“The most improper job of any man… is bossing other men. Not one in a million is fit for it, and least of all those who seek the opportunity.”
“You only struggle because you are ready to grow but aren’t willing to let go.” – Drew Gerald
A hundred thousand suns burning bright inside of me.
“Tout le monde veut prendre un train déjà en marche… ”
Very wise JH
Honest – towards ourselves and whoever else is a friend to us.
Courageous – towards the enemy.
Generous – towards the defeated.
Polite – always, this is what the four cardinal virtues want us to be.
“I want to learn more and more to see as beautiful what is necessary in things; then I shall be one of those who make things beautiful.”
“Whoever is dissatisfied with himself is continually ready for revenge, and we others will be his victims, if only by having to endure his ugly sight. For the sight of what is ugly makes one bad and gloomy.”
“Here and there on earth we may encounter a kind of continuation of love in which… possessive craving of two people for each other gives way to… a shared higher thirst for an ideal above them… Its right name is friendship.”
“My formula for greatness in a human being is amor fati… Not merely to bear what is necessary, still less conceal it… but love it.”
“I love him whose soul squander itself, who wants no thanks and returns none, for he always gives away and does not want to preserve himself.”
“I will not deceive, even myself.”
“To create things on which time tests its teeth in vain; in form, in substance, to strive for a little immortality – I have never yet been modest enough to demand less of myself.”
If somebody says something about you and it hurts you, then it means that you’re holding a similar judgment against yourself.
What would you say is the the biggest obstacle to your success right now? A lack of time? Maybe a lack of capital? Or maybe a lack of good employees?
Nope. All wrong.
The biggest obstacle to success is a lack of optimism.
Why d’you do it?
Cos I wanted to see who I might become.
