407 – A Quote about Life
“I want to live simply. I want to sit by the window when it rains and read books I’ll never be tested on.
I want to paint because I want to, not because I’ve got something to prove. I want to listen to my body, fall asleep when the moon is high and wake up slowly, with no place to rush off to.
I want not to be governed by money or clocks or any artificial restraints that humanity imposes on itself. I just want to be, boundless and infinite.”
403 – “The question isn’t who is going to let me; it’s who is going to stop me.”
-Ayn Rand [Paraphrase, see Source Notes] (more…)
175 – “Worry a little bit every day and in a lifetime you will lose a couple of years. If something is wrong, fix it if you can. But train yourself not to worry: Worry never fixes anything.”
145 – 「说不能做的人不应该打断那个正在做的人。」
“Shuō bu néng zuò de rén bù yìng gāi dǎ duàn nàgè zhèngzài zuò de rén.”
“The person who says it cannot be done should not interrupt the person who is doing it.”
