Words of wisdom for Tuesday

Word Nymph is unplugged this week.  She leaves you with this quote: 

“Things turn out best for the people who make the best out of the way things turn out.”

     — Art Linkletter  

This quote is also attributed to John Wooden.  I don’t care who said it;  I just like it.  By the way, did you know this sentence is known as a chiasmus?  I didn’t.  I recently learned that a chiasmus is a verbal pattern in which the second half of an expression is balanced against the first with the parts reversed.  — W.N.
