Friday Quote by Claire Rayner

>Wisdom for our times

The quote this week comes from Claire Rayner, taken from Wisdom for Our Times
‘This too will pass.
I was taught these words by my grandmother as a phrase that is to be used at all times in your life. When things are spectacularly dreadful; when things are absolutely appalling; when everything is superb and wonderful and marvellous and happy – Say these four words to yourself. They will give you a sense of perspective and help you also to make the most of what is good and be stoical about what is bad.’
