Quote of the Day

“Men occasionally stumble over the truth, but most of them pick themselves up and hurry off as if nothing ever happened,” quipped Winston Churchill.

 

I like the snarkiness of a lot of Winston Churchill’s quips, but several contain some wisdom too.  How many times have I found (unpleasant) truth but then ignored what I didn’t want to see?  Life usually offers a great deal of feedback in increasingly painful ways until people finally get the point and make some changes.  The sooner I pick up on the little hints, the less dramatic the lesson.   Maybe you can learn (the less painful way) from my experience; pay attention to the little disquiets and moments when you have the chance to see some truth.  The temporary unpleasantness of the life lesson is a chance to grow and avoid a lot worse down the road.
