A vacation should be just
long enough for the boss to find out he misses you, but not long enough for him

Familiar things happen,
and mankind does not bother about them. It requires a very unusual mind to undertake the analysis of the obvious.
– Alfred North Whitehead (1861-1947)
You must not live with a
calculated motive of pleasing other people. Such motive is ego-centered; it expects some kind
of reward. When the reward fails to come, as it often does, the so-called pleasantness turns to secret resentment.
– Vernon Howard
Those who have suffered
understand suffering and therefore extend their hand.
– Patti Smith
