f is one of those words that too many people spend their time wallowing in. If only I had done or not done this thing or another; If only I were dealt a better hand in life, etc.. What a waste of time and energy! So rather than wallow in those thing that could have or even should have been, I find it better to look at the word ‘if’ as something situational. Each situation is different, and in every case one must be prepared.
If you hesitate, a lion will come and think of you as prey. There are only two kinds of people in the world, the eaters and the eaten. If you don’t want to be eaten, then be decisive.
If you live with but half a heart, then start digging your grave.
If you mock the power of love it will torment you mercilessly.
If you do not live according to your dreams then you are condemned to live out those of others.
If you arrange that you speak, do so that it is like a musical composition. Others tend to appreciate such things and tend to be swept away by its passion.
If heaven did not care, we would all be alike.
If you find a void fill it. Nature abhors a vacuum.
If you make yourself low in the eyes of others, you will be walked upon.
If your own emotions are not under your control, then they are under the control of others. Don’t allow anyone that power which should be yours alone.
And perhaps most importantly,
If I had done what everyone advised me to do, I would have been dead long ago.
