Seeking Inspiration

“I may not have gone where I intended to go, but I think I have ended up where I needed to be.”
— Douglas Adams, The Long Dark Tea-Time of the Soul

“If the world were merely seductive, that would be easy. If it were merely challenging, that would be no problem. But I arise in the morning torn between a desire to improve the world and a desire to enjoy the world. This makes it hard to plan the day.”
— E.B. White

“I’m the one that has to die when it’s time for me to die, so let me live my life, the way I want to.”

“How wonderful it is that nobody need wait a single moment before starting to improve the world.”

“But better to be hurt by the truth than comforted with a lie.”
— Khaled Hosseini

“Finish every 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; you shall begin it serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense.”
— Ralph Waldo Emerson

“Reality continues to ruin my life.”
— Bill Watterson, The Complete Calvin and Hobbes

“He who has a why to live can bear almost any how.”
— Friedrich Nietzsche
