When a translation job, for which the green light was supposed to be given by EOD yesterday, failed to materialise, one of my team members stoically commented: “Don’t grieve for what doesn’t come“, which apparently was one of Wayne Dyer’s favourite phrases.
It actually goes back to Jalāl ad-Dīn Muhammad Rūmī, known as Rumi, who said:
Don’t grieve for what doesn’t come.
Some things that don’t happen
Keep disasters from happening.
