Give yourself five minutes to consider how you can turn a miserable situation to your benefit and that light bulb is going to click on.

The memory of benefits is a frail defence against ingratitude
A benefit cited by way of reproach is equivalent to an injury
In refusing benefits caution must be used lest we seem to despise or to refuse them for fear of having to repay them in kind
Most human beings have an absolute and infinite capacity for taking things for granted
When you confer a benefit on those worthy of it, you confer a favor on all
He who confers a benefit on anyone loves him better than he is beloved
He gives a benefit twice who gives quickly


On Anger: "For every minute you remain angry, you give up sixty seconds of peace of mind."
On Destiny: "Our destiny exercises its influence over us even when, as yet, we have not learned its nature: it is our future that lays down the law of our today."
Human, All Too Human
On Friendship: "A crowd is not company; and faces are but a gallery of pictures; and talk but a tinkling cymbal, where there is no love."
