Hello, this is Sunday Wisdoms! Every week for 52 weeks, I’ll share 5 ideas/quotes/passages from my commonplace book that resonated with me during the past week. Occasionally, there will be ideas from me too. Take what you can get. Your mileage may vary. Check out the past issues of Sunday Wisdoms here. This is Week 7 out of 52.
Athlete Jackie Joyner-Korsee: “For me the joy of athletics has never resided in winning… I derive just as much happiness from the process as from the results. I don’tmind losing as long as I see improvement or I feel I’ve done as well as i possibly could. If I lose, I just go back to the travk and work some more.”
Writer Rebecca Solnit: “Hope is an embrace of the unknown and the unknowable. ”
Victor Frankl: “He who knows the why for his existence can bear almost any how.”
Marcus Aurelius: “It can ruin your life only if it ruins your character.”
Ryan Holiday: “Living is an active term. We must have the courageto get out and do, to make the first move to act and direct our course. A passive existence is one in which life happens to us, and often not for the better.”
Till next week. Always grateful, Claire
