ALL OF HUMANITY’S PROBLEMS stem from man’s inability to sit quietly in a room alone. We fear the silence of existence, we dread boredom and instead choose aimless distraction, and we can’t help but run from the problems of our emotions into the false comforts of the mind.
~~ Blaise Pascal
EVERYONE FAILS AT WHO THEY are supposed to be. The measure of a person, of a hero, is how well they succeed at being who they are.
~~ Frigga (MCU)
WE ARE WHAT OUR CHOICES make us. Will you resolve to be better this year? Or stay the same? What you choose is who you are. The only way to freedom and wisdom is by continual effort. Because life is short. The time is now. And gains are cumulative. The sooner you start, the sooner you’ll see results. ~~ The Daily Stoic
NO MAN CAN SWIM ASHORE AND TAKE HIS BAGGAGE WITH HIM. ~~ Sêneca
TO LIVE A GOOD LIFE, REMIND yourself what you want. We’re forgetful beings. You can do all the right things for months and all of a sudden, you wake up, and think, “What should I do with my life!” You must remind yourself often of what a good life looks like to you.
~~ Darius Foroux
SHAKE THINGS UP EVERY DAY
~~ James Altucher
ALL OF US ARE PULLED ALONG by Fate, as well as by Fortune. Sometimes they line up with what we want, sometimes they don’t. We have to embrace it. We have to accept the little facts of life. Bland indifference is a start, but cheerful whistling is even better.
~~ Daily Stoic
