"A man will sometimes devote all his life to the development
of one part of his body - the wishbone."
Robert Frost Funny |
"Stop the mindless wishing that things would be different.
Rather than wasting time and emotional and spiritual energy in
explaining why we don't have what we want, we can start to pursue
other ways to get it."
Greg Anderson Time |
"A wish is a desire without an attempt."
Farmer Digest I Wish |
"Wishes and goals are two different things; one is just a thought the other
is an action plan."
Catherine Pulsifer Goal |
"Thousands of people wish they could have a better job, or a new car,
or a better home, or a different lifestyle but they do not take any action
at all to turn their wishes into a possibility. Then there are those who hope
for a better job, or a new house or whatever but take some sort of action
at least to put the possibility wheels in motion."
Catherine Pulsifer Hope |
"If you wish to be happy right from the beginning of your day,
then it is about time to leave behind your past."
Lorin Hopper, Wake Up Happy Being Happy |
"Our destiny changes with our thought; we shall become what we
wish to become, do what we wish to do, when our habitual thought
corresponds with our desire."
Orison Sweet Marden Change |
"We are responsible for what we are, and we wish ourselves to be,
we have the power to make ourselves. If what we are now has been
the result of our past actions, it certainly follows that whatever
we wish to be in future can be produced by our present actions;
so we have to know how to act."
Swami Vivekananda Future |
"How can we resent the life we've created for ourselves? Who's to blame,
who's to credit, but us? Who can change it, any time we wish, but us?"
Richard Bach Regret |
"While these feelings roll around in our mind every day, the
wish to change becomes even stronger to the point where we
desperately hope for some miracle. But, as we also know, miracles are probably less than the chances of winning the lottery. To wish for changes in your life is no better than playing that long shot at the gaming table, the horse races, or the lottery pool. If you think that positive and needed changes in your life will happen this way then your chances to experience those changes are remote if not impossible."
