I briefly did therapy, but after a while, I realised it is just like a farmer
complaining about the weather. You can't fix the weather - you just have to get on with it.
Will it come like a change in the weather?
W. H. Auden
Will its greeting be courteous or rough?
Will it alter my life altogether?
O tell me the truth about love.
And she was fair as is the rose in May.
Man has been endowed with reason, with the power to create, so that he can add to what he's been given. But up to now, he hasn't been a creator, only a
destroyer. Forests keep disappearing, rivers dry up, wild life's become extinct, the climate's ruined, and the land grows poorer and uglier every day.
There are two powers at which men should never grumble - the weather and their wives.
Must, bid the Morn awake,
Sad Winter now declines,
Each Bird doth choose a mate,
This day's Saint Valentine's;
For that good Bishop's sake
Get up, and let us see
What Beauty it shall be
That Fortune us assigns.
Beauty for some provides escape,
Who gain a happiness in eyeing
The gorgeous buttocks of the ape
Or Autumn sunsets exquisitely dying.
Silence at the proper season is wisdom, and better than any speech.
You can never be an entrepreneur if you're afraid to lose money. It's like being a pilot who is afraid of bad weather.
Peter de Savary
Crabbed age and youth cannot live together:
The Passionate Pilgrim
Youth is full of pleasure, age is full of care;
Youth like summer morn, age like winter weather;
Youth like summer brave, age like winter bare.
Men are April when they woo, December when they wed: maids are May when they are maids, but the sky changes when they are wives.
As You Like It
Shall I compare thee to a summer's day? Thou art more lovely and more temperate.
