We Are Always Falling In Love Or Quarreling, Looking For Jobs Or Fearing To Lose Them, Getting Ill Or Recovering, Following Public Affairs

If we let ourselves, we shall always be waiting for some distraction or other to end before we can really get down to our work.

The only people who achieve much are those who want knowledge so badly that they seek it while the conditions are still unfavorable.

Favorable conditions never come.

What It Means To Be Authentic

– to be more concerned with truth than opinions
– to be sincere and not pretend
– to be free from hypocrisy: “walk your talk”
– to know who you are and to be that person
– to not fear others seeing your vulnerabilities
– being confident to walk away from situations where you can’t be yourself
– being awake to your own feelings
– being free from others’ opinions of you
– accepting and loving yourself
