Today's Contemplation

Great spirits have always encountered violent opposition from mediocre minds.

-- Albert Einstein


“Seek not to have things happen as you choose them, but rather choose that they should happen as they do; and you shall live prosperously.”

-- Aurelius


The secret to peace is not to make our achievements equal to our desires, but to lower our desires to the level of our achievements.


“If what you have seems insufficient to you, then, though you possess the world, you will yet be miserable.”


Keep your head. Our busy minds are forever jumping to conclusions, manufacturing and interpreting signs that aren’t there.

Hold on to your true aspirations no matter what is going on around you.



When the soul cries out, it is a sign that we have arrived at a necessary, mature stage of self-reflection. The secret is not to get stuck there dithering or wringing your hands, but to move forward by resolving to heal yourself by moving into courage.
