Honest Abe

It’s surprising how much you can accomplish if you don’t care who gets the credit.

– Abraham Lincoln

Karmanyevaadhikaaraste maa phaleshu kadaachana;
Maa karmaphalahetur bhoor maa te sango’stwakarmani.

You have a right to perform your dutiful action, but you are not entitled to the fruits of action. Never consider yourself to be the cause of the results of your activities, and never be attached to inaction.

– Bhagvad Gita Ch.2 verse 47

Mahatma Gandhi

And on these thoughts, lets remember Gandhi on his birthday today.

solitude

“Cherish your solitude. Take trains by yourself to places you have never been. Sleep out alone under the stars. Go so far away that you stop being afraid of not coming back. Say no when you don’t want to do something. Say yes if your instincts are strong, even if everyone around you disagrees. Decide whether you want to be liked or admired. Decide if fitting in is more important than finding out what you’re doing here…”

Eve Ensler (best known for her play The Vagina Monologues)

 

Patience

Writing is good, thinking is better. Cleverness is good, patience is better.

– from Herman Hesse’s Siddhartha

 

Cheerful boy

Running long and hard is an ideal antidepressant, since it’s hard to run and feel sorry for yourself at the same time. Also, there are those hours of clear headedness that follow a long run.

– Monte Davis, runner
