Adjustment Quotations

Every new adjustment is a crisis in self-esteem.
Eric Hoffer

Norman Vincent Peale

On rare occasions one does hear of a miraculous case of a married couple falling in love after marriage, but on close examination it will be found that it is a mere adjustment to the inevitable.
Emma Goldman

Happiness comes from... some curious adjustment to life.
Hugh Walpole

Ludwig Wittgenstein
