It is possible to fool your parents,
family, friends, teachers, business associates. 
But you must never fool yourself. 
In whatever you do, always
evaluate yourself honestly.

"For one human being to love another;
that is perhaps the most difficult of all our tasks,
the ultimate, the last test and proof, the work
for which all other work is but preparation."

Without passion man is a mere latent force
and possibility, like the flint which awaits
the shock of the iron before it can
give forth its spark.

If your daily life seems poor,
do not blame it; blame yourself
that you are not poet enough
to call forth its riches;
for the Creator, there is no poverty.

How dare you waste it!
You have the power to be the best in the world.
How dare you squander that resource by spreading it too thin.
How dare you settle for mediocre, just because you're busy copying with too many things on your agenda.
If you've got as much as you've got, use it.  Use it to become the best in the world.  You can only do that by marshaling all of your resources.  You'll need to quit everything else.  Right now. 
Use that void to find the energy to make something happen. 
~Adapted from "The Dip" by Seth Godin

Life is a great big canvas,
and you should throw all the paint you can on it.

Life is a process of becoming, 
a combination of states 
we have to go through. 

Where people fail is that 
they wish to elect a state 
and remain in it. 

This is a kind of death.

George Bernard Shaw

A life spent making mistakes
is not only more honorable,
but more useful than a
life spent doing nothing.
