Thought(s) 4 the Week: Stop Longing for "Easy"

Of course there will be disappointments
and the way will not always be as I expected it.
But if it seemed easy, then that would be the time
to worry that I am on the wrong path.
- Anne Perry 

When life is too easy for us, we must beware

or we may not be ready to meet the blows
which sooner or later come to everyone, rich or poor.
- Eleanor Roosevelt

Life is not easy for any of us.
But what of that?
We must have perseverance
and above all confidence in ourselves.
We must believe that we are gifted for something
and that this thing must be attained.
- Marie Curie 

Rarely do we find men who willingly engage in hard, solid thinking.
There is an almost universal quest
for easy answers and half-baked solutions.
Nothing pains some people more than having to think.
- Martin Luther King, Jr.

Do not pray for easy lives.
Pray to be stronger men.
- John F. Kennedy
