^ But who wants to spend their life making sacrifices?

The flip side of that quote is surely even better news for us? Which is...

If you don't want anything in life, there's no need to sacrifice anything.

"I have seen that it is not man who is impotent in the struggle against evil, but the power of evil that is impotent in the struggle against man. The powerlessness of kindness, of senseless kindness, is the secret of its immortality. It can never by conquered. The more stupid, the more senseless, the more helpless it may seem, the vaster it is. Evil is impotent before it. The prophets, religious teachers, reformers, social and political leaders are impotent before it. This dumb, blind love is man’s meaning.

Human history is not the battle of good struggling to overcome evil. It is a battle fought by a great evil, struggling to crush a small kernel of human kindness. But if what is human in human beings has not been destroyed even now, then evil will never conquer."


- Vasily Grossman, Life and Fate

Not a quote but show that communication skills can be learnt, I guess. People say that the guy lacks enthusiasm in this video compared to his new ones, but I just see him as being more confident in making videos nowadays.

Noticed that I automatically got anxious walking past a woman and her kids yesterday, I didn't mean to, I just did. If the nature of anxiety is that sudden and unavoidable then obviously to deal with anxiety I can't avoid it I have to deal with it in the face.

Easy money has become the way to go

Came across this in a linkedin post and I say it's true. Although admittedly I would like easy money, who wouldn't, with social media and all making more money doesn't necessarily equal more skill in x field.

TENSION IS who you think you should be. Relaxation is who you are. - Chinese Proverb

A bird doesn't sing because it has an answer, it sings because it has a song.
Lou Holtz

"“They who have no central purpose in their life fall an easy prey to petty worries, fears, troubles, and self-pitying, all of which are indications of weakness, which lead, just as surely as deliberately planned sins (though by a different route), to failure, unhappiness, and loss, for weakness cannot persist in a power evolving universe.”

― James Allen, As a Man Thinketh"


“"You Can't Cross The Sea Merely By Standing And Staring At The Water."”

Nothing you do will change you,
For you need no change.
Don’t try to reform yourself;
Just see the futility of all change.
Do not expect the changeful
To take you to the changeless —
It can never happen.
Only when the very idea of changing
Is seen as false and abandoned,
The changeless can come into its own.
