.A customer asked how my running was going. Me: Can not run because I have osteoarthritis in the knee. Customer: That's good. I am taken aback for a quick second. The customer is in a wheel chair. He is paralyzed from the waist down. What is a little osteoarthritis?
Run until the trail runs out.
"I never lamented about the vicissitudes of time or complained of the turns of fortune except on the occasion when I was barefooted and unable to procure slippers. But when I entered the great mosque of Kufah with a sore heart and beheld a man without feet I offered thanks to the bounty of God, consoled myself for my want of shoes and recited:
'A roast fowl is to the sight of a satiated man
Less valuable than a blade of fresh grass on the table
And to him who has no means nor power
A burnt turnip is a roasted fowl.'"
The Gulistan. by Sa'di
I like turnips.
