Wisdom of the Ages 392

Bettsi McComb of Tender arts contribution to the Wisdom of the Ages project, it reads:

My favorite bit of wisdom comes from another woman (of course), but one who I know nothing about. Here it is:
The gloom of this world is but a shadow; behind it, yet within our reach, is joy. Take joy.
-Fra Giovanni 1513

This simple little quote reminds me that my attitude is always a choice. I think I especially like it because of how long ago it was first said. Life was infinitely harder 500 years ago and yet this woman had such a beautiful outlook. Inspiring wisdom, indeed!
