Get Back the Passion

Measure your health by your sympathy with morning and spring. If there is no response in you to the awakening of nature, if the prospect of an early morning walk does not banish sleep, if the warble of the first bluebird does not thrill you, know that the morning and spring of your life are past. Thus you may feel your pulse.


—Henry David Thoreau


The way to get started is to quit talking and begin doing.

Disney, Walt

Take Command

Reject your sense of injury and the injury itself disappears.

Aurelius, Marcus 2


—Marcus Aurelius

Never play the victim, either outwardly or inwardly, at any stage of life. Take command, to the best of your ability, and your outlook on life will change radically.

Live with Passion

It is not length of life, but depth of life.


—Ralph Waldo Emerson
