This week’s theme: Responsibility. Can you dig it?
“A man sooner or later discovers that he is the master-gardener of his soul, the director of his life.”
‘”It’s a question of discipline,” the little prince told me later on. “When you’ve finished washing and dressing each morning, you must tend your planet.”‘
~Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, The Little Prince, 1943, translated from French by Richard Howard
“Most of us can read the writing on the wall; we just assume it’s addressed to someone else.”
And, for a touch of humor on the matter:
“Responsibility: A detachable burden easily shifted to the shoulders of God, Fate, Fortune, Luck or one’s neighbor. In the days of astrology it was customary to unload it upon a star.”
~Ambrose Bierce, The Devil’s Dictionary
Behind me now is the LSAT, bearer of much stress, master of anxiety. All Saturday was spent on seeing it done, but so it is, and here I am, alive and well.
Now, most importantly, I can begin to focus on other things. I can think to the future, and that is the focus of this week’s quotes. And you should start seeing more posts again from me now, as I should now have more time than was previously available to me. Hopefully you enjoy what comes of it–and hopefully you enjoy the quotes!
“The empires of the future are the empires of the mind.” ~Winston Churchill
“Stop acting as if life is a rehearsal. Live this day as if it were your last. The past is over and gone. The future is not guaranteed.” ~Wayne Dyer
“As for the future, your task is not to foresee it, but to enable it.” ~Antoine de Saint-Exupery
“When it comes to the future, there are three kinds of people: those who let it happen, those who make it happen, and those who wonder what happened.” ~John M. Richardson, Jr.
