The more sand that has escaped from the hourglass of our life, the clearer we should see through it.

True fulfillment

Fulfillment is not what someone else says it is. Fulfillment is what you feel it to be.

When you chase goals that are not really yours, you’re not very likely to reach them. And even if you do, it will bring no real sense of satisfaction.

There’s much you can gain by always making a good impression. Yet if impressing others is the only thing that matters to you, life can be terribly sad and empty.

There are so many beautiful and original possibilities for your unique life. There’s no need to borrow the tired, old, worn-out cliches of what it means to have a rich and fulfilling life.

Live your own dreams, the ones that truly mean the world to you. To be authentically impressive you must first be authentic.

Fulfillment for you is whatever feels good and right and fulfilling to you. Live that true fulfillment, and experience the beautiful richness that is uniquely yours.

— Ralph Marston
