Turn Always To The Sunny Side Of Things

Monday, June 08, 2009
“What a fine lesson is conveyed to the mind -- to take no note of time but by its benefits, to watch only for the smiles and neglect the frowns of fate, to compose our lives of bright and gentle moments, turning always to the sunny side of things, and letting the rest slip for our imaginations, unheeded or forgotten! How different from the common art of self-tormenting!”

The brilliant yellow flower is enhanced by the slight, but bright, red accents. It is amazing how nature just knows how make the stylish details that make the flower even more beautiful...

I love that photo. But, I super-duper love that quote. I'm going to copy it over to my blog so that I will always have it at my finger tips. It's something I could use reminding of from time to time. I will post a link back here also.
I hope you don't mind.

ROSIDAH said...

I don't mind. You're welcome to blog about this quote :). The original source I have found it on is Thinkexist.com

Dianne said...

I do believe you are the queen of multi-meme!! good work :)

I love the flower

Raven said...

Lovely shot. Great quote and one I needed to read today. I usually live by that philosophy but at the moment am caught in a pit of gloom and not only not looking for the sunny side but pulling the shades closed. Sigh.

srp said...

A beautiful opening... a beginning...
What type of flower will this be?

Marie Reed said...
