Quotes of the Day for 15 July 2001 – Rain

Today is Saint Swithin's Day. On this day in 971 the remains of Swithun, the late Bishop of Winchester, were translated (moved) into the new cathedral. Many miraculous cures were reported and torrents of rain fell from the clouds that day. Legend says that if it rains today it will continue to rain for 40 days. For my area, we're supposed to have clouds today, but no Rain until Monday.

The quotes:

I don't believe in pessimism. If something doesn't come up the way you want, forge ahead. If you think it's going to rain, it will.
     - Clint Eastwood

Never let your head hang down. Never give up and sit down and grieve. Find another way. And don't pray when it rains if you don't pray when the sun shines.
     - Satchel Paige

And when it rains on your parade, look up rather than down. Without the rain, there would be no rainbow.
     - Jerry Chin

As against having beautiful workshops, studios, etc., one writes best in a cellar on a rainy day.
     - Van Wyck Brooks

Every man has a rainy corner of his life whence comes foul weather which follows him.
