'The best laid schemes
o' mice an' men
Gang aft agley...'
To A Mouse by Robert Burns (1785)
Translation: 'The best-laid plans of mice and men often go awry.'
Timely and timeless words by the 18th century lyrical master Robert Burns. Since I learned them almost 20 years ago 😱, I often find myself muttering them. They serve as a comforting reminder not to panic when things don't go as planned and to remember that the path now in front of you has its own opportunities. Much needed reassurance for the year we're having! #powerofthewrittenword
