THE GEM 10 APRIL 2016 : Better to turn out of the road a mile than to go straight ahead into danger. | THE OLD PROVERBIAL RECOVERY

” 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.
