Forget it!

To forgive is wisdom, to forget is genius.

And easier.

Because it’s true.

It’s a new world every heart beat.

Joyce Cary

Joyce Cary, born in Northern Ireland  was a prolific novelist whose diverse works drew on his experiences living in Ireland, in Nigeria while working for the British Colonial Service, and in England. His best-known books include Mister Johnson (1939), the story of a young Nigerian’s tragic dealings with the British Colonial regime, and The Horse’s Mouth (1944), about an anarchic painter, which was made into a film written by, and starring, Alec Guinness.

 

I have never ever read something so true!!! Thank you, Goodreads!  This is just genius! Enjoy!!!

Were you happy today?

I just read this brilliant phrase – yes, courtesy of Goodreads of course –  and gave me food for thought, and inevitably I discover that today – as yesterday – my little one made me happy. I was happy with my actions of the day, I was happy on how the day went, I was happy to see my little one be happy.

The days that make us happy make us wise .

John Masefield

So, following Masefield phrase, I can say, happily, that today I am wiser than yesterday.

Enjoy, and have a happy week. Be wiser.

 

 

Note on Masefield :

As a young man, English poet John Masefield (born June 1, 1878) always had his nose in a book. His aunt did not approve, so she encouraged him to break his “addiction” by joining the crew of the HMS Conway. On board, Masefield actually had more time to read than he ever had on land. Soon enough, he was even writing his own stories and poems.
