Thursday Thirteen

I have heard there are troubles of more than one kind. Some come from ahead and some come from behind. But I’ve bought a big bat. I’m all ready you see. Now my troubles are going to have troubles with me!
Theodor Seuss Geisel

Take chances, make mistakes. Pain nourishes your courage. You have to fail in order to practice being brave. 
-Mary Tyler Moore

"You have been criticizing yourself for years, and it hasn't worked. 
Try approving of yourself and see what happens." 
- Louise L. Hay

"The hardest thing you can do is look back and see what the person you love has done to you."
-Sammi Giancola

“Discipline doesn’t cost you. It pays, over and over again. Discipline makes what you already have, more valuable. And with discipline you can create much more new value. Do what is in the best interest of everyone involved, even when it is not comfortable or easy at the moment. Long after the immediate inconvenience and discomfort are gone, you’ll be enjoying the rewards of choosing to discipline yourself.”
- Ralph Marston

Real difficulties can be overcome;
it is only the imaginary ones
that are unconquerable.
-Theodore N. Veil

Some lose all mind and become soul, insane. Some lose all soul and become mind, intellectual. Some lose both and become accepted.
Charles Bukowski
‎"The difference between perseverance and obstinacy is that one comes from a strong will, and the other from a strong won't." ~Henry Ward Beecher

Age wrinkles the body. Quitting wrinkles the soul.
Douglas MacArthur
Life’s tough, it’s tougher when you’re stupid.

John Wayne

Many failures of life are people
who did not realize how close they
were to success when they gave up.
-Thomas Edison

"In three words I can sum up everything I've learned about life: it goes on."
Robert Frost
If someone you love hurts you cry a river, build a bridge, and get over it.

Mr Edison and I share a birthday (not the same year, though!). Thanks for including him. I also appreciate the T.N. Veil quote.
