A Quote by Marcus Aurelius Antoninus on bitterness, choice, focus, path, point of view, questions, and reality

A cucumber is bitter. - Throw it away. -
There briars in the road? - Turn aside from them.
This is enough.  Do not add, And why were such things made in the world?

The pain stings like an open wound. Rub in salt and only bitterness blooms. Get at the root of the feeling and a wisdom is born that starts the healing.

A Quote by Lee Ann Womack on bitterness, growth, meditation, and dancing

Don't let some hell bent heart leave you bitter.  When you come close to sellin' out reconsider.  Give the heavens above more than just a passing glance.  And when you get the choice to sit it out or dance,  I hope you dance.

A Quote by Marianne Williamson on bitterness, losing, and love

Whatever we focus on is bound to expand. Where we see the negative, we call forth more negative. And where we see the positive, we call forth more positive. Having loved and lost, I now love more passionately. Having won and lost, I now win more soberly. Having tasted the bitter, I now savor the sweet.

A Quote by Zane Grey on anger, bitterness, death, defeat, dreams, evil, faith, glory, good, greatness, grief, love, men, tears, and weakness

Recipe for greatness - To bear up under loss, to fight the bitterness of defeat and the weakness of grief, to be victor over anger, to smile when tears are close, to resist evil men and base instincts, to hate hate and to love love, to go on when it would seem good to die, to seek ever after the glory and the dream, to look up with unquenchable faith in something evermore about to be, that is what any man can do, and so be great.

Zane Grey (1875 - 1939)

Sweet Mercy! to the gates of heaven This minstrel lead, his sins forgiven; The rueful conflict, the heart riven With vain endeavour, And memory of Earth's bitter leaven Effaced forever.
