Serenity comes when you trade expectations for acceptance. - unknown source

The pain is sometimes preferable to the treatment - indian Proverb

Thanks Roger. I am only really just coming to understand the value of some of the various proverbs and quotes and they are attainable.

my favourite quote sadly is far from profund in fact it is extremely silly, but it has tickled me since the first time I read it.

and my other favourite quote is about gardening


 "There can be no other occupation like gardening in which, if you were to creep up behind someone at their work, you would find them smiling."  ~Mirabel Osler

Mirabel Osler was a gardener who wrote about her experiences of her English garden, her book are wonderful full of wit. She was a very clever and talented lady her most well known book is A Gentle Plea for Chaos: The Enchantment of Gardening  and is a wonderful book if you like gardening, even if you are not a green fingered type, there is so much sense in her books and humour they are worth reading.

Carrie I want to hear the silly one too! The more silliness in life the better.

Oh there you go Roger, there's my food for thought contribution! I did post one the other day but it was rubbish so I removed it.

Okay, but I warned you, it is certainly not profound hehehehe

Quote
" Life is like a roll of toilet paper, the nearer the end it gets the faster it goes, make the most of the moment."

I appologise, it just tickles me.

decided to make amends I thought I would post a sensible one that I like

LOl why thank you, but really with that site, it doesn't let you play with too much of the code, it tells you what you can play with. It can actually be easier doing your own code cos you have your own way of writing it if that makes any sense, playing with other peoples can be more frustrating as you cant get it to do what you want LOL

I can just imagine it Herb, but it would be brilliant I am sure. Just imagine though some of the recipes could be somewhat interesting  hee20hee20hee certainly nothing as mundane as sugar cookies

Thank you for writing about Mirabel Osler, Carrie. I hadn't heard of her, but I like the sound of her writing. I have just googled her book on Amazon - sounds just up my street!

Your welcome Aggie, she was an amazing gardener and an amazing writer, her gardens were not the typical neat perfectly edged topiary but it took a lot of work to create the natural chaos that she did, they looked amazing and my idea of how a country garden should look. If you get any of her books, enjoy them, they are worth every penny, IMHO of course  Kiss

I'd love for this thread to be bought to life again! I've just skimmed through and there are some great quotes and stuff on here.

So I'll add a couple of contributions of my own:

'You make a life out of what you have, not what you're missing' - by Kate Morton, from the book 'The Forgotten Garden'.

And probably my favourite quote of all:

'Reality is free from all notions...it is our duty to transcend words and concepts to be able to encounter reality' - by Thich Nhat Hanh, from the book 'Living Buddha, Living Christ'.

this is a quote i found today I have decided i like

Donít wait until everything is just right. It will never be perfect. There will always be challenges, obstacles and less than perfect conditions. So what. Get started now. With each step you take, you will grow stronger and stronger, more and more skilled, more and more self-confident, and more and more successful.

Some people think that to be strong is to never feel pain.

In reality, the strongest people are the ones who  feel it,  understand it, and accept it....
