People who are happier are more productive, more creative, more altruistic, more likely have better relationships at work and home, are healthier and have fewer heart attacks, strokes, colds and flus. Happiness turns out to be an input into a great life, not a bonus you get at the end of one. — Nataly Kogan
Tell your heart that the fear of suffering is worse than the suffering itself. And that no heart has ever suffered when it goes in search of its dreams, because every second of the search is a second’s encounter with God and with eternity.
— The Alchemist
Reading and experience train your model of the world. And even if you forget the experience or what you read, its effect on your model of the world persists. Your mind is like a compiled program you’ve lost the source of. It works, but you don’t know why.
— Paul Graham, in his essay, How You Know
Opportunity is missed by most people because it is dressed in overalls and looks like work.
~ Thomas Edison
