Fundamentals | Path

Do not go where the path may lead, go instead where there is no path and leave a trail.
Always do what you are afraid to do.

Emerson, R. W. (1979) The Complete Works of Ralph Waldo Emerson

excerpt | Duckie

When you think things are bad,
when you feel sour and blue,
when you start to get mad...
you should do what I do!
Just tell yourself, Duckie, 
you're really quite lucky!
Some people are much more...
oh, ever so much more...
oh, muchly much-much more
unlucky than you!

Dr. Seuss (1972) Did I Ever Tell You How Lucky You Are

excerpt | Hope

I have always believed that hope is that stubborn thing inside us that insists, despite all the evidence to the contrary, that something better awaits us so long as we have the courage to keep reaching, to keep working, to keep fighting.

Obama, B. (2012, November 7) Victory Speech

excerpt | Secret of Life

It is not the length of life, but the depth of life.
He who is not everyday conquering some fear has not learned the secret of life.
