What we think about

I'm not pollyannish. I don't pretend that there are not bad things going on, now and nearly always. But we have the option of dwelling on good or bad. We have the option of thinking about the evil that always dwells among us as men. Or we can know that there is good coming, and that there are men and women who seek to do good, creative, and beautiful things. This is a reminder of that.

"If you think about disaster, you will get it. Brood about death and you hasten your demise. Think positively and masterfully, with confidence and faith, and life becomes more secure, more fraught with action, richer in achievement and experience."
