motivation

Little by little, we change the world we live in. Even the grand, earth-shaking events of history have their origins in individual thought.

Who must do the hard things?
Those who can.
And who must do the impossible things?
Those who care.

If you say that getting the money is the most important thing, you will spend your life completely wasting your time. You’ll be doing things you don’t like doing in order to go on living, that is to go on doing things you don’t like doing… which is stupid! Better to have a short life that is full of what you like doing than a long life spent in a miserable way. And after all, if you do really like doing what you’re doing, it doesn’t matter what it is, you can eventually become a master of it. It’s the only way to become a master of something… to be really with it. And then you’ll be able to get a good fee for whatever it is.

The Invitation

It does not interest me what you do for a living. I want to know what you ache for, and if you dare to dream of meeting your heart’s longing.

It does not interest me how old you are. I want to know if you will risk looking like a fool, for your dream, for the adventure of being alive.

It doesn’t interest me what planets are squaring your moon. I want to know if you have touched the center of your own sorrow, if you have been opened by life’s betrayals, or have become shriveled and closed from fear…
