Thought of the Moment

So It Flies

If you examine a butterfly according to the laws of aerodynamics, it shouldn't be able to fly. But the butterfly doesn't know that, so it flies.

- Howard Schultz


Good Relationships Feel Good

Do not bring people in your life who weigh you down. And trust your instincts ... good relationships feel good. They feel right. They don't hurt. They're not painful. That's not just with somebody you want to marry, but it's with the friends that you choose. It's with the people you surround yourselves with.

- Michelle Obama



Feeling fulfilled is a natural byproduct of days spent looking to be of service to others. When we create value for others and help people help themselves in solving their problems, we greatly increase the likelihood of having our needs met and making the world a better place.


The Little Things in Life

Enjoy the little things in life for one day you will look back and realize they were the big things.

- Kurt Vonnegut


Most important human needs

Human beings need three basic things in order to be content: they need to feel competent at what they do; they need to feel authentic in their lives; and they need to feel connected to others. These values are considered "intrinsic" to human happiness and far outweigh "extrinsic" values such as beauty, money and status.

- Sebastian Junger


The Primal Need to Feel Necessary

For many people, war feels better than peace and hardship can turn out to be a great blessing and disasters are sometimes remembered more fondly than weddings or tropical vacations. Humans don’t mind duress, in fact they thrive on it. What they mind is not feeling necessary.

- Sebastian Junger



If you are not willing to be a fool, you can't become a master.

- Jordan B. Peterson


Being Grateful


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



Friendship is always a sweet responsibility, never an opportunity (to take advantage).

- Kahlil Gibran
