Dispositions

The greater part of our Happiness or Misery depends on our dispositions and not our circumstances.

Good & Evil

I believe that there is one story in the world, and only one. . . . Humans are caught—in their lives, in their thoughts, in their hungers and ambitions, in their avarice and cruelty, and in their kindness and generosity too—in a net of good and evil. . . . There is no other story. A man, after he has brushed off the dust and chips of his life, will have left only the hard, clean questions: Was it good or was it evil? Have I done well—or ill?
~ John Steinbeck, East of Eden

Walls

There are four kinds of people in the world…
Those who build walls.
Those who protect walls.
Those who breach walls.
And those who tear down walls.
Much of life is discovering who you are.
When you find out,
you also realize there are places
you can no longer go,
things you can no longer do,
words you can no longer say.
~ P.S. Baber, Cassie Draws the Universe

Path to the End

We rest; a dream has power to poison sleep
We rise; one wand’ring thought pollutes the day.
We feel, conceive, or reason; laugh or weep,
Embrace fond woe, or cast our cares away,
It is the same: for, be it joy or sorrow,
The path of its departure still is free.
Man’s yesterday may ne’er be like his morrow;
Nought may endure but Mutability!
~Percy Bysshe Shelley

Refuse to Accept Anything

It is a funny thing about life-
if you refuse to accept anything
but the best you very often get it.
~ W. Somerset Maugham
