The quest for excellence is a sign of maturity. The quest for power is childish.


I'm not sure if that's true, but I like the idea.

When you have a great and difficult task, something perhaps almost impossible, if you only work a little at a time, every day a little, suddenly the work will finish itself. ~ Isak Dinesan

Wow, Tituba. I really needed that today. This applies directly to an old friendship that I've had to let go of recently.

Definitely a great one to remember! Along that vein...
Not forgiving is like drinking rat poison and then waiting for the rat to die.

And also, the Pocket Full of Rocks story fits in here. The link goes to the website of the Church of Latter Day Saints , BTW.

Reality—the fact that life is tragic. Life is tragic simply because the earth turns and the sun inexorably rises and sets, and one day, for each of us, the sun will go down for the last, last time. Perhaps the whole root of our trouble, the human trouble, is that we will sacrifice all the beauty of our lives, will imprison ourselves in totems, taboos, crosses, blood sacrifices, steeples, mosques, races, armies, flags, nations, in order to deny the fact of death, which is the only fact we have. It seems to me that one ought to rejoice in the fact of death—ought to decide, indeed, to earn one’s death by confronting with passion the conundrum of life.


— James Baldwin, The Fire Next Time

"To me, clowns aren't funny. In fact, they're kinda scary. I've wondered where this started, and I think it goes back to the time I went to the circus and a clown killed my dad." -- Jack Handey
