"Don't make the mistake of healing an internal problem with an external fix." "I bargained with life for a penny and life would pay no more, however I begged at evening when I counted my scanty store. For life is just an employer he gives what you ask but once you have set the wages why, you must bear the task. I worked for a menials hire only to learn dismayed, that any wage I would have asked of life... Life would have paid." -My Wage, Jessie B. Rittenhouse. "Never play with the feelings of others because you might win the game but the risk is that you will surely lose the person for a lifetime." -Shakespeare "...Motivation pervades all action, it is important that we have a positive motivation. Whatever we are involved in, whether it's politics, education, medicine, law, engineering, science, business or industry, the nature of our motivation determines the character of our work."~Dali Lama. "I got to thinking about relationships and partial lobotomies: two seemingly different ideas that might just be perfect together—like chocolate and peanut butter." ~ Carrie Bradshaw.
