is the best way, not because it is the best way, but because it is the hard way.

I was never ruined but twice in my life: once, when I lost a lawsuit, and once when I won one. [Voltaire]
