Quote of the Day

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.

“The cure for boredom is curiosity. 
There is no cure for curiosity.”
