#1 — Escaping The Darkest Pits

“You must never give in to despair. Allow yourself to slip down that road and you surrender to your lowest instincts.

In the darkest times, hope is something you give yourself. That is the meaning of inner strength.”

#2 — My friend, be water

“It is important to draw wisdom from many different places. If we take it from only one place, it becomes rigid and stale.”

“Absorb what is useful, reject what is useless, add what is essentially your own.”

#3 — Here Is Always The Best Place To Be

“Life happens wherever you are, whether you make it or not.”
