Thought of the Moment

Perseverance

The drops of rain make a hole in the stone not by violence but by oft falling.

- Titus Lucretius Carus

 

Dearness Gives Value

That which we obtain too easily, we esteem too lightly.

It is dearness only which gives everything its value.

Heaven knows how to put a proper price on its goods.

- Thomas Paine

 

Last Five People

The prerequisite for spending time with any person is that they nourish and inspire you, that they feed your flames. Look at your last 5 text messages - are those people feeding your flames or dousing your fire? The people that you spend time with are going to make or break your dreams. Not everyone deserves to be around you. You have to defend your light with your life. Who are the people in your life who are fanning your flames?

- Will Smith

 

To be real, not to be perfect

We are here to be real, not to be perfect.

 

Whole and Real

Growing children have better access to being whole and real than we do. May we embrace them for who they are and recognize them as our greatest spiritual teachers.

 

The best opportunities are earned through steady effort

Can you sense when people are networking with you only because they think you can help them? Others can, too. Rather than spend energy networking, we are better off putting our efforts into improving. The best opportunities are earned through steady effort.

 

Grief and Happiness

There is neither happiness nor misery in the world; there is only the comparison of one state with another, nothing more. He who has felt the deepest grief is best able to experience supreme happiness.

- Alexandre Dumas

 

Try Doing Something Good

You can spend all day undermining other people, and even if you're right, who cares? Anybody can talk about why something is bad. Try doing something good.

- Joseph Gordon-Levitt

 

Beauty

That which is striking and beautiful is not always good, but that which is good is always beautiful.

- Ninon de L'Enclos

 

Friendship

I would rather walk with a friend in the dark, than alone in the light.

- Helen Keller
