The 08/04/13 Joy Jar

4 Aug

Moi’s computer is dying and it is an XP machine and Microsoft will no longer be supporting XP. Moi would love to call the softies a group of money-grubbing weasels because she and countless others love our XP. So moi is on the hunt for a new computer and has started researching systems and brands. She hopes to have her new machine by September 1. Still, moi loved XP, the operating system for techno-idiots. Today’s deposit into the ‘Joy Jar’ is embracing change even if it was forced upon you by money-grubbing weasels.

Change does not roll in on the wheels of inevitability, but comes through continuous struggle. And so we must straighten our backs and work for our freedom. A man can’t ride you unless your back is bent.
Martin Luther King, Jr.

When we are no longer able to change a situation – we are challenged to change ourselves.
Viktor E. Frankl

It may be hard for an egg to turn into a bird: it would be a jolly sight harder for it to learn to fly while remaining an egg. We are like eggs at present. And you cannot go on indefinitely being just an ordinary, decent egg. We must be hatched or go bad.
C. S. Lewis

All changes, even the most longed for, have their melancholy; for what we leave behind us is a part of ourselves; we must die to one life before we can enter another.
Anatole France

Everyone thinks of changing the world, but no one thinks of changing himself.
Leo Tolstoy

To improve is to change; to be perfect is to change often.
Winston Churchill

If you do not change direction, you may end up where you are heading.
Lao Tzu

If you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change.
Wayne Dyer

God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.
Reinhold Niebuhr
