be the change

(ancient Greek style)

In every crisis bear in mind the examples of those who in similar circumstances lost control of themselves, were taken by surprise, or complained bitterly. Where did their actions get them? no where. Do you want to end up in the same place? Why not leave these emotional outbursts to those who are controlled or distracted by them. Concentrate instead on taking advantage of the crisis, using it as raw material with which to build something beautiful and good.

Marcus Aurelius 121-180 AD (writer, philosopher & Emperor of Rome )
