  1. 😂😂 This is such an amazing quote! How often are we blaming everything and everyone instead of taking care of what the problem itself? I love that quote! Happy Thursday to you, Sylvester!

  2. Very thoughtprovoking. Lovely.

  3. I do love this quote Brother! It’s too easy to flap around worrying about other things rather than the matter at hand!

  4. Haha, so true!
