Words to LiveBy

Unfortunately, sometimes one can't do what one thinks is right without making someone else unhappy.

W. Somerset Maugham

I found this quote years ago while reading The Razors Edge.....I remember printing it out and taping it to the was up there for years. It came to me last night while I was mourning the latest crap in my life. I need to remember that it is as true today as when I first read it....when you have strong opinions, you're going to piss people off (not quite as eloquent, but same message :)

Well, we know that's the truth, don't we? I know it's easy to say "let it go" and I know you know that's what you have to do, but what we have to do, is often exceedingly difficult.

was that a good book?

Yeah, it was a good book. It's been years since I read it and I probably should read it again. It's one of those books that makes you think about life and the human condition and what we find worthwhile in our lives....but it's kind of sad,
