Let us act on what we have, since we have not what we wish.
Cardinal J. Newman
My only wish is that my wishes be at rest.
Stop the mindless wishing that things would be different. Rather than wasting time and emotional and spiritual energy in explaining why we don't have what we want, we can start to pursue other ways to get it.
Oh, the secret life of man and woman --dreaming how much better we would be than we are if we were somebody else or even ourselves, and feeling that our estate has been unexploited to its fullest.
Men try to run life according to their wishes; life runs itself according to necessity.
Between the wish and the thing life lies waiting.
To do nothing evil is good; to wish nothing evil is better.
If wishes were fishes we'd all be throwing nets. If wishes were horses we'd all ride.
Beware what you set your heart upon. For it shall surely be yours.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
DATO'S LAW. Wishes expand in direct proportion to the resources available for their gratification.
A man of the world must seem to be what he wishes to be thought.
Jean de la Bruyere
A man, when he wishes, is the master of his fate.
Some people develop a wishbone where their backbone should be.
If wishes were horses then beggars would ride.
We would often be sorry if our wishes were granted.
A prayer in its simplest definition is merely a wish turned Godward.
We are never further from what we wish than when we believe that we have what we wished for.
Johann von Goethe
Wishing of all strategies, is the worst.
We must not wish anything other than what happens from moment to moment, all the while, however, exercising ourselves in goodness.
St. Catherine of Genoa
The wishing gate opens into nothing.
C. H. (Charles Haddon) Spurgeon
