We weave our excuses around events thin

We weave our excuses around events.
Thin, poor quality cloth of justification
Poor substitutes for the heavy tribal blankets
Once we wove to wrap our children.

Maybe you dont like your job maybe

Maybe you don’t like your job, maybe you didn’t get enough sleep, well nobody likes their job, nobody got enough sleep.  Maybe you just had the worst day of your life, but you know, there’s no escape, there’s no excuse, so just suck up and be nice.  ~Ani Difranco

It is wise to direct your anger

It is wise to direct your anger towards problems – not people, to focus your energies on answers – not excuses.  ~William Arthur Ward
