To die, and leave their children free,
Bid Time and Nature gently spare
The shaft we raise to them and thee.”

Self-sufficiency…has three meanings. The first is that one should not depend upon others for one’s daily bread. The second is that one should have developed the power to acquire knowledge for oneself. The third is that a man should be able to rule himself, to control his senses and his thoughts.” ~ Vinoba Bhave

“Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could. Some blunders and absurdities no doubt crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day; begin it well and serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense.” ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

When you are inspired by some great purpose,

some extraordinary project, all your thoughts break

their bonds: Your mind transcends limitations, your

consciousness expands in every direction, and you find

yourself in a new, great, and wonderful world. Dormant

forces, faculties and talents become alive, and you

discover yourself to be a greater person by far than you

ever dreamed yourself to be.

~ Patanjali, Philosopher
