The life you have got

You can make complaints about what people, including you, make of their lives after they have got them, and about what people make of other people’s lives, but you mustn’t wish for another life.

The chance you have is the life you’ve got.

You mustn’t want to be somebody else.

What you must do is this: Rejoice evermore. Pray without ceasing. In everything give thanks.
I am not all the way capable of so much, but those are the right instructions.

Wendell Berry
