Disappointment

Expectation is the root of all heartache.
- William Shakespeare

Never succumb to the temptation of bitterness.
- Martin Luther King, Jr.

People generally complain about only two things:
when they have less than yesterday,
and when they have less than their neighbor.
- jlh


Before you say, "no, no, that isn't true," consider that having a pain today is having less good health than yesterday, and aging is having less youth than yesterday.

Choose to be as a young child - fully awake, eager for the next experience.
- jlh


As we age, we experience disappointments, and then develop a fear of the unfamiliar. Consciously adopt the mindset of a young child, to whom all of life is a grand adventure.
