Thoughts on Circumstances

Florence Scovel Shinn

“There is an old saying that man only dares use his words for three purposes, to "heal, bless or prosper." What man says of others will be said of him, and what he wishes for another, he is wishing for himself.”

"The game of life is a game of boomerangs. Our thoughts, deeds and words return to us sooner or later with astounding accuracy." - Florence Scovel Shinn

Life Is Too Short To Be Little

"Disraeli said Life is too short to be little."

“Often we allow ourselves to be upset by small things we should despise and forget. ... Here we are on this earth, with only a few more decades to live, and we lose many irreplaceable hours brooding over grievances that, in a year's time, will be forgotten by us and by everybody."

"No, let us devote our life to worth-while actions and feelings, to great thoughts, real affections and enduring undertakings.”  - Benjamin Disraeli
