April 22nd

"The real man smiles in trouble,
gathers strength from distress,
and grows brave by reflection."
Thomas Paine - Author
Today I needed a moment of quiet reflection
and
found it here!
*********
By three methods we may learn wisdom:
First, by reflection, which is noblest;
Second, by imitation, which is easiest;
and third by experience, which is the bitterest.
Confucius
