So you wish to conquer in the Olympic games, my friend? And I too, by the Gods, and a fine thing it would be! But first mark the conditions and the consequences, and then set to work. You will have to put yourself under discipline; to eat by rule, to avoid cakes and sweetmeats; to take exercise at the appointed hour whether you like it or no, in cold and heat; to abstain from cold drinks and from wine at your will; in a word, to give yourself over to the trainer as to a physician. Then in the conflict itself you are likely enough to dislocate your wrist or twist your ankle, to swallow a great deal of dust, or to be severely thrashed, and, after all these things, to be defeated.

So. The time has come for me to get my kite flying, stretch out in the sun, kick off my shoes, and speak my piece. 'The days of struggle are over,' I should be able to say. 'I can look back now and tell myself I don't have a single regret.' But I do. Many years ago a very wise man named Bernard Baruch took me aside and put his arm around my shoulder. 'Harpo, my boy,' he said, 'I'm going to give you three pieces of advice, three things you should always remember.' My heart jumped and I glowed with expectation. I was going to hear the magic password to a rich, full life from the master himself. 'Yes, sir' I said. And he told me the three things. I regret that I've forgotten what they were.

Society is a more level surface than we imagine. Wise men or absolute fools are hard to be met with, as there are few giants or dwarfs. The heaviest charge we can bring against the general texture of society is that it is commonplace. Our fancied superiority to others is in some one thing which we think most of because we excel in it, or have paid most attention to it; whilst we overlook their superiority to us in something else which they set equal and exclusive store by.

– anonymous, Letter to the Editor, The Advocate
Solemos decir "perdón y olvido". Esa es mi humilde opinión la secuencia correcta. Si quieres olvidar a alguien o algún evento desagradable, primero debe perdonar. El perdón es el precursor de olvidar. Si vosotros no perdonáis, que nunca olvidará, y que alguien o ese evento desagradable se quedará con usted, tallada en el interior de su corazón y el fondo de tu mente. Como una cámara de magma de un volcán, a continuación, encarnar la lava ardiente de odio y cenizas volcánicas de malos recuerdos. Por lo que seguir adelante con la vida, usted debe aprender a perdonar, en primer lugar, incluso en las peores personas que redondear. La corriente de la vida sería entonces fluir suavemente y sin problemas - adelante y hacia arriba.
