Greek author Plutarch: What we achieve inwardly will change outer reality.
Roman Philosopher Seneca: ‘non vitae sed scholae discimus’. [We are taught for the schoolroom not for life] Now we are not merely to stick knowledge on to the soul: we must incorporate it into her; the soul should not be sprinkled with knowledge but steeped in it.
Modern Day Philosopher Borland: in order to savor tea....it takes time to steep.....but the infusion of flavor that occurs once the steeping is complete.....tastes delectable.....depending on what you choose to steep your tea with....that is)
Discovery can be frustrating, but so liberating and astounding.....just as a quixotic explorer that has even a hint of temerity can go in search of the impossible and still have the ability to dispel the 'im' and leave the rest hanging in the possible....you can do the same. To teach one how to navigate life through their own experience is a gift which should be shared. Self discovery never stops.....continue to dig and you never know what you may find. (note....digging works well when you are angry at your circumstance.....it seems those emotions push one to the edge....of glory and drive one to much discovery....so when in doubt....dig....search....for what you many not know.....but when you find it.....your heart will learn to speak and you will realize the truth in the words "never settle".....for anything less than your hearts desire.
