You must live in the present, launch yourself on every wave, find your eternity in each moment. Fools stand on their island opportunities and look toward another land. There is no other land, this is no other life but this.
You must not for one instant give up the effort to build new lives for yourselves. Creativity means to push open the heavy, groaning doorway to life. This is not an easy struggle. Indeed, it may be the most difficult task in the world, for opening the door to your own life is, in the end, more difficult than opening the doors to the mysteries of the universe.
You ought to stick with true love for life. For, it doesn't pay to stick with hatred/untrue love. Besides, to hate is just to die slowly/prematurely. But, to truly love is just to live healthily/perpetually.
You say I'm worthless yet you waste your time on me. You say i can't do anything right but you still waste your breath on me. You tell me I'm stupid yet you still try to teach me. You tell me to live my life yet you give me no life to live?
You say that my way of thinking cannot be tolerated? What of it? The man who alters his way of thinking to suit others is a fool. My way of thinking is the result of my reflections. It is part of my inner being, the way I am made. I do not contradict them, and would not even if I wished to. For my system, which you disapprove of, is also my greatest comfort in life, the source of all my happiness --- it means more to me than my life itself.
You shouldn't be weighed down or overwhelmed because of your past life/mistakes/failures/disappointments. Yes, all you've got to do is just to press on towards achieving greater/better future or things. For, the best days/things of your life are yet to come.
You shouldn't live and long to be like someone else. Yes, because God made you to be you and never to long to be like someone else. And believe you me, no one can be like you. And you can't be like anybody out there. So, be you and remain you for life in anything you are doing presently and whatever you will do subsequently.
You shouldn't thank God only for what he has done for you already. Yes! you should equally thank him in advance for what he is yet to do for you. I mean, dare to thank God in anticipation. Moreover, thank him (God) for your past life, your present life and the future ahead of you.
You wake up in the morning, and your purse is magically filled with twenty-four hours of unmanufactured tissue of the universe of your life It is yours. It is the most precious of possessions. No one can take it from you. And no one receives either more or less than you receive.
You're alive. Do something. The directive in life, the moral imperative was so uncomplicated. It could be expressed in single words, not complete sentences. It sounded like this Look. Listen. Choose. Act.
