Sever the ignorant doubt in your heart with the sword of self-knowledge. Observe your discipline. Arise.
It is an article of faith in my creed to pick the man who does not take himself seriously, but does take his work seriously.
-- Michael C. Cahill
The trouble with so many of us is that we underestimate the power of simplicity. We have a tendency it seems to over complicate our lives and forget what's important and what's not. We tend to mistake movement for achievement. We tend to focus on activities instead of results. And as the pace of life continues to race along in the outside world, we forget that we have the power to control our lives regardless of what's going on outside.
-- Robert Stuberg
Often people attempt to live their lives backwards: they try to have more things, or more money, in order to do more of what they want to they will be happier. The way it actually works is the reverse. You must first be who you really are, then do what you need to do, in order to have what you want.
