Quote #377, My Thoughts and YOUR thoughts

Here goes Blog quote #377...

"I can resist everything, but temptation."
-Oscar Wilde-

As always, got to love the double meaning or the oxymoronic quotes. That temptation can be a tough thing to not succumb to.

Factors usually include will power, drive, motive, and guts. Look at all the people trying to lose weight. How about the numbers who are "quitting smoking." Next how many New Year's resolutions fall by the wayside to temptation?

Heck, per the bible, we wouldn't even be here if Adam and Eve didn't give in to temptation. Nobody said it was easy. Especially Oscar Wilde.

Personally, I believe the mind is THEE most powerful thing in the universe and if you want something bad enough, you stay focused and resist all the detractors. More easily said than done. Most things that are worthwhile don't come easy though, do they?

That's my view...what say you?
