A great adage for those of us who feel sorry for ourselves at times

Reportedly uttered by a little old Southern lady who had had her share of troubles:
"If the mountain was smooth, you couldn't climb it."

One of the ministers on the UUMA chat line gave us a link to a YouTube clip (which I notice James over at Monkey Mind has conveniently embedded on his blog) entitled Amazing Grace/history. I didn't watch the whole thing, but was absolutely stunned by the wisdom in these few words.

What a great quote. I may have to put that up in my cubicle. I often say to myself when my job is tough that if it was easy, everyone would be an architect. But this quote applies across the board.
