“You have lost faith in anything great; you are doomed, then, doomed to perish unless that faith returns, like a comet from unknown skies.”
Friedrich Hölderlin

“To the Parcae"

A single summer grant me, great powers, and
a single autumn for fully ripened song
that, sated with the sweetness of my
playing, my heart may more willingly die.
The soul that, living, did not attain its divine
right cannot repose in the nether world.
But once what I am bent on, what is
holy, my poetry, is accomplished:
Be welcome then, stillness of the shadows’ world!
I shall be satisfied though my lyre will not
accompany me down there. Once I
lived like the gods, and more is not needed.”
Friedrich Hölderlin

Jeff Bezos
“Most people,” he said, “think that if they work hard, they should be able to master a handstand in about two weeks. The reality is that it takes about six months of daily practice. If you think you should be able to do it in two weeks, you’re just going to end up quitting.” Unrealistic beliefs on scope – often hidden and undiscussed – kill high standards. To achieve high standards yourself or as part of a team, you need to form and proactively communicate realistic beliefs about how hard something is going to be.”
Jeff Bezos, Amazon Letters To Shareholders 1997-2016

Epictetus
“28. If a person gave your body to any stranger he met on his way, you would certainly be angry. And do you feel no shame in handing over your own mind to be confused and mystified by anyone who happens to verbally attack you?”
Epictetus, The Enchiridion

Dushyant Kumar
“हाथों में अंगारों को लिए सोच रहा था,

कोई मुझे अंगारों की तासीर बताए”
Dushyant Kumar

Arthur Schopenhauer
“clumsy charlatan like Hegel is confidently branded as such? German philosophy is precisely so, laden with contempt, mocked abroad, rejected by honest sciences – like a strumpet who, for filthy lucre, yesterday gave herself up to one, today to another; and the minds of the contemporary generation of scholars are jumbled by Hegelian nonsense: incapable of thought, coarse and stupefied, they become the prey of the vulgar materialism that has crept out of the Basilisk's egg”
Arthur Schopenhauer, Schopenhauer: On the Fourfold Root of the Principle of Sufficient Reason and Other Writings: 4

Epictetus
“There are two things that must be rooted out in human beings - arrogant opinion and mistrust. Arrogant opinion expects that there is nothing further needed, and mistrust assumes that under the torrent of circumstance there can be no happiness.”
Epictetus, The Discourses
