Never cry over anything that can’t cry over you

When Sophia Loren, broken hearted, sobbed to movie director Vittorio De Sica over the theft of her jewelry, he gave her this advice: “Listen to me, Sophia. I am much older than you and if there is one great truth I have learned about life, it is this – never cry over anything that can’t cry over you.”
Psychiatrist Victor Frankl learned the same in a Nazi concentration camp. “Everything can be taken from you,” he said, “Except for one thing: to choose your attitude in any given set of circumstances, to choose your way.”
It’s another reminder of that timeless wisdom from the Bible that says “Don’t be conformed to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind.” That’s what faith does, it gives us a new and deeper perspective on life. It helps us to see where our true riches are and gives us the courage to live according to that truth.
