Wish for What You Are

It's not good for all of our wishes to be fulfilled. Through sickness, we recognize the value of health; through evil, the value of good; through hunger, the value of food; through exertion, the value of rest. - Greek proverb

If there's a single lesson that life teaches us, it's that wishing doesn't make it so.  ~ Lev Grossman

Work will win when wishy washy wishing won't.  ~ Thomas S. Monson

Do not wish to be anything but what you are, and try to be that perfectly. ~ St. Francis De Sales
