Quote of the Day 9/18/14

18 Sep

004

The quote today has its origins in ancient Persia. However, it has been used by nearly every generation since.

“This too shall pass.”

This is one that is very close to my heart as it has helped me through some rough times. No matter how difficult things get, I know that they will get better, eventually. It speaks of hope, a sustaining force.

A similar quote that has been used throughout history is, “All glory is fleeting.” So enjoy your 15 minutes of fame when you get it. For it won’t last long.

Have a great day today!! 🙂

    ‘And this too shall pass’ – a wonderful phrase that we use in our household. And that flip-side – fleeting glory – is equally true! Actually, I suspect that these days Warhol’s fifteen minutes has become more like about five seconds, but hey…

      True. everything is faster and hence shorter lived.
