Monday's special

Another Monday, another topic! I choose control :) You will soon understand why!

So here it goes

If everything seems under control, you're just not going fast enough.
by Mario Andretti (Italian born American Race driver. b.1940)

To get up each morning with the resolve to be happy... is to set our own conditions to the events of each day. To do this is to condition circumstances instead of being conditioned by them.
by Ralph Waldo Trine

You can not always control circumstances, but you can control your own thoughts.
by Charles Popplestown

My favourites:

To approach the stranger is to invite the unexpected, release a new force, let the genie out of the bottle. It is to start a new train of events that is beyond your control...
by T. S. Elliot

He who controls the present, controls the past. He who controls the past, controls the future.
by George Orwell



@Karen - how come? Always welcome!

Good quote. Good blog.

@Ana - thank you!

I believe that we CAN, like the quote, resolve to be happy, and I try every day!


So true Pearl!

I especially like Ralph Waldo Trine's quote.

Good choice Barb!

Some good quotes there to start our week with, Claudia. I really liked the second one best.

Diane you and Barb chose the same :)

I really enjoyed seeing this simple word become so much more meaningful. The quote my George Orwell is perfect!

P.S. Thanks for the comment on the macarons :) It made about 30 wafers (or 15 cookies). Good luck!

@Kris&Kel - thank you! I will let you know how the macarons went! Next weekend's project!

Thank you for your comments, I appreciate them all!


"A story is not like a road to follow … it's more like a house. You go inside and stay there for a while, wandering back and forth and settling where you like and discovering how the room and corridors relate to each other, how the world outside is altered by being viewed from these windows. And you, the visitor, the reader, are altered as well by being in this enclosed space, whether it is ample and easy or full of crooked turns, or sparsely or opulently furnished. You can go back again and again, and the house, the story, always contains more than you saw the last time. It also has a sturdy sense of itself of being built out of its own necessity, not just to shelter or beguile you."
