“Nothing stops the man who desires to achieve. Every obstacle is simply a course to develop his achievement muscle.”
“In the face of an obstacle which is impossible to overcome, stubbornness is stupid.”
Simone de Beauvoir
Eric and Simone were both right. ~Lorna____________________________________
I hope the move goes well, and that it is a positive experience for you all.
de Beauvoir's quote resonates with me more, but then fierce ambition is not one of my qualities. I remember an old rock song called "The Tighter You Pull, the Harder It Gets".
Both of these bring me to the very famous aphorism: "God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference."(Saint Francis of Assisi)Wishing you a lovely weekend.;))xo
Faced with this particular obstacle, I would be more likely to agree with Simone.
