Random quote of the day:

“Surely everyone realizes, at some point along the way, that he is capable of living a far better life than the one he has chosen. What stays him, usually, is the fear of the sacrifices involved. (Even to relinquish his chains seems like a sacrifice.) Yet everyone knows that nothing is accomplished without sacrifice.”

—Henry Miller, Big Sur and the Oranges of Hieronymous Bosch

Random quote of the day:

“If fear predominates, then you can’t see what is actually going on around you, because fear is darkness, and in darkness you can see absolutely nothing. If you realize that, then you can see the world actually as it is, then you can see yourself actually as who you are. Because you are the world, and the world is you; they are not two separate entities.”

—J. Krishnamurti, “How To Live In This World,” The Urgency of Change
