THE GEM 19 JAN 2015

THE OLD PROVERBIAL RECOVERY

FINNISH PROVERBS IN MINNESOTA

010

” Never give way to melancholy : nothing encroaches more. I fight vigorously.

One great remedy is to take short views of life.

Are you happy now ?

Are you likely to remain so till this evening ?

or next week ?

or next month?

or next year?

Then why destroy present happiness by a distant misery which may never come at all, or you may never live to see ?

For every substantial grief has twenty shadows, and most of them shadows of your own making.”

Sydney Smith.
