“Everything Will Work Out”


“There is something infantile in the presumption that somebody else has the responsibility to give your life meaning and point . . .  The truly adult view, by contrast, is that our life is as meaningful, as full and as wonderful, as we choose to make it.”        (Richard Dawkins, The Blind Watchmaker)



“Any fact facing us, however difficult, even seemingly hopeless, is not so important as our attitude towards that fact.  How you think about a fact may defeat you before you ever do anything about it.  You may permit a fact to overwhelm you mentally before you deal with it actually.  On the other hand, a confident and optimistic thought pattern can overcome or modify the fact altogether.”         (Norman Vincent Peale)



“None of us can predict with certainty the twists and turns our lives will take.  Life is uncertain, the future unknown.  This is neither good nor bad.  It just is, like gravity.  Yet the task remains: how to master our own fate, even so.”        (Jim Collins and Morten Hansen, Great by Choice: Uncertainty, Chaos, and Luck — Why Some Thrive Despite Them All)



“Everything will work out in the end.  If it’s not working out, it’s not the end.”      (Author Unknown)
