Mind Over Matter - Scott Houghton

Quote: "God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, courage to change the things I can, and wisdom to know the difference." ~ Reinhold Niebuhr

My interpretation: This quote is known as the Serenity Prayer, and is a profoundly simple yet wise piece of advice, which is applicate to many situations in life. When things can be changed we may require courage to overcome any fear that is holding us back, but other times simply accepting the situation is the best response. One could argue that acceptance also requires courage.

Mind Over Matter - Scott Houghton

Quote: "This too shall pass." ~ Persian Adage

My interpretation: This old saying is an extremely useful one when going through difficult or troubling times and is almost always true. The mind has the tendency to lie to us about the transient nature of negative feelings, emotions, and beliefs, and what may seem like a never-ending thunderstorm, is really just a passing cloud with a rainbow on the other side.
