Acceptance of what has happened is the first step to overcoming the consequences of any misfortune. William James

Preach the gospel at all times; when necessary use words. 
St Francis of Assisi 

My dears, apart from Anatole France and Albert Schweitzer, there is no man interested in anything but sex.
Barbara Amiel, Lady Black, quoted in Tom Bowyer's 'Conrad and Lady Black'

...round a table delicately spread, three or four may sit in choice repast or five at the most. Who otherwise shall dine, are like a troop marauding for their prey. 
Archestratus, a Greek poet from the 4th century B.C. who wrote a long poem called 'Gastronomy' and was called the Hesiod of gluttons. His work only survives in quotations.

Procrastination is the fear of success... Because success is heavy, it carries a responsibility with it, it is much easier to procrastinate and live on the "someday I'll" philosophy.

Denis Waitley

Meanings are not determined by situations, but we determine ourselves by the meanings we give to situations.
Alfred Adler

Every blessing, when ignored, becomes a curse. 

Paulo Coelho
