Quote from Henry David Thoreau:
How can we remember our ignorance, which our growth requires, when we are using our knowledge all the time?
I get up every morning determined to both change the world and to have one hell of a good time. Sometimes, this makes planning the day difficult.
All blame is a waste of time. No matter how much fault you find with another, and regardless of how much you blame him, it will not change you.
Nobody sees a flower--really--it is so small it takes time--we haven't time--and to see takes time, like to have a friend takes time.
The ascent of Everest was not the work of one day, nor even of those few unforgettable weeks in which we climbed… It is, in fact, a tale of sustained and tenacious endeavor by many, over a long period of time.
Every time you encounter something that forces you to “handle it,” your self-esteem is raised considerably. You learn to trust that you will survive, no matter what happens. And in this way your fears are diminished immeasurably.
Faith—not a faith in one’s self or in one’s own powers but faith in principle; in the Something Great which upholds right, and which may be relied upon to give us the victory in due time. Without this faith it is not possible for any one to rise to real greatness.
The purpose for the passage of time is to allow a person to become better, wiser, to express more and more of one’s beingness.
From this moment on, every time you feel afraid, remind yourself that it is simply because you are not feeling good enough about yourself.
Only the idea of death makes a warrior sufficiently detached so that he is capable of abandoning himself to anything. He knows his death is stalking him and won't give him time to cling to anything so he tries, without craving, all of everything.
Our greatest glory is not in never failing, but in rising up every time we fail.
Hurry is a manifestation of fear; he who fears not has plenty of time. If you at with perfect faith in your own perceptions of truth, you will never be too late or too early; and nothing will go wrong.
