Reflections on Life

The real man smiles in trouble, gathers strength from distress, and grows brave by reflection”.Thomas Paine
There are times when life throws a monkey wrench at us, we tend to focus only on the fragments and the distorted images. It’s ony when we reflect back and put the pieces of puzzle together that we are able to see the big picture.

By three methods we may learn wisdom: First, by reflection, which is noblest; Second, by imitation,which is easiest; and third by experience, which is the bitterest.“- Confucius

Occasionally,life rewards us with more than we bargained for. It is then we realise that ..”It  is not by muscle, speed, or physical dexterity that great things are achieved,  but by reflection, force of character, and judgment”.– Marcus Tullius Cicero
