Words of Wisdom from Peter Marshall

"Sometimes we receive biting letters that cut to the quick. We should promptly search ourselves in the light of these letters and see how we may profit by them. Then we should just as promptly burn the letters and forget them."

"But," you may ask, "how can we forget the unkind things that are said ... the cruel and unfair treatment one has received?  How can we simply forget these things? It is not as simple as that!"

"There is just one sure way.  Never talk about them, and never think about them.  If you want to forget something, never speak even to your dearest friends about it. When it bobs into your mind, banish it at once.  It will surprise you how quickly you can forget anything by that treatment."
