This too shall pass!

...how very true. I don't know exactly when I read this line. But ever since then it has always been back on my minds. Whether one thinks of it at times of happiness or not, at times of distress, this line surely comes to mind.

I remember this being associated to some Chinese fable, some Indian story too. But the latest it being related to seems to be with King Solomon. Whatever, it holds true so much!

I get solace reading these lines at this time, when things are really so hectic at home. With kids being so naughty and pressing for so much attention, I remember Konda growing up and remember this line. I take solace knowing This too shall pass!

Yes, this too will pass...but we shall cherish if moments were good and learn from tougher ones.

"This too will pass" - I believe it and follow it through out my life.

it does come to my mind at all stages, before i start a project, before i start on a journey, during some jerkups, during a happy hour..as if everything was destined to happen and will eventually be gone..im here to Experience it..and that makes me move forward with further zest!!
