Do not let your fire go out, spark by irreplaceable spark in the hopeless swamps of the not-quite, the not-yet, and the not-at-all. Do not let the hero in your soul perish in lonely frustration for the life you deserved and have never been able to reach. The world you desire can be won. It exists.. it is real.. it is possible.. it’s yours.
Creating a life that reflects your values and satisfies your soul is a rare achievement. In a culture that relentlessly promotes avarice and excess as the good life, a person happy doing his own work is usually considered an eccentric, if not a subversive… To invent your own life’s meaning is not easy, but it’s still allowed, and I think you’ll be happier for the trouble.
What is it that is most beautiful? – The Universe; for it is the work of God. What is most powerful? – Necessity; because it triumphs over all things. What is most difficult? – To know one’s self. What is most easy? – To give advice. What method must we take to lead a good life? – To do nothing we would condemn in others. What is necessary to happiness? – A sound body and a contented mind.

Responsibility. Conviction.
