The Art of Achievement.
You hold in your hand the camel’s hair brush of a painter of Life. You stand before the vast white canvas of Time. The paints are your thoughts, emotions and acts.
You select the colors of your thoughts; drab or bright, weak or strong, good or bad.
You select the colors of your emotions, discordant or harmonious, harsh or quiet, weak or strong.
You select the colors of your acts; cold or warm. fearful or daring, small or big.
~ Wilferd A. Peterson, The Art of Living (1961)
