but you can’t quite make it drink..
Lovely quote. As I’m realizing with quotes, every quote works well in a particular context. It’s only when you feel the need for a particular quote do you fully understand the magic.
When I look for quotes every morning from the little repository I’ve made up, it all depends on the mood. Sometimes I’m looking for some inspiration, sometimes its just laughs.. but there is a quote for every day, every situation..
Today’s quote is ‘You can take a horse to the water, but you can’t make it drink’
The big reason is that I’m really beginning to see why happiness is classified as internal. You could be in the middle of a hell-hole, yet happiness is a choice.. we choose to be happy, or not. I am of the point of view that things are well, as they are. There’s not much you can do about the big things.. can’t change what the economy looks like, can’t change tragedies that have taken place but we can definitely change little things in our life by just making conscious choices – consciously choosing to smile, to be happy..
It’s funny how I often notice that a lot of the most optimistic people around me, most expressive people have had some sort of serious tragedy/tough ongoing problem in their lives that they’ve learnt from. Not always the case though.. there are some who choose to be the potato in hot water, and crumble, others who harden and become cynical and finally some who, like the coffee bean, decide to adapt and change the hot water situation in itself..
Happiness is a choice. We’re always making a choice to be happy, or not. There’s no end to things to be sad about.. At any given time, every one of us has dung of some form thrown right at our faces..
Some complain about the stench, others use it as fuel and fertilizer..
It’s all a choice, really..
