Dan Pearce
“Every time we look at the clock, we must learn to feel a sense of urgency. We must learn to realize that “now” is happening and will very soon be gone. We must look at the digits on the display and be overcome with an urge to do something before those digits change. Before “now” slips through our fingers. We must look at the ink on the calendar and see an immediate opportunity to do something wonderful, incredible, or beautiful.

It’s that simple. We need to change our thinking from “when the number changes” to “before the number changes”.”
Dan Pearce, Single Dad Laughing

Elif Shafak
“Всемирът е едно. Всичко и всички са свързани помежду си чрез невидима плетеница от истории. И да го знаем, и да не го знаем, всички водим безмълвен разговор. Не причинявай зло. Проявявай състрадание. И недей да злословиш зад гърба на другите - не отправяй дори наглед безобидни нападки! Думите, които излизат от устата ни, не изчезват, а постоянно се трупат в безграничното пространство, за да се върнат при нас, когато му дойде времето. От болката на един ще ни заболи всички. От радостта на един ще се усмихнем всички [...].”
Elif Shafak, The Forty Rules of Love

Charles Dickens, David Copperfield

“When I have my interview with my God, our conversation will focus on the individuals whose self-esteem I was able to strengthen, whose faith I was able to reinforce, and whose discomfort I was able to assuage—a doer of good, regardless of what assignment I had. These are the metrics of that matter in measuring my life. This realization, which occurred nearly fifteen years ago, guided me every day to seek opportunities to help people in ways tailored to their individual circumstances. My happiness and my sense of worth has been immeasurably improved as a result.”
Clayton Christensen
