Your ability to help is only limited by your creativity.

The cure for boredom is curiosity. There is no cure for curiosity. Dorothy Parker

If you don’t write your own rules, someone else will. And the results won’t be pleasant.
Every day I know that if I take care of myself, everything else will ripple from that to distant shores.
If I stay physically healthy: eat well, sleep well, exercise.
If I stay emotionally healthy: being around positive people who love me and who I love.
If I stay mentally healthy: come up with 10 ideas a day. Read a lot.
If I stay spiritually healthy: always think of the things I feel grateful for and the things that bring abundance into my life. For instance, I’m really grateful to be doing this. Thank you. James Altucher

I divide my officers into four classes; the clever, the lazy, the industrious, and the stupid. Each officer possesses at least two of these qualities. Those who are clever and industrious are fitted for the highest staff appointments. Use can be made of those who are stupid and lazy. The man who is clever and lazy however is for the very highest command; he has the temperament and nerves to deal with all situations. But whoever is stupid and industrious is a menace and must be removed immediately! General Kurt von Hammerstein-Equord

Your mind is programmable – if you’re not programming your mind, someone else will program it for you. Jeremy Hammond

Anything you are interested in, you can find others. Alan Watts

Es gibt aber kaum ein beglueckenderes Gefuehl, als zu spueren, dass fuer andere Menschen etwas sein kann. Dabei kommt es gar nicht auf die Zahl, sondern auf die Intensitaet an. Dietrich Bonhoeffer

Your ability to help is only limited by your creativity. Give me a museum and I’ll fill it. Picasso.

The problem, often not discovered until late in life, is that when you look for things in life like love, meaning, motivation, it implies they are sitting behind a tree or under a rock. The most successful people in life recognize, that in life they create their own love, they manufacture their own meaning, they generate their own motivation. For me, I am driven by two main philosophies, know more today about the world than I knew yesterday. And lessen the suffering of others. You’d be surprised how far that gets you. Neil DeGrasse Tyson

Every man possesses three characters: that which he exhibits, that which he really has, and that which he believes he has. Jean-Baptiste Alphonse Karr

The choice makes you. To laugh often and much; to win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children; to earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends; to appreciate beauty, to find the best in others; to leave the world a bit better; whether by a healthy child, a garden patch or a redeemed social condition; to know even one life has breathed easier because you lived. This is to have succeeded. Ralph Waldo Emerson

Live a good life. If there are gods and they are just, then they will not care how devout you have been, but will welcome you based on the virtues you have lived by. If there are gods, but unjust, then you should not want to worship them. If there are no gods, then you will be gone, but will have lived a noble life that will live on in the memories of your loved ones. When you grow up you, tend to get told that the world is the way it is and your life is just to live your life inside the world, try not to bash into the walls too much, try to have a nice family, have fun, save a little money. That’s a very limited life. Life can be much broader, once you discover one simple fact, and that is that everything around you that you call life was made up by people that were no smarter than you. And you can change it, you can influence it, you can build your own things that other people can use. Once you learn that, you’ll never be the same again. Steve Jobs

Strange as it may sound to many people, who tend to think of critics as being motivated by the lower emotions: envy, disdain, contempt even… Critics are, above all, people who are in love with beautiful things, and who worry that those things will get broken. Daniel Mendelsohn

The most terrifying fact about the universe is not that it is hostile, but that it is indifferent – but if we can come to terms with this indifference, then our existence as a species can have genuine meaning. However vast the darkness, we must supply our own light. Stanley Kubrick

Take time; or else write fewer letters and shorter ones. J. Willis Westlake
