A Formula For Failure?

I can’t give you a sure-fire formula for success,
but I can give you a formula for failure:
try to please everybody all the time.

  1. Hydrangeas are one of my husbands success stories Eddie.. He loves to propagate them and we treated ourselves to a new one Hydrangea macrophylla ‘Star Gazer’ 🙂
    LOVED yours Eddie.. 🙂

  2. Thank you for sharing that very powerful thought. I was raised Catholic, and “pleasing God” seemed inseparable from pleasing everyone else at the expense of your own happiness. It’s taken me way too long to realize that you have to love yourself before you can truly love others

  3. (EN)In front of a Pulitzer Prize(Herbert Bayard Swope) I must agree with you.
    (IT) Di fronte a un Premio Pulitzer(Herbert Bayard Swope) devo concordare con voi.

your kind word is always welcome
