Some Wisdom

I have a whole box of index cards with quotes on them from the Mastery Foundation. From time to time, I like to share some of them here.

"If you want to build a ship, don't drum up the men to gather wood, divide the tasks and give orders. Instead, teach them to yearn for the vast and endless sea."--Antoine de Saint--Exupery


"If you try to take a cat apart to see how it works, the first thing you have on your hands is a nonworking cat."--Douglas Adams


"To me, every hour of the day and night is an unspeakably perfect miracle."--Walt Whitman


"Always remember that you are absolutely unique. Just like everyone else.--Margaret Mead


"Let me fall if I must. The one I become will catch me."--Baal Shem Tov


"Speech is our second possession, after the soul--and perhaps we have no other possessions in the world."--Gabriela Mistral


"The best way to predict the future is to invent it."--Alan Kay
