Quotes from the Masters: Ovid

Each week Robin from Bringing Europe Home provides a quote and then you can interpret the quote via pictures, stories, poems, and more. This week’s quote is:

“Happy is the man who has broken the chains which hurt the mind, and has given up worrying once and for all.”  Ovid

I captured this image while enjoying a cruise of the fjords near Oslo in the rain. This man didn’t seem to care at all about the weather. He was out to enjoy.

    Yes, if we can get to the stage where all the clichés come into play, you know – grab the day, just do it, today is the first day of the rest of your life, go girl, etc., – I think the world can be a happy (er) place. 🙂

    I love the quote and photo.
    Are you a person like that quote, TBM? 😉

    • TBM says:

      I try to live without worrying, but it isn’t always possible. I do believe in going after your dreams, even if you don’t succeed. Success isn’t the victory for me, the journey is and all the stuff that happens along the way, including the bad.

      • Novroz says:

        You make a great quote TBM!
        I also think the same but couldn’t say it as good as you. the journey is the most important of all….the journey makes great memory.

      • TBM says:

        Thanks Novroz…your’re right. The journey is key to life.
