Alan W. Watts
“The mystery of life is not a problem to be solved but a reality to be experienced.”
Alan Wilson Watts, Cloud-hidden, Whereabouts Unknown

Steven Pressfield
“Turning pro is like kicking a drug habit or stopping drinking. It's a decision, a decision to which we must re-commit every day.”
Steven Pressfield, Turning Pro

Steven Pressfield
“Ambition, I have come to believe, is the most primal and sacred fundament of our being. To feel ambition and to act upon it is to embrace the unique calling of our souls. Not to act upon that ambition is to turn our backs on ourselves and on the reason for our existence.”
Steven Pressfield, Turning Pro

Marcel Proust
“The only true voyage of discovery . . . would be not to visit strange lands, but to possess other eyes, to behold the universe through the eyes of another, of a hundred others, to behold the hundred universes that each of them beholds, that each of them is.”
Marcel Proust, The Captive / The Fugitive

Chris Hadfield
“You can choose to focus on the surprises and pleasures, or the frustrations. And you can choose to appreciate the smallest scraps of experience, the everyday moments, or to value only the grandest, most stirring ones. Ultimately, the real question is whether you want to be happy.”
Chris Hadfield, An Astronaut's Guide to Life on Earth
