Do Something Useful – And Don’t Complain

I am so SLOW! I mean YEARS. Reading a book yesterday (about happiness, thanks David, I will eventually bring it back) and it finally sunk in to my mind that “Waiting for Godot” – is – waiting for God.

And today I found Shantideva’s answer:

“If there’s a remedy when trouble strikes,
What reason is there for dejection?
And if there is no help for it,
What use is there in being glum?”

Which I think is more or less also what the Godot characters eventually concluded.
