“In Every Problem There is a Lesson to Learn”


“We’re all going to die, all of us, what a circus!  That alone should make us love each other but it doesn’t.  We are terrorized and flattened by trivialities; we are eaten up by nothing.”  (Charles Bukowski)



“We can either own our circumstances and be creative in them, or we can throw up our hands and say, I cannot be held accountable because the conditions are not ideal.”   (Patti Digh, Creative Is a Verb:  If You’re Alive, You’re Creative)



“You’ve got choices, like any other creature.  You can stumble down that road, pretending you can’t help it.  You can curl up and die of regret and sorrow for what you’ve done.  Or you can get up and fight, even though the battle might be lost.”   (Kersten Hamilton, Tyger Tyger)



“We must assume every event has significance and contains a message that somehow pertains to our questions. This especially applies to what we used to call bad things. The challenge is to find the silver lining in every event, no matter how negative.”   (James Redfield, The Celestine Prophecy)



“In every problem there is a lesson to learn, an asset to acquire, a rest to restore, a bitterness to sweeten, a load to lighten or a price to pay.”    (Ikechukwu Joseph)
