You might find your life's destination better if you remember to
ENJOY WHEN YOU CAN, ENDURE WHEN YOU MUST
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
SEE EVERYTHING; OVERLOOK A GREAT DEAL; CORRECT LITTLE
Pope John XXIII
If you put a buzzard in a pen/coop that is 6' x 8',
that is entirely open at the top,
The bird, in spite of its ability to fly
will be an absolute prisoner.
The reason is that a buzzard begins a flight from the ground
with a run of 10 to 12 feet.
Without the space to run, as its habit, it will not even attempt to fly,
but will remain a prisoner for life in a small jail with no top.
PICK BATTLES BIG ENOUGH TO MATTER, SMALL ENOUGH TO WIN
The ordinary bat that flies around at night,
a remarkable nimble creature in the air,
cannot take off from a level place.
If it is placed on the floor or flat ground,
all it can do is shuffle around helplessly and, no doubt, painfully,
until it reaches some slight elevation from which it can throw itself into the air.
Then, at once, it takes off like a flash.
DO WHAT YOU CAN, WITH WHAT YOU HAVE, WHERE YOU ARE
A bumblebee, if dropped into an open tumbler,
will be there until it dies, unless it is taken out.
It never sees the means of escape at the top,
but persists in trying to find some way out through the sides near the bottom
It will seek a way where none exists, until it completely destroys itself.
In many ways, we are like the buzzard, the bat, and the bumblebee.
We struggle about with all our problems and frustrations,
never realizing that all we have to do is look up!
That's the answer, the escape route and the solution to any problem.
JUST LOOK UP!
REMEMBER, IF YOU ARE HEADING IN THE WRONG DIRECTION,
GOD ALLOWS U-TURNS
