a valuable bit of wisdom

23 02 2011

I just found my new favorite quote.  I’ll have to figure out a way to have this with me all the time….

“If you are depressed, you are living in the past.  If you are anxious, you are living in the future.  If you are at peace, you are living in the present.”
-Lao Tzu

Mmmm, yes.  Yes, indeed.  It’s a good thing I’m afraid of pain–elsewise, I might have gotten it tattoo’d on my arm or something.  But getting a tattoo is the lazy way to remember.  It will do me far better to live it….not read it.  Um, it will also be more difficult.
