Unless you try to do something beyond what you have already mastered, you will never grow. Every job is a self portrait of the person who did it … Autograph your work with excellence.
—Vince Lombardi Jr.
When you get into the territory of obsessive thoughts, things get very tricky. Like a person who’s against you your brain tries to trip you up. Tries to tear and break you down in anyway possible. Ignorance is bliss, but not always. When tackling those destructive thoughts determined to bring you down simply think.
Remember of the things you were absolutely sure of and remember that those thoughts and feelings are not the real you.
I confess I do not believe in time. I like to fold my magic carpet, after use, in such a way as to superimpose one part of the pattern upon another. Let visitors trip. And the highest enjoyment of timelessness-in a landscape selected at random-is when I stand among rare butterflies and their food plants. This is ecstasy, and behind the ecstasy is something else, which is hard to explain. It is like a momentary vacuum into which rushes all that I love. A sense of oneness with sun and stone. A thrill of gratitude to whom it may concern-to the contrapuntal genius of human fate or to tender ghosts humoring a lucky mortal.
