To stay young, keep your mind active
Most doctors agree that the secret to keeping the body young is keeping the mind active.
Simplicity, patience, compassion.
These three are your greatest treasures.
Simple in actions and thoughts, you return to the source of being.
Patient with both friends and enemies,
you accord with the way things are.
Compassionate toward yourself,
you reconcile all beings in the world.
You gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You are able to say to yourself, 'I have lived through this horror. I can take the next thing that comes along.' You must do the thing you think you cannot do.
The search for something permanent is one of the deepest of the instincts leading men to philosophy.
It is derived, no doubt, from love of home and desire for a refuge from danger (...) Philosophers have sought with great persistence, for something not subject to the empire of time.
Focus is saying no to 1,000 good ideas.
