Inner peace

My old friend Peter Marsh, is, in his own mind, a knower of all things.   Here is yet more evidence of his ability to stumble across neat bits of human and not-so-human wisdom:

If you can start the day without caffeine,
If you can always be cheerful, ignoring aches and pains,

If you can resist complaining and boring people with your troubles,

If you can eat the same food every day and be grateful for it,

If you can understand when your loved ones are too busy to give you any time,
if you can take criticism and blame without resentment,

If you can conquer tension without medical help,
If you can relax without alcohol,

If you can sleep without the aids of drugs,
Then you are probably the family dog!
