„One of life's best coping mechanisms is to know the difference between an inconvenience and a problem.“

—  Robert Fulghum, Context: One of life's best coping mechanisms is to know the difference between an inconvenience and a problem. If you break your neck, if you have nothing to eat, if your house is on fire, then you've got a problem. Everything else is an inconvenience. Life is inconvenient. Life is lumpy. A lump in the oatmeal, a lump in the throat and a lump in the breast are not the same kind of lump. One needs to learn the difference. Uh-Oh: Some Observations from Both Sides of the Refrigerator Door (2001), p. 146
