Be Better

“To learn to see- to accustom the eye to calmness…” 17 May 2016, 8:27 am

"To learn to see- to accustom the eye to calmness, to patience, and to allow things to come up to it; to defer judgment, and to acquire the habit of approaching and grasping an individual case from all sides. This is the first preparatory schooling of intellectuality. One must not respond immediately to a stimulus; one must acquire a command of the obstructing and isolating instincts."

- Friedrich Nietzsche

Be Level

“I wish Merry was here,” he heard himself saying, and quick thoughts raced through his mind…” 16 May 2016, 6:54 am

"I wish Merry was here," he heard himself saying, and quick thoughts raced through his mind, even as he watched the enemy come charging to the assault. "Well, well, now at any rate I understand poor Denethor a little better. We might die together, Merry and I, and since die we must, why not? Well, as he is not here, I hope he'll find an easier end. But now I must do my best."

? Peregrin Took

Be Decided

“The morning, which is the most memorable season of the day…” 15 May 2016, 6:13 am

"The morning, which is the most memorable season of the day, is the awakening hour. Then there is least somnolence in us; and for an hour, at least, some part of us awakes that slumbers all the rest of the day and night. Little is to be expected of that day, if it can be called a day, to which we are not awakened by our Genius, but by the mechanical nudgings of some servitor, are not awakened by our own newly acquired force and aspirations from within.... After a partial cessation of his sensuous life, the soul of man, or its organs rather, are reinvigorated each day, and his Genius tries again what noble life it can make... The Vedas say, "All intelligences awake with the morning." All poets and heroes, like Memnon, are the children of Aurora, and emit their music at sunrise."

- Henry David Thoreau, Walden

Be Awake

“The only man I know who behaves sensibly…” 14 May 2016, 6:43 am

"The only man I know who behaves sensibly is my tailor; he takes my measurements anew each time he sees me. The rest go on with their old measurements and expect me to fit them."

- George Bernard Shaw

Be Sensible

“Having, then, once introduced an element of inconsistency into his system…” 13 May 2016, 5:52 am

"Having, then, once introduced an element of inconsistency into his system, he was far too consistent not to be inconsistent consistently, and he lapsed ere long into an amiable indifferentism which to outward appearance differed but little from the indifferentism..."

- Samuel Butler

Be Consistant

“Of course motivation is not permanent…” 12 May 2016, 7:04 am
