Wise Words

So it's September, which makes me very happy as it means we are entering my favourite time of year - autumn and winter. We don't have to worry about excessive heat and the evenings are starting to get darker earlier. All in all this makes me very happy.

The day before I became sick, I bought a card as it had a wonderful verse on it. I don't often buy that kind of card, but this one seemed so perfect. And I should like to share it with you, as I think it talks a lot of sense. The words aren't new, however, they are ones that perhaps are worth trying to remember.

Achievement
is the knowledge
that you have worked hard
and done the best that is in you.
Success is being praised by others,
and that's nice, too,
but not as important or satisfying.
Always aim for achievement
and forget about success.


Wise words indeed, I feel.

They were written by Helen Hayes, and the card was produced by Rock Cottage Crafts.
