Something for a Friday, I think. I found in a book recently:
Ut amēris, amēbilis estō!
In order to be loved, be lovable!
—Ovid, Ars Amãtõria, II, 107
Seems like good advice to me, in any language. 😉
People like to blame external reasons for their problems but oftentimes we have responsibility too. We can’t change life around us, but we can control how we interact with it.
