Let us rise up and be thankful,
for if we didn’t learn a lot today,
at least we learned a little,
and if we didn’t learn a little,
at least we didn’t get sick,
and if we got sick,
at least we didn’t die;
so, let us be thankful.

-The Buddha

Why worry?
There are only two things in life to worry about: either you are sick or you are well.
If you are well there is nothing to worry about.
If you are sick there are two things to worry about: you will get better or you will die...
If you get better there is nothing to worry about.
if you die then you have two things to worry about: either you will go to Heaven or you will go to Hell.
If you go to Heaven there is nothing to worry about.
If you go to Hell you will be too busy shaking hands with all your friends to have time to worry!

~Irish saying

I was skimming through Bartlett's Familiar Quotations earlier (Yes, really. I had my reasons.) and I noticed how many of the quotations refer to other things-and sometimes not so much a reference as two or more people having kind of the same idea. And then I stumbled across the latter quotation in a catalog, and the former on someone else's blog, and I just kind of felt like sharing. They're sort of variations on "Don't sweat the small stuff, and it's all small stuff", I guess.

In other news, I'm not allowed to buy any more books this month. Or until I read some of the ones I've got, at least. Also, I'm terribly excited to discover that Borders has started carrying Pocky-I got blueberry.

I made banana nut bread tonight. I used the same recipe I always use, but it was so salty-I don't know what went wrong. Well, obviously, too much salt, but I don't know why it would be different this time.
