Here are some things I've learned lately:
“Once social change begins, it cannot be reversed. You cannot uneducate the person who has learned to read. You cannot humiliate the person who feels pride. You cannot oppress the people who are not afraid anymore. We have seen the future, and the future is ours.” -Cesar Chavez
"A man is rich in proportion to the amount of things which he can afford to let alone." -Henry David Thoreau
"From all your herds, a cup or two of milk,
From all your granaries, a loaf of bread,
In all your palace, only half a bed:
Can man use more? And do you own the rest?" -Ancient Sanskrit Poem
"If you have built castles in the air, your work need not be lost; that is where they should be. Now put the foundations under them." -Henry David Thoreau
The more you say you cannot do the something, the more you will believe it. The more you believe it, the more truly you will be unable to do it.
On a separate note...
I'm planning the writing of an ebook. What is something you'd like to learn/read about? I'd love any ideas you have to offer!
