Quotes of the Day for 23 October 2000 – Frustration

I attempted a modest system upgrade this weekend, which took all weekend and meant that nothing at all was accomplished. Now I'm two days further behind and I'm pretty sure that I didn't learn anything. For the HTML-mode subscribers that received the text version yesterday, that was just part of my frustrated thrashing about. Today's theme? It has to be frustration.

The quotes:

Consult not your fears but your hopes and your dreams.Think not about your frustrations, but about your unfulfilled potential. Concern yourself not with what you tried and failed in,but with what it is still possible for you to do.
     - Pope John XXIII

I've come to believe that all my past failure and frustration were actually laying the foundation for the understandings that have created the new level of living I now enjoy.
     - Anthony Robbins

Laughter and tears are both responses to frustration and exhaustion. I myself prefer to laugh, since there is less cleaning up to do afterward.
     - Kurt Vonnegut, Jr

To live for results would be to sentence myself to continuous frustration. My only sure reward is in my actions and not from them.
     - Hugh Prather
