the road less fettered (#15)

by Ray Reuter on February 22, 2018

The Road Less Fettered has been traveled before by many wise and wonderful people. Below are six more of my favorite quotes that are worth pondering and lead to unfettering …

A man cannot be comfortable without his own approval.
—Mark Twain

Pride makes us artificial and humility makes us real.
—Thomas Merton

Wild animals run from the dangers they actually see, and once they have escaped them worry no more. We however are tormented alike by what is past and what is to come. A number of our blessings do us harm, for memory brings back the agony of fear while foresight brings it on prematurely. No one confines his unhappiness to the present.

Neither a wise man nor a brave man lies down on the tracks of history
to wait for the train of the future to run over him.

—Dwight D. Eisenhower

Easy choices, hard life. Hard choices, easy life.
—Jerry Gregorek

“No” is a complete sentence, and so often we forget that.
When we don’t want to do something, we can simply smile and say “No.”
We don’t have to explain ourselves, we can just say “No.”
Love yourself enough to be able to say “Yes” or “No.”
—Susan Gregg
