“When I was a boy growing up in Kansas, a friend of mine and I went fishing and as we sat there on the warmth of a summer afternoon we talked about what we wanted to do when we grew up. I told him I wanted to be a major league baseball player, a genuine professional like Honus Wagner. My friend said that he’d like to be president of the United States. Neither of us got our wish.”

“Full many a glorious morning have I seen
Flatter the mountain tops with sovereign eye,
Kissing with golden face the meadows green,
Gilding pale streams with heavenly alchemy;
Anon permit the basest clouds to ride
With ugly rack on his celestial face,
And from the forlorn world his visage hide,
Stealing unseen to west with this disgrace:”

“I was struck by one story the book about a man who went to his fireplace and told it, “Give me warmth; then I’ll provide you with wood.” The authors wrote that giving doesn’t work this way—we don’t get first and then give; rather, it’s only by giving that we can be open to receive, and (they go on to say) it’s only by giving unconditionally that the true benefits come. “

“It is easier to sail many thousand miles through cold and storm and cannibals, in a government ship, with five hundred men and boys to assist one, than it is to explore the private sea, the Atlantic and Pacific Ocean of one’s being alone.”

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream.”

“If anyone were to ask the reason for this
you could only reply,
Who is the sadness for?
Sadness has no reasons. Sadness is a luxury
of spare time, a piece of pie leftover,
the blueberry’s skin caught between your teeth,
the black blear of happiness.”
