I early learned that there were two natures in me. This caused me a great deal of trouble, till I worked out a philosophy of life and struck a compromise between the flesh and the spirit. Too great an ascendancy of either was to be abnormal, and since normality is almost a fetish of mine, I finally succeeded in balancing both natures. Ordinarily they are at equilibrium; yet as frequently as one is permitted to run rampant, so is the other. I have small regard for an utter brute or for an utter saint.
If no one thinks you can,
then you have to.
Run through meadows.
Swim the sea.
Breath wild air.
Gaze at the stars.
Enjoy the natural world.
Always focus on how far you’ve come,
rather than how far you have to go.
If you don’t stick to your values when they’re being tested, they’re not values: They’re hobbies.
I can accept failure, but I cannot accept not trying.
A champion is someone who gets up when he can’t.
The greatest danger to our future is apathy.
We’re born alone. We do need each other. It’s lonely to really effectively live your life, and anyone you can get help from or give help to; that’s part of your obligation.
