Post to the Host:
I have quite a few of your tapes and books, so someone asked me what was your famous "Christmas saying" (quote)... it eludes me.
Would you share it with me?
It eludes me, too, Lynette. "There's no place like home when you're not feeling well"? Or how about this
"Craving only causes frustration, intense desire makes the object recede. If the game is really important, you're going to lose. If you're wildly in love, you're going to lose and you know it. The trick is to keep it from being that important. Be cool. Don't want it that much. Want it less. When you get to where you don't want it at all, then you're more likely to get it. And if you don't get it, you don't care so much."
Ouch. That one hurts, it's so true. The Zen of the Midwest.
