QUOTESE

As a young Army man in my 20's in the 70's, I started the habit of memorizing quotes such as "The pursuit, even of the best things, ought to be calm and tranquil." - Marcus Tullius Cicero

Quotes of that kind helped me to have a much more fertile mind.

Nothing more impairs authority than a too frequent or indiscreet use of it. If thunder itself were to be continual, it would excite no more terror than the noise of a mill. - A. Kingston

One of my favorite gratitude quotes is an expression of *anticipatory* gratitude:
"Give thanks for unknown blessings already on their way" ...

And that because it helps heal us, it helps encourage us BEFORE the needed stuff, BEFORE the fully appreciated stuff shows up.

It's like saying: "I betcha sumptin GOOD is gonna happen to me, SOON!" ...

You'll do more GOOD if you aim to SERVE more than you aim to PLEASE.
