    HLM, great quote. Thank you.

    Along the same lines, I've often read that to be healthy and happy it is necessary to stop "judging, comparing and having an attachment to the outcome."

    This morning I read, "peace begins when expectation ends."

    All wonderful words to remember............and for me, to practice........

    Ooooh...that having an attachment to the outcome is a tough one. Good though. Very good.

    I have always liked this one too; "Expectation minus reality equals dissapointment"
