"When a man points a finger at someone else, he should remember that four of his fingers are pointing at himself."
Louis Nizer

I love this quote because it has all the right ingredients for a good quote except one. Accuracy. Go on, try it. Point your finger and count how many are pointing at yourself. Nobody likes a smartarse but isn't it great when a smartarse fouls up? Nice to know we are all human :lol:

To be fair, the Tim Curry quote was really Richard O'Brien coming out of Tim Curry's mouth. Or was the quote Frank N Furter's?!

With everything that has happened to you, you can either feel sorry for yourself or treat what has happened as a gift. Everything is either an opportunity to grow or an obstacle to keep you from growing. You get to choose.

I got sober. I stopped killing myself with alcohol. I began to think: 'Wait a minute - if I can stop doing this, what are the possibilities?' And slowly it dawned on me that it was maybe worth the risk.

“I have just three things to teach: simplicity, patience, compassion. These three are your greatest treasures. Simple in actions and in thoughts, you return to the source of being. Patient with both friends and enemies, you accord with the way things are. Compassionate toward yourself, you reconcile all beings in the world.”

~ Lao Tzu from Tao te Ching

“See if you can catch yourself complaining, in either speech or thought, about a situation you find yourself in, what other people do or say, your surroundings, your life situation, even the weather. To complain is always non-acceptance of what is. It invariably carries an unconscious negative charge. When you complain, you make yourself into a victim. When you speak out, you are in your power. So change the situation by taking action or by speaking out if necessary or possible; leave the situation or accept it. All else is madness.”

― Eckhart Tolle
