Sick, but healed by words.

Christian D. Larson wrote down these lines which would simultaneously serve as my lunch, and a therapy to my not-too-strong body today.

“Promise Yourself
To be so strong that nothing
can disturb your peace of mind.

To talk health, happiness, and prosperity
to every person you meet.

To make all your friends feel
that there is something in them

To look at the sunny side of everything
and make your optimism come true.

To think only the best, to work only for the best,
and to expect only the best.

To be just as enthusiastic about the success of
as you are about your own.

To forget the mistakes of the past
and press on to the greater achievements of the

To wear a cheerful countenance at all times
and give every living creature you meet a smile.

To give so much time to the improvement of
that you have no time to criticize others.

To be too large for worry, too noble for anger, too
strong for fear,
and too happy to permit the presence of trouble.

To think well of yourself and to proclaim this fact to
the world,
not in loud words but great deeds.

To live in faith that the whole world is on your side
so long as you are true to the best that is in you.”


It's a sick Wednesday over here. Though I've got medical prescriptions from a health facility, these quotes have offered me so much mental relief, and I felt I should share them here.
