Quotable Sunday - Hard Work Leads to Relief



I know I've used this image before in the past, but it's definitely appropriate for the headaches I've suffered this past week trying to figure out how to 'fix' my blog feeds.  I accidentally killed my blog for a few hours on Friday evening, but luckily was able to resuscitate it just before midnight.  And apparently found the right code at some point to fix the feeds - hence the reason some of you suddenly got a week's worth of posts in your reader yesterday!

This week for Quotable Sunday I decided to find some quotes about 'relief' and 'hard work' - since this week spent up to my eyeballs in code was hard work, and the relief I had when I heard from some of my readers that the links were actually working again.  Enjoy these eclectic quotes!

“In certain trying circumstances, urgent circumstances, desperate circumstances, profanity furnishes a relief denied even to prayer.”
Mark Twain

“Sorrow comes to all...Perfect relief is not possible, except with time. You cannot now realize that you will ever feel better and yet you are sure to be happy again.”
Abraham Lincoln

“A woman under stress is not immediately concerned with finding solutions to her problems but rather seeks relief by expressing herself and being understood.”
John Gray

“There is certain relief in change, even though it be from bad to worse! As I have often found in traveling in a stagecoach, that it is often a comfort to shift one's position, and be bruised in a new place”
Washington Irving

“Do not undervalue the headache. While it is at its sharpest it seems a bad investment; but when relief begins, the unexpired remainder is worth $4 a minute.”
Mark Twain

“If a job's worth doing, it's too hard.”
Scott Adams

“If hard work were really a virtue, then mules would be saints.”
James Dee Richardson

"The difference between the impossible and the possible lies in a person's determination."
Tommy Lasorda

"Every worthwhile accomplishment, big or little, has its stages of drudgery and triumph; a beginning, a struggle and a victory."
Ghandi

"A resolute determination is the truest wisdom."
Napoléon I

I am so determined never to change the layout of my blog as I think stress would lead me straight away to trying to reinact your picture...

I don't know about that headache comment. I don't value headaches no matter how I feel when they're gone.
