"In the instance of getting an idea, I go act it out on paper — I don’t put it away. I don’t delay, I don’t put off to tomorrow doing what I must do, right now, to find out what my secret self needs, wants, desires with all its heart. And then it speaks, and I have enough brains to get out of the way and listen."
"To be successful in life, I will need to be able to handle not being in control sometimes. No one is always in control of everything. What a great opportunity to improve!"
"A teahouse amid
the cherry blossoms,
on the way to death."
"What you may not have realized is that today truly is a wide open frontier. It is the best time EVER in human history to begin."
"How happy is the blameless vestal’s lot!
The world forgetting, by the world forgot.
Eternal sunshine of the spotless mind!
Each pray’r accepted, and each wish resign’d"
— Alexander Pope
