12:42a - On Handicaps -- Helen Keller


The one resolution, which was in my mind long before it took the form of a resolution, is the key-note of my life. It is this, always to regard as mere impertinences of fate the handicaps which were placed upon my life almost at the beginning. I resolved that they should not crush or dwarf my soul, but rather be made to blossom, like Aaron's rod, with flowers.

1:35a - On Happiness -- Dale Carnegie


Did you ever see an unhappy horse? Did you ever see a bird that has the blues? One reason why birds and horses are not unhappy is because they are not trying to impress other birds and horses.
    -- Dale Carnegie

To answer his first question, actually, yes, I have, but they tend to resolve their issues quickly by dumping them, running from them, biting them if the flick of an ear or tail does not warn them off, or pasting them one with a handy hoof, and then they are not unhappy any more.

Where in all the world is nobility found without conceit? Where is there friendship without envy? Where is beauty without vanity?

We are his heirs. But he is his own heritage, the horse.

Do you give the horse his strength
or clothe his neck with a flowing mane?

Do you make him leap like a locust,
striking terror with his proud snorting?

He paws fiercely, rejoicing in his strength,
and charges into the fray.

He laughs at fear, afraid of nothing:
he does not shy away from the sword.

The quiver rattles against his side,
along with the flashing spear and lance.

In frenzied excitement he eats up the ground;
he cannot stand still when the trumpet sounds.

At the blast of the trumpet he snorts,
'Aha!' He catches the scent of battle from afar,
the shout of commanders and the battle cry.
    -- Job 39:19-25, from the NIV Compact Bible,
