Science and art belong to the whole world, and before them vanish the barriers of nationality.

Do with it all

Life keeps coming toward you at a rapidly increasing pace. And you can make use of it all.

Each day arrives bearing problems, promises, pleasures, beauty, frustration, inspiration and overwhelming details. Find something positive and fulfilling to do with all that valuable raw material.

The criticism you receive, the insights that suddenly hit you, the tedious chores, and the wondrous moments all have their place. The boredom, the excitement, the fear, the confidence, the hot and the cold, the weariness and the joy add real, priceless substance to your life.

You can take it all and make it all into something great. Whatever energy comes your way is yours to channel and to apply as you see fit.

There is a bright and wonderful purpose to your life. And everything in your life can serve, in one way or another, to advance that purpose.

In all its different aspects, life just keeps on coming. And you can keep on making it great.

— Ralph Marston
