Sunday Citar - William James and Camille Pissarro

Camille Pissarro - Haying at Eragny

“The greatest weapon against stress is our ability to choose one thought over another.”

“To change ones life: Start immediately. Do it flamboyantly.”

“Most people never run far enough on their first wind to find out they've got a second.”

William James

I totally need to chose one thought over the other...speak one word over the other. Yet so often I fail and then make a huge mess. Great quote.

William James (and his novelist brother Henry) were two of my favorite authors in college. The quotes really embody their philosophies on life.
