KARMA’S a b****!

That reminds me of a t-shirt I saw once: "Dear Karma, I Have a List of People You've Missed."   ;D

“If you are depressed, you are living in the past.
If you are anxious, you are living in the future.
If you are at peace, you are living in the present.”

— Lao Tzu

"Holding onto resentment is like taking poison and waiting for the other person to die."

I Googled this and noted that it has been attributed to dozens of individuals (e.g., Buddha, Nelson Mandela, AA, etc.)

I like that. Speaking of quote attributing, I just saw something really nice on Facebook, attributed to Mother Teresa. I looked it up on quote investigator.com and it turns out it was a college kid in 1968 who wrote it! That bugs me but people don't seem to like it if you point that sort of thing out. LOL

I live anywhere, all the time, between the mid-50s and the mid-60s.
I'm not depressed. Really, not even slightly.

Found myself in London last month, a whole load of people there, presumably all living 'in the present', looked profoundly depressed.

That geezer with the funny name was talking b---- cks!

Hmm? Oh. Well. You should hear what he says about you.

Kelley, I somehow missed your post. What was the quote, if you don't mind sharing it? (And if you'd prefer not to, I certainly understand.)

Another one I like is the (probably overused) "There are three types of lies: lies, damn lies, and statistics." I've seen that one attributed to everyone from Mark Twain to Benjamin Disraeli. I can't seem to pin down a definitive source. I should try investigator.com!

Until you make the unconscious conscious, it will direct your life and you will call it fate.
