ETERNALLY ACCOUNTABLE


"The people I respect most behave as if they were immortal and as if society was eternal."

E. M. Forster, 20th century English novelist.

They behave as though they would eternally be held accountable for what they say and do.

If only that were true for all of us all the time.

MOVING ON


"Man cannot discover new oceans unless he has the courage to lose sight of the shore."

André Paul Guillaume Gide, late 19th/early 20th century French author/Nobel prize winner.

If you sometimes don't let go of what is you will never find what might be.

DREAM, PLAN, ACT!


"Man is a genius when he is dreaming."

Akira Kurosawa, 20th century Japanese film maker.

Kurosawa-san was right describing our dreams, both those while we sleep and those awake, as an indication of human genius.

However, a dream not realized is only a dream.

To actually be genius we must evolve what we dream to reality.

Dream, plan, act!

THERE IS TIME NOW. TAKE IT!


"And when is there time to remember, to sift, to weigh, to estimate, to total?"

Tillie Olsen, 20th century American writer.

Time to consider where you've been, where you are and where you'd like to go in the time left to you.

Your time.

It is finite, don't waste it.

I AM SO JEALOUS OF THOSE WHO ARE NOT SO JEALOUS


"The jealous are troublesome to others, but a torment to themselves."

William Penn, 17th century English entrepreneur.

While there is no cure for jealousy we can be aware when we are.

You'll be jealous but at least fight like hell not to show you are.
