Useful Aphorisms

God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change,
courage to change the things I can,
and the wisdom to know the difference.

– Reinhold Niebuhr, 1934

For every ailment under the sun
There is a remedy, or there is none;
If there be one, try to find it;
If there be none, never mind it.

– Mother Goose Rhyme, 1695
