Zen Nerdist says: “Life’s possibilities are endless. Your only limits are those that you create for yourself.”
A scholar knows many books; a well-educated person has knowledge and skills; an enlightened person understands the meaning and purpose of his life.
Zen Nerdist says: “How? Transform the way you view the world. Understand that you alone are responsible for yourself and your perceptions of your world. Take the regins of your emotions and experiences and you’ll soon find the world is full of wonder you probably never knew existed.”
Zen Nerdist says: “If you have an opportunity to dance in the rain - take it!”
Reminder: By tomorrow today will be forever gone. Always make the most of the moment you’re currently in.
Democracy does not require perfect equality, but it does require that citizens share in a common life. What matters is that people of different backgrounds and social positions encounter one another, and bump up against one another, in the course of everyday life. For this is how we learn to negotiate and abide our differences, and how we come to care for the common good.
~ Michael J. Sandel from his book What Money Can’t Buy: The Moral Limits of Markets
Zen Nerdist says: “Society would prosper if we focused a little more on the good of all and not just a privileged few.”
Zen Nerdist says: “Life is a balancing act. When there are ups there are also downs, when there is laughter there is also pain, and where there is a life there is also death. Life works in symmetry.”
Zen Nerdist says: “You have only one shot, strive to make it the best you can ever imagine.”
How you get there determines where you arrive and what you arrive as.
