I always say that “if we eat together, we can work together.
Men of lofty genius when they are doing the least work are most active.
Are you bored with life? Then throw yourself into some work you
believe in with all your heart, live for it, die for it, and you will
find happiness that you had thought could never be yours.
True empathy is not about waiting to understand another person; it is about proactively seeking to do so. It takes effort to give another person your full time and attention; to ask others how they are feeling and if they coping well with things. And don’t overlook those closest to you. Never take anyone for granted. Avoid being too preoccupied to sit down and talk with your children, partners and colleagues.
If you have a painting in you, paint. If you have a song to sing, sing. Don’t judge your creation. Just create it. Banish doubt and fear and step out of your own way if you have to. Write if you’re a writer and invent if you’re an inventor. Do what you were born to do. Only then will you know a remarkable life.
I have learned that as soon as you introduce controls on human behavior, you lose the game, particularly when those controls are at odds with the work.
May God grant you more grace, strength and wisdom.
God can bless you wherever you are.
There is no greater peace than work and no greater happiness than progress.
The great problems we see in the world today will not be solved by people functioning at half capacity cranking out work they don’t care about in order to buy more things that will eventually rust and rot.
