Disappointment (Unmet Expectation)


Riches do not exhilarate us so much with their possession
as they torment us with their loss.
- Epicurus

Expectations Diminish Joy.
- Anonymous

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

Our best successes often come after our greatest disappointments.
- Henry Ward Beecher

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


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.

It is nearly a certainty that some
of your expectations will not be met today -
choose Joy anyway.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie
