This familiarity with a respected physician and my
appreciation of his work,

tormented agony and death of my mother might have influenced
me in wanting to study medicine.
It was not the case.

Is it absurd to imagine that our social behavior,
from amoeba to man, is also planned and dictated,

through him, what he has the illusion of accomplishing himself.

Plant trees for your great-grandchildren -
for future generations.
Create the legacy of a better world.

to represent the kind of legacy
you want to leave to future generations.

Working at a job you hate is unlikely
to bring you either happiness or success.

And, whether wealth follows or not, you will be happy.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

what you are trying to defend from without?

where there is no love.

discover your good qualities without your help.

Do you not know that there comes a midnight hour
when every one has to throw off his mask?
Do you believe that life will always let itself be mocked?
Do you think you can slip away a little before midnight
in order to avoid this? Or are you not terrified by it?
I have seen men in real life who so long deceived others
that at last their true nature could not reveal itself;...
In every man there is something which to a certain degree
prevents him from becoming perfectly transparent to himself;
and this may be the case in so high a degree,
he may be so inexplicably woven into relationships of life
which extend far beyond himself that he almost cannot reveal himself.
But he who cannot reveal himself cannot love,
and he who cannot love is the most unhappy man of all.
- Soren Kierkegaard

of which the far greater part of the members are poor and miserable.

- Edward de Bono

The Sweetest Strawberry:
A man traveling across a field encountered a tiger.
He fled, the tiger after him.
Coming to a precipice,
he caught hold of the root of a wild vine
and swung himself over the edge.
The tiger sniffed at him from above.
Trembling, the man looked down to where,
far below, another tiger was waiting to eat him.
Only the vine sustained him.
Two mice, one white and one black,
little by little started to gnaw away the vine.
The man then saw a luscious strawberry near him.
Grasping the vine with one hand,
he plucked the strawberry with the other.
How sweet it tasted.
- Zen Koan

by making the noblest of God's creation,
woman, the object of our lust.
